Weaving te ao Māori into everyday practice

Thursday 28 October 2021, 6–8pm | $60.00pp

We have an integral role in ensuring the naturalisation and centring of Te Ao Māori in ECE. In this workshop kaiako will learn practical ways to meaningfully embed mātauranga Māori into their every day practice with tamariki. It will be a safe, fun and engaging space and it doesn’t matter where you are on your haerengā (journey). Everyone is welcome. Maria and Emma are passionate about supporting kaiako from all walks of life and uses waiata, te reo Māori, tīkanga Māori, pūrakau Māori and collaborative kōrero in their waananga with kaiako. Nau mai haere mai!

Leadership Waananga:

Te Tiriti centered leadership in ECE

Friday 29 October 2021, 9am–3pm | $180.00pp (includes morning tea and lunch)

There is a palpable shift happening in the political and cultural consciousness of Aotearoa today. This is being reflected in the education system in a common trajectory towards a true enactment of partnership between tangata whenua and tangata tiriti. 

It is integral for us as kaiarahi (leaders) in ECE to deepen and strengthen our knowledge and delivery of te tiriti centred leadership, in order to remain on board the waka as it navigates the waves of this shift. 

During this day long waananga we will explore a range of whakaaro and strategies for kaiarahi to understand how they can fulfil their commitment within the partnership between tangata whenua and tangata tiriti.
