Comments from some participants who attended live on the day:


  • Amazing to get an insight into philosophy and practice and to gain a deeper understanding of authentic Maori view within education. Authenticity and passion!
  • This was a powerful workshop, great tools for combining many of the things we need to do – Internal Evaluation, Planning, Inquiry and Professional Growth Cycle.  The Roskill South Kaiako made this all very clear in their presentation.
  • It was fantastic. I learnt sooooo much and I can definitely make a huge shift in my practice, thank you so much.
  • I loved Anita’s workshop about Infants and Toddler, sharing about her center, it is beautiful and homey. It was lovely to see the some short videos on how children are playing/exploring loose parts and obstacles too. The environment is very important for this age group when we write learning stories ❤️ 
  • Sincerely, all of today’s presenters were very engaging and spoke very genuine and that made for a very connecting conference.
  • The international flavour and respect shown across various nationalities for each other
  • Thanks for the organisation and time you and the speakers put into this incredible day   I think we all will have laughed and cried and shared and grown together on that journey.  We were not able to be face to face yet I felt so connected to everyone.  Kia Ora   Aroha nui 
  • Thank you very much to all involved for a very enjoyable, stimulating conference. I look forward to watching the workshops I have missed and sharing some of my new found ideas and knowledge with my teaching team”
  • Wow to see these wahine toa – whose readings I devoured as a student – was so inspiring – what sensational meaningful mahi. Ka mau te wehi.
  • With full of respect and awe… thank you for this super conference!
  • Thank you for a very enriching conference with great speakers telling their stories and experience. Most enjoyable and learned lots of questions to think and reflect on.
  • Thank you for putting together such a high quality and professionally managed event, yet still retaining the good old kiwi warm and relaxed atmosphere. Loved it!
  • Amazing to hear others journeys and to be revitalized in energy after so many challenges in ECE. So many barriers which often forces us as kaiako to lose our passion and fight…. I am so humbled to share in the amazing knowledge, aroha, passion and dedication of all those that contributed today. Amazing , inspirational, heartwarming, uplifting, gives me enlightenment and replenished my soul as a kaiako and as a European Maori Wahine. As a person, a spirit, a peice of the wonderful world of Early Childhood Care and Education which is my life, my purpose, my soul, I am thankful for you all ! 100%
