What other ECE kaiako say about He Pātaka Reo

  • “The new vocab was highly relevant to my teaching and the early childhood environment and will be used frequently. I am gaining confidence in pronunciation and am beginning to see links between new phrases and previous learning.

  • “I love this course, I am able to do it in my own time, I can record each lesson and play it back, delete and play again until I am confident in the way I pronounce the words. I can use the teaching in my centre and it is helping the whole team.”

  •  “You have given a wealth of valuable resources which can be woven meaningfully into our kindergarten's day to day curriculum.”
