Early Childhood

Te Kura’s early childhood education service is a free, individualised programme for children aged two to six years old. It is designed by registered early childhood teachers who are based in Wellington.

Our teachers work in partnership with your whānau using the New Zealand early childhood curriculum, Te Whāriki, to create and develop an individual programme of learning for your child.

Resources

If you are a New Zealand based whānau you will receive a resource box on enrolment with supplementary boxes to continue your learning termly.

The equipment required for each module will be identified where required.

Ideas and information
