I'm ok, you're ok / Kei te pai ahau, kei te pai koe
presented by Lynn Rupe

Te Whāriki (2017, pg. 20) reminds us that, “the wellbeing of each child is interdependent with the wellbeing of their kaiako, parents and whānau.” Bronfenbrenner believed that the quality of the interactions with children is very much  reliant on the caregiver receiving support and recognition.

I’m ok, you’re ok is an opportunity to think about teachers’ wellbeing!  How do we ensure that the teacher (caregiver) receives support and recognition in order for wonderful teaching practice to flourish?  What does teacher wellbeing have to do with children’s wellbeing?  And how can we ensure teachers are OK?  Aroha mai, aroha atu.

Meaningfull, Motivating and Measurable
resented by Tania Bullick

This workshop will give you the opportunity to think about strategic planning, annual planning and ways of working that align many of the governance requirements within early childhood centres. We will discuss ways of being that tick all the boxes for staff appraisal, teacher registration, internal evaluation, assessment, planning and strategic and annual plans. ERO want to see more alignment in all these areas and we will discuss aligning each of these tasks through meaningful, measurable and motivating ways of working as a team. “Intrinsically meaningful experiences equals ownership”. Fullan (p. 82).
