What do children learn?
Our curriculum aspirations for childrenWe are proud to have Te Whāriki, the New Zealand early childhood curriculum, as the foundation of our programme. Central to Te Whāriki is the aspiration that all young learners will: “Grow up as competent 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.” At KiwiLearners we value the following learning outcomes
Wellbeing - children learn to keep themselves and others safe and wellPositive attitudes toward health, safety, independence in self help and self care, and playfulness & curiosity.
Belonging - children learn to feel they and their families belong and have a place in the centreHaving a ‘place’ in the centre, secure in own identity, connected with others, Managing behaviour, through self control & emotional regulation, empathy, social competence,
