“You may not be aware that recently the Government has agreed to paying all Kindergarten teachers pay parity with primary and secondary school teachers. Unfortunately, the teachers at Country Kids are not classed as Kindergarten teachers although we still have to have the same qualifications to be certified under the early childhood council and work with the same curriculum. We feel very frustrated, as do all early childhood educators, that the Government has made this decision. Therefore there is a petition circulating to address this and we would appreciate your support by signing this.”
Many thanks! J
Whenuakite Country Kids is a place where children connect with their communities, are nurtured into forming strong relationships and learn respect and acceptance of all who learn and play in their environments.
Country kids is a rural, not for profit, community based centre.
We are surrounded by nature and therefore our curriculum is inspired by the nature that surrounds us and the many outdoors experiences that children and whanau experience.
We pride ourselves on ensuring that everyone has a voice in our centre, being inclusive of all children's families and whanau culture, religion, socio-economic backgrounds, interests and individual needs. Our curriculum reflects such diversity.
Our curriculum is underpinned by Te Whāriki: He whāriki mātauranga mō ngā mokopuna o Aotearoa Early childhood curriculum. (MOE, 2017)
We believe that tamariki learn best through feeling loved and accepted in a nurturing and secure environment that reflects their culture, language and identity.
