About this workshop:
Te Whariki states that, “Kaiako in ECE settings weave together the principles and strands, in collaboration with children, parents, whānau and community, to create a LOCAL CURRICULUM for their setting.” (p. 10). There is often a lot of confusion about this. This workshop will explore:
- What is a local curriculum and why is it important?
- What are the steps to developing our local curriculum?
About our facilitator - Sonja Ploeg (InterLEAD)
Sonja has considerable experience in the early childhood sector over the last 20 years including teaching in both community-based preschools and kindergartens. She has a strong knowledge base related to: strengthening and embedding Internal Evaluation and Professional Growth Cycles to promote teacher-led inquiry; growing pedagogical capability and documentation that reflects a localised curriculum; building leadership knowledge and skills to sustain collective leadership and professional community and; developing effective communication strategies to build a positive team culture built on high trust relationships.
A key strength that Sonja brings is in establishing and maintaining authentic professional relationships as she works alongside leaders and teams. Her passion is mentoring others and providing professional learning and development for those who aspire to seek excellence.
