Defining Your Local Curriculum

Drag to resize
The term “Local curriculum” has recently entered ECE discourse. It refers to the process of establishing and implementing a teaching and learning environment and programme that is reflective of your services priorities and foci for learning, drawn from Te Whāriki. In a nutshell, it is how you bring Te Whāriki to life in your service.

Your local curriculum will be unique to the context of your service and reflective of your learning community’s values. Your local curriculum will also be adaptable and responsive to what is currently important to the service, teachers, children and whānau.

This webinar includes;
  • Revision of key aspects of Te Whāriki so these can be drawn on in the design of your local curriculum
  • Describing and explaining how to define your service’s priorities and valued learning
  • Exploring ways to create alignment between your priorities and practice
