Learning Te Reo with PORSE childcare
Caring touch: Yvonne Harding with Le Trae and Brooklyn.
Papakura s Yvonne
Harding is a firm be-
liever that in teaching
the pre-school children
in her care to learn,
value and understand
their Maori culture, they
will grow up with self-
confidence and a sense of
The PORSE in-home
educator delights in see-
ing the youngsters in her
care sing along to songs
in Te Reo, and to use the
words they ve just learn-
ed in their everyday
To me it s like a beau-
tiful journey you have
with these children,
Yvonne says. And with
each child you get, it s a
different journey every
time. I love it.
She has been working
in childcare for a decade
and has been with
PORSE for six years.
Yvonne, 57, is a strong
advocate of the organis-
ation. It s given her the
opportunity to be self-
employed in a field that
she is passionate about,
as well as the flexibility
that comes from working
for yourself -- but more
importantly she has the
chance to teach children
about her culture.
Yvonne now hopes to
encourage other Maori
interested in early child-
hood education to con-
sider the opportunities
presented by PORSE.
Maori out there who
are, or want to be, early
should contact PORSE or
even ask to speak with
me and I ll talk to them
about how good this job
is, she says.
Educators work along-
side parents to develop
the programme they feel
is appropriate for their
child. Yvonne cares for
two Maori children, and
says their mums and
dads are thrilled their
children are learning
about their heritage at
such a young age.
The latest project that
Yvonne worked on with
her youngsters was
Matariki, the Maori New
Year. We did the stars,
the moon and weather
I made mobiles with
them and books for
them. The last thing on
my list for this Matariki
is the baking. We re
going to do star cookies,
cookies as kumara is the
main vegetable harvest-
ed in Matariki season,
the dedicated carer
It s been a lot of fun
for me and the kids!
