Teacher Manawatū

“I feel less stressed … and know that the children are happy, engaged, creative people who you can see growing and being successful…”

School Principal Whakatāne

“The opportunity to observe the children in play is the gold as the teachers can tailor the learning/curriculum through the play and that is satisfying/rewarding.  Teachers feel like they are developing the whole child.”

Teacher Auckland

“Play gifts me ākonga who want to be at school … (and) gifts me the time … to teach.” 

Beginning teacher Otago

“The feedback I’ve got from the kids and their parents is that they enjoy coming to school more.”

Year 5-6 teacher Wānaka

 “After more than two years of working with a learning through play approach I have found a new perspective on what teacher enjoyment can look like.”
