New Zealand’s early childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki, was updated in April, 2017. Te Whāriki (2017) reflects the changes in theory, practice and early learning contexts that have occurred over the last 20 years. ERO is undertaking a series of evaluations focused on the implementation of Te Whāriki in early learning services from mid-2017 until the end of 2019.
ERO’s national reports are intended to provide insight into system settings, influence system improvement, and identify what works in schools and early learning services and showcase effective practice. ERO values your feedback on our national reports. Please fill out our 2 minute reader survey.
A two-page summary of the report is also available.Download the complete summary
