Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Puna O Te Aroha - 15/12/2016

1 He Whakamārama

He Kupu Whakataki

Ka whakahaeretia tētahi arotake tāpiri i runga o te whakataunga ā te Kaiurungi Whakaturuki Arotake Māori i Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga.

E aromātai ana te arotake tāpiri i te whānuitanga me te whai hua o ngā mahi ā te kōhanga reo ki te whakatutuki i ngā take i whakatakotohia ai i roto i te arotake mātauranga o mua atu i tēnei, me ētahi atu wāhanga rānei kua tāutuhia whai muri o taua arotake.

Ngā Whakataunga mō ngā Whakapuakitanga

Ko tēnei arotake tāpiri i whakaritea i runga o te aromātai o te whakatutukitanga a te whānau i te whakahaeretanga o te kōhanga reo, ki ngā wāhanga i tāutuhia ai e te pūrongo a Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga, i mua atu, me ngā take rānei kua tāutuhia whai muri o taua arotake. Ko ngā whakataunga mō ngā whakapuakitanga e pā ana ki tēnei arotake, ko te titiro ki:

  • te whakamahere me te aromātai, tae atu ki te hauora me te haumaru
  • ētahi atu take i tāutuhia ai i te wā o te arotake.

2 Te Horopaki

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Puna o Te Aroha ki te marae o Ōpeke, ki Waioeka. I te tīmatanga o te tau i tata whakatā te kōhanga reo. I āta hāpai ake Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Waioeka, te whānau, me te hapū kia kore ai te kōhanga reo e kati. Nā te whakatūnga o tētahi komiti hou, me te whakatūnga anō hoki i ētahi kaimahi hou, kua tau te kōhanga reo. Whai muri i te arotake o mua, kua piki ake te tatauranga ki te rārangi ingoa. Ka whakapau kaha ngā kaimahi me te whānau ki te whakapūmau i te tokomaha o ngā tamariki ki te kōhanga reo.

3 Ngā Whakaaturanga

Ka whai hua ngā tamariki nā tētahi hōtaka i āta whakamaheretia ai. Ka whakamahere ngātahi ngā kaimahi, ā, ka tonoa hoki te whānau kia whai wāhi mai. Ka whakaatuhia ngā mahere ā-kaupapa, ā, e mau nei hoki i ngā whakaahua kia noho mōhio ai ngā tamariki me te whānau. Ka hāngai ngā mahi a ngā tamariki e whakaatuhia ai ki ngā mahere. He muramura, he karakara hoki te taiao, ā, he pai te whakaritenga. Kei te mārama ngā kaimahi ki ngā tūhonohono ki waenga i ngā mahere, te aromatawai, me te aromātai i te hōtaka akoranga. 

I tāutu te pūrongo o mua i te maha o ngā wāhanga kāhore e tutuki ana e ai ki te ture. Kua mahi te whānau ki te āta whakatutuki i aua take katoa i hāngai ake ai ki:

  • te moe
  • te tīni kope
  • te akoako hōneatanga ohorere
  • ngā whara me ngā maiki
  • ngā whakatō kano ārai mate
  • te arowhai i ngā āhuatanga mōrearea (i ia rā me ia marama)
  • ngā rongoā (tae atu ki ngā mate pāwera, me te tiaki i ngā tamariki e mau nei i ngā mate whakapoke)
  • te tukanga e pā ana ki ngā amuamu.

Ko te hauora me te haumaru o ngā tamariki tētahi aronga matua a te whānau. Ka whakahaerehia te kōhanga reo hei painga mō ngā tamariki.

Ngā Whakaritenga Matua ka Whai Ake

Whakawhiti kōrero ai ngā kaimahi mō te hōtaka akoranga i ia te wā. Ko te tuhi i aua whakawhitinga kōrero ka hāpaitia e rātou ki te whakapai ake i te kounga, me te aroturuki i te ahu whakamua. E mōhio ana ngā kaimahi ki ngā hua ka pupū ake nā te whakaōkawa i aua whakawhitinga kōrero.

4 Ngā Taunakitanga

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

  • Kia whakapakarihia te aromātai hōtaka
  • Kia whakapakarihia te whakahaeretanga a te whānau, i ngā mahi puta noa i ngā wāhanga katoa.

Te Whakarāpopototanga

E tū ana Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Puna o Te Aroha ki Ōpōtiki. He nui te ahu whakamua a te whānau hou i roto i ngā wāhanga i tāutuhia ai ki te pūrongo o mua. He pai tā rātou mahi ngātahi hei āta whakarite i te kounga o ngā painga mō ngā tamariki, me te ahu whakamua tonu o te kōhanga reo ā meāke nei.

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

Ka arotake anō Te Tari Arotake Mātauranga i Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Puna o Te Aroha i roto i te toru o ngā tau.

1 Background

Introduction

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

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

Terms of Reference

This supplementary review 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 review. The terms of reference for this review are to investigate:

  • Planning and evaluation including health and safety

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

2 Context

Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Puna o Te Aroha is on Opeke Marae at Waioeka. The kōhanga reo was in danger of going into recess earlier in the year. Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Waioeka, whānau, and hapū provided assistance to ensure this did not happen. With the establishment of a new committee and the further appointment of new kaimahi the kōhanga reo is experiencing stability. Since the previous review the roll has increased. Kaimahi and whānau work to maintain consistency in the number of children attending the kōhanga reo.

3 Findings

Children benefit from a well-planned programme. Kaimahi plan together and whānau are invited to contribute. Kaupapa planning is on display and has pictures which support children and whānau to keep informed. Children’s work on display align to the planning. The environment is bright, colourful and well organised. Kaimahi understand the links between planning, assessment and evaluation of the learning programme.

The previous report identified a number of areas of noncompliance. The whānau have worked to successfully address all these concerns which includes the following registers:

  • Sleeping

  • nappy changing

  • emergency evacuation drills

  • Accidents/incidents

  • Immunisation

  • Hazard checks (daily and monthly)

  • Medicines (including allergies and managing children with infectious diseases)

  • Complaints procedure.

Children’s health and safety is a priority for the whānau. The kōhanga reo is managed in the interests of the children.

Key Next Steps

Kaimahi regularly discuss the learning programme. Recording these discussions will assist them to improve the quality and monitor progress. Kaimahi acknowledge the benefits of formalising these discussions.

4 Recommendations

ERO and the kōhanga reo whānau developed the following recommendation:

  • Strengthen programme evaluation

  • whānau management across all areas of operation.

Conclusion

Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Puna o Te Aroha is in Opotiki. The new whānau have made significant progress with the areas identified in the previous report. They are working well together to ensure quality outcomes for children and a positive future for the kōhanga reo.

When is ERO likely to review the kōhanga reo again?

The next ERO review of Te Kōhanga Reo o Te Puna o Te Aroha will be in three years.
