    Wise words Ann,  Tamariki are powerful learners in their own right! I think the key is that as educators we need to be able to articulate our professonal knowledge and advocate for childrens learning. It is not always an easy place to be but if we are clear on why we do what we do in our pogrammes then together we (teachers/educators/whanau/tamariki)  can take a collaborative journey into learning and I am sure we will all learn new things along the way.

      Hi Carol

      Thanks for adding to my post, couldn't agree more with your comment about the importance of articulating professional knowledge.

    Such a great read Ann and unfortunately so true. I've often reflected as a junior primary teacher in my first 3 years, how I never stopped to consider how much I could have learnt from the interactions I had with preschool teachers through school visits and other activities but tended to see it in quite the reverse. What a missed opportunity that was and probably still is.  Te Whāriki is a totally unique and wonderful way to guide our little people's learning so thank you for reminding us of this.
