Children who grow up in the Foster care system can sometimes miss out on Culture and Cultural activities due to Family & community separation.
It is important for every child to know who they are and where they are from and it is a responsibility we owe, to teach them.
The translation of the words Kohanga Reo is ‘language nest’. This translation relates directly to one of the key objectives of the Kohanga Reo movement – the retention of the Maori language.
Kohanga Reo totally immerses children in Maori language and culture in an effort to promote learning within a context/situation that is relevant to the children and which draws on Maori styles of learning and teaching.
