Professional Development

Why Nurtured at Home provides FREE professional development workshops:

The Ministry of Education’s current focus for professional development in early childhood education is on services being “more responsive to the identity, language and cultural needs of specific communities, particularly Māori and Pasifika.”  Nurtured at Home understands and supports this focus; this is why we are committed to providing free workshops for our Educators and their families on an ongoing basis.

All workshops offered will focus on the needs and interests of Educators and families involved with Nurtured at Home, with language, culture and identity strongly woven throughout.

Educators are carefully selected for their commitment and enthusiasm to providing quality care and education for our preschool children and on-going professional development supports this.  Complemented with the guidance and support from our Visiting Teachers, who are all fully qualified early childhood teachers, and our commitment to providing quality and meaningful professional development for all of our Educators, Nurtured at Home ensures we are all working together to provide the best possible support for our families, whānau and our tamariki.
