    You will see on your computer or tablet screen that there are eight menu items at the top of any page.

    On your phone these menu items can be found by selecting the three lines icon on the left of your screen.

    On your computer or tablet if you roll over these menu items you can see what pages are underneath.

    On your phone the same happens when you select a menu item. If there is an arrow to the right of the menu item, you can rollover that to see the pages in that section. You can do the same on your phone by selecting a menu subsection and selecting the arrow to the right.

    The menus only show you two layers and there could be more pages to explore on that topic, so select a page and see where it takes you. For example, following the Talking together, Te kōrerorero link takes you to many pages under Talk information and Talk tools about supporting oral language development.

    You can always tell where you are on the site by the line at the top of each page. You can select any one of the items in this line to take you back up a level or levels on the site.

    On the site there are a number of ways to find links to other pages or documents. You can select words that are underlined when you hover over them. You can select the arrow in the round circles. Or you can select the coloured card.

    Some pages have content inside collapsible boxes. Select the plus symbol in the circle to open the box and find the content.

    Some pages or sections also have underlined titles so you can easily jump to the content you want to read on that page.

    Take the time to explore the site and find all the resources that have been carefully created to support you.

    Te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōna te ngāhere; te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga nōna te ao.

    The bird who partakes of the miro berry, owns the forest; the bird who partakes of education, owns the world.

    Kia ora koutou, talofa lava, mālō e lelei, kia orāna, kumusta, nau mai haere mai and welcome to Te Whāriki Online. Here you can find all sorts of resources to support you with implementing in your service Te Whāriki: He whāriki mātauranga mō ngā mokopuna o Aotearoa Early childhood curriculum.

    let’s take a look at the content and resources available under the different menu items. The first menu item is the main page Te Whāriki: He whāriki mātauranga mō ngā mokopuna o Aotearoa, Early childhood curriculum. New content on the site can often be found in the ‘have you seen’ section on this page.

    Towards the bottom of this first page is a direct link to the page where you can download the curriculum document. There is also the background story, pūrākau about Te Whāriki (2017) and the link to the newsletters sent out quarterly that keep you up-to-date with the new content on the site.

    There are also many eBooks, and audio files in five Pacific languages. Mana reo, Communication is where you can find these Pacific dual language books for kaiako and families to share with children to grow all children’s oral language and literacy.

    The next menu item is Te aromatawai, Assessment for learning.
