2 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Hunga Ririki ki te marae o Te Wairoa Iti, ki Waverley i Taranaki. Kua tino whakapeto ngoi ngā kaimahi ki te whakapakari ake i tō rātou mōhiotanga me tō rātou māramatanga ki Te Whāriki me Te Korowai. Ka whakarite te kaiwhakahaere i ngā āhuatanga whakahaere o te tari, ā, ka hāpai hoki i ngā kaiako ki te whakatutuki i ngā whakahaeretanga o ia rā.

3 Ngā Whakaaturanga

Ngā wāhanga e pai ana te whakahaere

Ka ngākau nui ngā tamariki ki te hōtaka akoranga. Ka whakarato te whānau i te whānuitanga o ngā tūmomo taumahi, rauemi hoki i āta whakaritea ai, ā, e hāngai ana anō hoki ki ngā reanga o ngā tamariki. He hihiri, he tākare hoki ngā kaiako. E tino poipoia ana ngā matea o ngā pēpi. He pai ki ngā tamariki te tākaro takirōpū me te takitahi. Ka whai wāhi mātātoa ngā tamariki ki ngā karakia me ngā waiata. Ka tautoko ngā tuākana i ngā tēina. Ka akiaki ngā kaimahi i ngā tamariki ki te tiaki i tō rātou wāhi. Ka ako ngā tamariki ki te whakapai haere i muri i ā rātou tūmomo mahi, kia noho mā ai te kōhanga reo. He pakari tā rātou whakatutuki haere i ngā mahinga me ngā tūmanako kua āta whakaritea. He mauritau ngā tamariki.

Ka whakarato ngā mahere hōtaka i ngā aratohu e whai hua ana ki ngā kaimahi. Kua whakaritea ngā mahere marautanga o te pae tawhiti me te pae tata, ā, e mau ana i ngā whāinga ako e hāngai pū ana ki ia reanga. Whakatakotohia ai e ngā kaimahi i ia te wā i te ahu whakamua o ngā tamariki, me te huarahi ako ka whāia e ia tamaiti. He aratohu aromatawai ā rātou mō ia kaupapa, ā, e tāutu ana ēnei i ngā whakaritenga ka whai atu, e aroturuki ana hoki i te whakawhanaketanga o te reo Māori, ā, e whakatakoto ana hoki i ngā kitenga o te whai wāhi atu ki ngā taumahi ako. Kua tautokona te kaiako e te purapura, ā, he mārakerake ake tōna māramatanga ki tōna tūranga me āna kawenga mahi. Ka whakatairangatia te ako a ngā tamariki.

Ka aro nui ngā tamariki ki te reo Māori. I ngā wā katoa, ka kōrero ngā kaimahi i te reo Māori ki ngā tamariki. He tino tauira rātou mō ngā tamariki me te whānau. He tokomaha ngā tamariki ka rongo i te reo Māori i te kōhanga reo anake. Ka kitea te tūmāia, te manawa whakahī anō hoki o ngā tamariki tuākana i ngā wā o ngā karakia me ngā waiata. Ka tāwhai ngā tamariki tēina me ngā pēpi i ngā kupu me ngā kīanga. E whakawhanake ana ngā tamariki i tō rātou māramatanga ki te reo Māori.

Ngā Whakaritenga Matua ka Whai Ake

Kāhore ngā kaimahi e aromātai ōkawa ana i te whai huatanga o te hōtaka akoranga. Hui ai rātou i ia te wā, engari kāhore rātou e tuhi ana i ā rātou whakawhitinga kōrero ngaio. Kāhore ngā tamariki e whiwhi ana i ngā hua o tētahi hōtaka e tāutu ana i tēnā i whai hua ai, me tēnā anō hoki hei whakapai ake.

Ka whai hua ngā tamariki nā te pai o te taiao ako. Kua toro atu te whānau ki te tautoko ngaio me te ārahitanga ngaio hei whakapai ake i ngā putanga ako o ngā tamariki. Kua whakapakarihia e ngā kaimahi tō rātou māramatanga ki Te Whāriki me ngā āhuatanga e whai pānga ana ki te ako a ngā tamariki. E noho pūmau ana ngā kaimahi ki te whakapai ake i ō rātou mōhiotanga me ō rātou pūkenga i roto i ngā wāhanga katoa. He harikoa ngā tamariki, ā, ka whai wāhi nui rātou.

Kua pai ake te māramatanga o te whānau ki ō rātou tūranga me ā rātou kawenga mahi. Kua whiwhi rātou i te tautoko o waho hei whakapai ake i ngā wāhanga katoa o te whakahaeretanga. He mōhiotanga tō te heamana hou ki te whakahaeretanga, ā, e whakarato ana ia i te tino ārahitanga i roto i te whakawhanaketanga ngaio me te tauatanga. Kua whai wāhi matua ia ki te whakapakari i te hononga ki waenga i te marae me te kōhanga reo. Kua arohaehaengia ngā kaimahi. Kua uru atu te kaiwhakahaere ki tētahi hōtaka whakangungu a te Poari Matua o Ngā Kōhanga Reo, ā, e arotahi ana ia ki te whakapai tonutanga i roto i ngā wāhanga katoa o te whakahaere tari. Kua whakatutukihia, kua tuhia hoki ngā akoako hōneatanga ohorere, ā, kua whakahoungia hoki te katoa o ngā kaupapa here. Kei te tūtohinga ngā pārongo kōrero kia mōhio ai te whānau ki te hītori, ngā tikanga whakaaro, me ngā kaupapa matua hoki mō meāke nei. He mārama, he inenga hoki ā ngā whāinga rautaki e āta aroturukitia ana. Kua whakatutuki kētia ētahi o ngā whāinga. E whakarite ana te whānau ki te whakatairanga ake i tō rātou aronga i te hapori whānui. E whakahaerehia ana te kōhanga reo hei painga mō ngā tamariki.

4 Ngā Taunakitanga

I whakawhanakehia e Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga me te whānau o te kōhanga reo ngā taunakitanga e whai ake nei:

Ka whakahaere anō Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te aromātai whai muri o Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Hunga Ririkii roto i te toru o ngā tau.

1 Background

Introduction

A supplementary evaluation is undertaken at the discretion of the Deputy Chief Review Officer Māori in the Education Review Office (ERO).

ERO evaluates the extent and effectiveness of actions a kōhanga reo has taken towards addressing issues specified in its previous ERO evaluation and/or any additional areas identified since that evaluation.

Terms of Reference

This supplementary evaluation is based on an evaluation of the performance of the kōhanga reo governing body and management in relation to areas identified in the previous ERO report or issues identified since that evaluation. The terms of reference for this evaluation area to investigate:

  • whānau roles and responsibilities
  • strategic planning
  • programme planning
  • evaluation and assessment
  • areas of non-compliance including evacuation, emergency drills, appraisal and professional development
  • and any issues identified since the previous review.

2 Context

Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Hunga Ririki is on Te Wairoa Iti Marae in Waverley, Taranaki. The kaimahi have taken significant steps to build their knowledge and understanding of Te Whāriki and Te Korowai. The kaiwhakahaere manages administration requirements and supports the kaiako to manage day to day operations.

3 Findings

Areas of progress

Children enjoy the learning programme. Whānau provide a range of well organised, age appropriate activities and resources. Kaiako are energetic and enthusiastic. Babies’ needs are well catered for. Children play happily with others and on their own. Children actively participate in karakia and waiata. Tuākana support their tēina. Kaimahi encourage children to care for their environment. Children learn to tidy up after themselves and keep their kōhanga reo clean. They confidently follow well established routines and expectations. Children are settled.

Programme planning provides useful guidelines for kaimahi. Long and short term curriculum plans are in place with specific learning goals for each age group. Kaimahi regularly record children’s progress and next learning steps in individual profiles. They have assessment guidelines for each kaupapa, which includes identifying next steps, monitoring of te reo Māori development and observations of participation in learning activities. The kaiako has had support from the purapura and has a clearer understanding of her role and responsibilities. Children’s learning is enhanced.

Children respond to te reo Māori. The kaimahi speak te reo Māori with children at all times. They are role models for both children and whānau. Many of the children only hear te reo Maori while at kōhanga reo. Older children show confidence and pride in karakia and waiata. Younger children and babies mimic words and phrases. Children are developing their understanding of te reo Māori.

Key Next Steps

Kaimahi do not formally evaluate the effectiveness of the learning programme. They meet regularly but do not record their professional discussions. Children do not benefit from a programme that identifies what went well and what can be improved.

Children benefit from a positive learning environment. Whānau have sought professional support and guidance to improve the learning outcomes for children. Kaimahi have strengthened their understanding of Te Whāriki and how children learn. Kaimahi are committed to improving their knowledge and skills in all areas. Children are happy and engaged.

Whānau have an improved understanding of their roles and responsibilities. They have had external support to improve all areas of operation. The new chairperson has a background in management and provides strong leadership in performance development and succession planning. He has played an integral role in strengthening the relationship between the marae and the kōhanga reo. Kaimahi have been appraised. The kaiwhakahaere is on a Te Kohanga Reo National Trust training programme and is focussed on continual improvement of all areas of administration. Emergency evacuation drills have been conducted and recorded and all policies have been updated. The charter provides information for the whānau on the history, philosophy and future priorities for the whānau. Strategic goals are clear, measurable and well monitored. Some goals have already been achieved. The whānau have a plan to raise their profile in the local community. The kōhanga reo is managed in the best interests of children.

4 Recommendations

ERO and the kōhanga reo whānau developed the following recommendation:

  • The whānau continue to seek support and guidance to improve the learning programme and kōhanga reo operations.

When is ERO likely to evaluate the kōhanga reo again?

The next ERO evaluation of Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Hunga Ririki will be in three years.
