Advisory Group on Early Learning - report

Education Minister Hekia Parata established an Advisory Group on Early Learning in December 2014 to recommend practical ways to ensure all children get the benefits of New Zealand’s world class curriculum frameworks and have consistent teaching and learning from birth to 8 years old.

The Advisory Group has completed its report and made recommendations on how to strengthen the implementation of the early childhood curriculum framework, Te Whāriki, and support the continuity of early learning from early childhood education to school.

The recommendations have been made following input from over 1100 early childhood and school teachers, professional learning and development providers, and education sector organisations.

The Advisory Group’s recommendations will feed into the Ministry of Education’s work programme on early childhood education and the professional learning and development 3 year implementation plan.
