Early Years professional development solutions

Working theories are one of the key outcomes of interest for young learners emphasised in Te Whāriki (Ministry of Education, 1996). In describing learning outcomes for children Te Whāriki describes knowledge skills and attitudes which combine as learning dispositions and working theories. Similarly, the New Zealand Curriculum (2007) places value on critical, creative and reflective thinking as desirable learning for all students.

  • Introduction to working theories. We will work with those keen to explore working theories for the first time.
  • Strenghtening opportunities for children to express and explore working theories. We will work with you to enrich the ways you work with children and support you to create environments that encourage theorising, wonder and expression.
