Te-Whariki

Te Whāriki is the Ministry of Education’s early childhood curriculum policy statement.

Te Whāriki is a framework for providing children’s early learning and development within a sociocultural context. It emphasises the learning partnership between teachers, parents, and families.

Te Whariki is founded on the following aspirations for children:

“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.”
