Partnership with whanau Maori in early childhood services

This evaluation focused on how early education services work in partnership with the families (whanau) of Maori children. Findings are summarized in two parts: (1) an overview of the proportion of services that showed effective relationships with whanau; and (2) the themes of effective partnership. Overall, findings indicate that Maori children's language, culture, and identity are not being valued and acknowledged enough to reflect a genuine partnership. Recommendations include providing professional development to educators to improve the quality of relationships with whanau Maori.
