Local Curriculum: Planning, Implementing, and Evaluation Workshop (New Plymouth)

09:30:00 to 13:30:00
New Plymouth, New Zealand

Te Whāriki (2017) sets the expectation that ECE services will use the curriculum framework as a basis for weaving with children, parents and whanau its own local curriculum, taking into consideration aspirations and learning priorities. The Licensing Criteria (2016) also stipulate that centres must have a service curriculum that is consistent with Te Whāriki.

Centres are required to specify “what matters here”. This workshop will outline -

  • How to develop a local curriculum framework policy and how this links to the Licensing Criteria requirements
  • Key components of a local service curriculum
  • How to develop local processes for planning, implementing, and evaluating

Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the requirements of a local curriculum and how to determine “what matters here”.

Please bring along your copy of Te Whāriki.

Facilitator: Katina Beauchamp
