Early Learning Support
Our co-ordinators develop Early Learning Plans (ELP’s) with families to facilitate and monitor their child’s/tamariki’s participation in ECE services.
We support parents to establish foundations for their child/tamariki in preparation for their transition to school. This transition includes primary school enrolments, pre-entry visits and monitoring of their attendance during the first 12 weeks of starting school. EPF coordinators continue to support children for the first 6 months after enrolling into primary school.
The programme – part of the Ministry of Education’s Engaging Priority Families/Whānau Initiative – targets Maori, Pasifika, low socio-economic families/whānau and migrant families to help them achieve strong, early learning foundations through sustained early childhood education.
