Te Whāriki

Hope Preschool Curriculum

The New Zealand early childhood curriculum is Te Whāriki. This provides a framework of principles and learning outcomes which our teachers weave into our local curriculum along with the interests, needs and strengths of the children and the aspirations of parents, whānau and community. Our curriculum supports every child to be strong in his or her identity, language and culture.

Te Whāriki

“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”
