Poipoia Te Mokopuna


Ngā Whakamarama  |  Service Description

Poipoia te Mokopuna is delivered through a range of interactive mediums, including Puna Ako (homebased) and Puna Puawai (group based).

We support whānau to create learning environments and form connections in their communities:
  • We encourage and support whānau to embrace Te Ao Māori through purakau and connect them to korero that will promote early learning from a Māori world view in the home.

  • Home visits provide education and support.

  • Group sessions that are hands on interactive and fun, encouraging practical use of learning in the home.

This waiata is a great way to connect with pēpi while soothing him/her to sleep.


Moe moe pēpi, moe moe rā

Ka hoki mai a māmā ākuanei

Moe moe pēpi, moe moe rā,

Ka hoki mai a pāpā ākuanei.
