Te Kōhanga Reo

Kaupapa (principles)

Te Kōhanga Reo was inspired by Kaumatua for the purpose of the restoration and development of te reo (Māori language) me ōna tikanga (customs and practices) within whānau (families)

Pou 1      Te Reo Māori anake

Pou 2      Whānau management

Pou 3       Accountability

Pou 4       Provide for the total well-being of mokopuna and whānau

The 4 Pou will ensure

  • Security of Te Reo Māori me ōna Tikanga
  • Whānau providing a supportive, caring and nurturing environment for mokopuna
  • Whānau protection of kaupapa
  • Whānau sharing of responsibilities, knowledge and skills
  • Greater respect and appreciation of each other
  • Sustainability of the kaupapa Māori
  • Providing a learning environment that encapsulates te ao Māori

What is the cost?
