socio - cultural and reciprocal practices

Rosebank Early Childhood Centre Curriculum is based on Te Whaariki, the National Early Childhood Curriculum  Framework. Its Principles, Strands, Goals and Learning Outcomes, alongside Kei tua o te Pae, provide the basic framework and guidelines for planning, assessment and evaluating children's learning and development.

Rosebank Early Childhood Centre Curriculum utilises sources of theories, such as Bronfenbrenner's  Ecological theory and Vygotsky's Socio-cultural theoretical perspectives, as the basis for teachers' knowledge and practices in the implementation of all centre programmes. Alongside these theories we include our Muagagana Faasamoa or proverbial sayings and cultural values which drive our curriculum emphasis.

The aim of the curriculum as emphasised in Te Whaariki  is for the children in our care "to grow up as confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society".

The  curriculum is designed to enhance and empower our children's learning and development. It fosters children's own experiences, knowledge, skills, attitudes, needs, interests, and views of the world within the centre's settings.

Our learning programme supports our children's family and community yearly events by celebrating them, and incorporating the events into our weekly planned learning experiences and activities. For instance, the Holy Season of Easter, children learn and role-play the 'Passion of Christ' biblical story. Parents and families were invited to join us and witness their children's performance. A range of significant learning and skills are embedded in these experiences which children learn while playing and having fun when they dramatise their roles in various activities. Te Whaariki Principles and Strands are being interconnecte, explored and visiable.

Our children's health is one crucial element of Rosebank ECE programme. We work closely with health providers in improving education and health overall for our children.
