Te Whāriki includes two pathways. Te Whāriki: He whāriki mātauranga mō ngā mokopuna o Aotearoa Early childhood curriculum and Te Whāriki a Te Kōhanga Reo.
Te Whāriki a te Kōhanga Reo is an indigenous framework immersed in te reo Māori for Te Kōhanga Reo. Te Whāriki Early Childhood Curriculum is a bicultural framework for early childhood services. They are not translations of each other. Both have equal status and mana in their own right.
