ERO’s final report in the Te Whāriki series summarises the findings of previous reports and includes the last two focus areas for the curriculum – how services decide ‘what learning matters here’ and how well they were developing learning-focused partnerships with parents and whānau.

The main findings of the evaluation are that 1) in half of the services surveyed, leaders and kaiako were not yet focused on deciding ‘what learning matters here’ (i.e. how the curriculum should be applied locally) as they implemented Te Whāriki; and 2) in most of the services, leaders and kaiako had positive relationships with parents and whānau, but these were not always learning-focused partnerships.
