Workshop 15: Acquiring Whānau Voice the Enjoyable and Authentic way!
Struggling to fill in those boxes with the “Parent voice”? I welcome you to come along and share in our journey. We have unpacked a simple formula to ensure our learning stories include authentic whānau voice. We’re at the beginning of incorporating this new approach and welcome you to come along and be inspired! Nau mai haere mai!
I have been working as the manager of a small centre (Kensington Educare) in Whangarei for the past 6 years. We are a small and non-purpose built centre with no immediate community available to support us. We cater to a wide ethnic/socio group of diversity and have to work creatively to create our own strong centre culture. I am passionate about working with whānau and ensuring they feel in partnership with their child’s learning journey.
