2 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Ki Tāmaki Rāwhiti ki te taha o te kura o Tāmaki Rāwhiti, ki Ōtara i Tāmaki-makau-rau. I te tau 2018, i whakahaere anōtia te kōhanga reo whai muri i te whakatā mō ngā marama e ono, heoi, he whānau hou, he kaiako hou hoki i nāianei. Ahakoa te tokoiti o ngā tamariki ki te kōhanga reo i tēnei wā tonu, tokowaru anō ngā tamariki kei te rārangi tatari ka tīmata ki te kōhanga reo ā kō kō ake nei.

3 Ngā Whakaaturanga

Kua haere tonu ngā mahi a te whānau ki te whakatutuki i ngā take i whakaraupapahia ai ki te pūrongo o mua a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga. Kua whakatakotohia ngā tukanga e whakaemi ai i ngā aromatawai a ngā tamariki. Ka whakamahi ngā kaimahi i ngā pūkete e whakatakoto ana i ngā tauira mahi a ngā tamariki. Ka whakahāngaitia aua tauira mahi ki ngā mahere o te hōtaka, ā, ka tāutu ngā pūrongo ahu whakamua i tēnā e ākona ana e ngā tamariki. Kei te tau ngā tamariki ki te taiao o tō rātou kōhanga reo.

Kei te pai haere te whakahaeretanga o ngā kaimahi. I tēnei wā, kotahi te kaimahi ki te kōhanga reo. Kua whakaritea ngā tuhinga tūranga mahi katoa e tika ana. Kua tīmatahia te arohaehae i te kaimahi, ā, ka toro atu hoki ki te tautoko ngaio e tika ana hei hāpai i te kaiako ki tōna tūranga.

Ngā Whakaritenga Matua ka Whai Ake

He wāhanga matua tonu o ngā whakahaeretanga o te kōhanga reo e whakatutuki tonuhia ana e te whānau me ngā kaimahi.

Me tahuri wawe ki ngā mahi e pā ana ki te arotake o roto. Kei te mārama te whānau, ko te pakari o ngā tukanga arotake o roto ka hāpai ake i a rātou ki te whakapakari i te whakahaeretanga whānui tonu o te kōhanga reo. Ko te whakarite i tētahi pūnaha whakahaere tari tētahi kaupapa matua. Kāhore ngā āhuatanga matua o ngā whakahaeretanga me ngā rārangi wā e āta aroturukitia ana, e āta whakatutukihia ana hoki.

Ahakoa he wawata ō te whānau mō te kōhanga reo mō meāke nei, kāhore anō rātou kia whakawhanake i tētahi mahere rautaki ka hāpai i a rātou ki te ahu whakamua me te whakatutuki haere i ā rātou kaupapa matua o te pae tawhiti. Ka whai hua hoki te whānau mā te arotake i tā rātou tūtohinga i runga i Ngā Pou e Whā me Te Whāriki a Te Kōhanga Reo.

Me titiro ki ngā kaupapa here me ngā tukanga, inarā, me āta whakarite i te hāngaitanga o ngā kaupapa here matua ki Te Ture Oranga Tamariki o 2014. He mea nui, kia toro atu te whānau ki te tautoko o waho, kia mārama ai rātou ki te whai pānga me te whai pūtaketanga o te ture, ā, ka hāpai anō hoki tēnā i a rātou ki te whakahou ake i ngā kaupapa here.

Ko te aromātai hōtaka tētahi wāhanga hei whakawhanake. Me whai tautoko ngā kaimahi hei whakapiki i tō rātou māramatanga me tō rātou āheinga ki te whakatinana i ngā aromātai hōtaka e whai pūtake ai. Kāhore te hōtaka akoranga e āta aroturukitia ana kia whai hua ai, kia haere tonu ai hoki te whakapai tonutanga.

4 Ngā wāhanga kāhore e tutuki ana e ai ki te ture

I tāutuhia e Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga ngā wāhanga kāhore e tutuki ana e ai ki te ture. Kia tutukihia ai e te whānau o te kōhanga reo ā rātou herenga ā-ture, me tahuri rātou ki te:

  • whakarite i tētahi tukanga aromātai o roto ka haere tonu i ia te wā, hei hāpai i te kōhanga reo ki te whakapūmau me te whakapai ake i te kounga o ngā whakaritenga mā ngā tamariki

5 Te Taunakitanga

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

  • mahi te whānau o te kōhanga reo ki te taha o te purapura me ngā kaimahi o te tari ā-rohe o te Poari Matua o Ngā Kōhanga Reo, ki te whakatutuki i ngā take i tāutuhia ai ki tēnei pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga.

Hei ā hea Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga aromātai anō ai i te kōhanga reo?

Ka whakahaere anō Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i te aromātai whai muri o Te Kōhanga Reo ki Tāmaki Rāwhiti i roto i te kotahi tau.

1 Background

Introduction

A supplementary evaluation is undertaken at the discretion of the Chief Review Officer of 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:

  • planning and evaluation – including administration systems, internal evaluation, children’s assessment and programme evaluation, strategic planning, and personnel matters

  • and other issues identified during the course of the review.

2 Context

Te Kōhanga Reo o Ki Tāmaki Rāwhiti is located next to East Tāmaki School in Ōtara, Auckland. In 2018, the kōhanga reo re-emerged after a six-month recess with new whānau and a new kaiako. Although the current number of children at the kōhanga reo is low, there is a waiting list of eight children who will begin in the very near future.

3 Findings

Planning and Evaluation

The whānau has continued to address areas of concern outlined in the previous ERO report. Processes to gather children’s assessments are in place. Kaimahi use portfolios that collate samples of children’s work. The samples of work are aligned to the programme planning, and progression reports identify what children are learning. Children are comfortable in their kōhanga reo environment.

Personnel management is improving. The kōhanga reo currently employ one kaimahi. All relevant employment documentation is in place. The appraisal of the kaimahi has been initiated and relevant professional support will be sought to support kaiako in her role.

Key Next Steps

There are key areas of kōhanga reo operations that whānau and kaimahi continue to address.

Internal review requires immediate action. The whānau understand that robust internal review processes will assist them to strengthen the overall management of the kōhanga reo. The establishment of an efficient administration system remains a priority. Key aspects of operations and timelines are not well monitored and met.

While the whānau have aspirations for the future of the kōhanga reo, they have not yet developed a strategic plan that will support them to work towards and achieve their long-term priorities. The whānau would also benefit from reviewing their charter against Ngā Pou e Whā and Te Whāriki a Te Kōhanga Reo.

Policies and procedures require attention, in particular ensuring key policies align to the Vulnerable Children’s Act 2014. It is important that whānau access external support to understand the relevance and purpose of the Act to assist them in the update of the policies.

Programme evaluation remains an area for development. Support is required for kaimahi to increase their understanding and ability to implement meaningful programme evaluation. The learning programme is not well monitored for its effectiveness and ongoing improvement.

4 Areas of non-compliance

Overview

ERO identified areas of non-compliance. In order for the kōhanga reo whānau to meet compliance requirements they need to:

  • establish an ongoing process of internal evaluation to help maintain and improve the quality of practice for children
    [Regulation 47 (Early Childhood Services) Regulations 2008; GMA6 Licensing Criteria for Kōhanga Reo affiliated with Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust 2008]

  • ensure kaimahi evaluate the Te Kōhanga Reo curriculum to provide positive learning experiences for children
    [Regulation 43 (Early Childhood Services) Regulations 2008; C7-9 Licensing Criteria for Kōhanga Reo affiliated with Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust 2008]

  • review and update policies and procedures to ensure that appropriate child protection and behaviour management strategies align to the Vulnerable Children’s Act 2014 are met and maintained for the emotional and physical wellbeing of all children.
    [Regulation 46 (Early Childhood Services) Regulations 2008; HS31 Licensing Criteria for Kōhanga Reo affiliated with Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust 2008]

5 Recommendation

ERO and the kōhanga reo whānau developed the following recommendation:

  • That kōhanga reo whānau work with the purapura and the kaimahi from the local Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust office to address the concerns identified in this ERO report.

When is ERO likely to evaluate the kōhanga reo again?

The next ERO evaluation of Te Kōhanga Reo ki Tāmaki Rāwhiti will be within one year.
