Portfolios at Kiddy Winks
The Ministry of Education request that we, as educators, “implement curriculum and assessment practices which enhance children’s sense of themselves as capable people and competent learners”.
To this end we provide each child with a personal portfolio as a record of their time with us at Kiddy Winks.
Portfolios contain a collection of art work, writings, photos and stories about what they are learning. Stories are based on observations by staff and will give reference to the aims and goals of Te Whariki, the Early Childhood curriculum.
We encourage involvement by parents, whanau and the wider community as research shows that including families and communities in this process can only add value to a child’s early learning experiences.
