THE IMAGE OF THE CHILD IN THE CONTEXT OF TE WHĀRIKI

A course for early childhood educators and teachers

"...to grow up as competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society."

"Ko te whakatipu i te mana o te mokopuna te tino taumata hei whāinga mā tātaou."

The image of the child we hold underpins the way in which we interact and our pedagogical approach.  In both Māori and English sections of Te Whāriki the image of the child is defined.  How does this translate into practice in your setting.  This workshop shares a Māori perspective that draws upon traditional and contemporary Māori knowledge to assist participants to further define their image of the child within the Aotearoa New Zealand early learning context.
