Establishing a certificated puna kōhungahunga (Māori language playgroup)
"Te piko o te māhuri Tera te tipu o te rakau - The bow in the branch is indicative of how the tree will grow."
'Establishing a Certificated Puna Kōhungahunga' is a guide for whānau who want to set up a puna kōhungahunga.
Ministry of Education staff are available to work with whānau to set up a puna kōhungahunga and to get certification. Their focus is on quality early childhood education programmes for children.
If you are interested in setting up a certificated puna kōhungahunga contact your local Ministry of Education office.
