Whānau are incredibly important for learning because they play a vital role in a child's development and education.

Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Emotional support: A family provides a secure and stable environment for children, which is necessary for their emotional well-being. When children feel supported and loved by their families, they are more likely to be confident and have a positive attitude towards learning.

  2. Learning opportunities: Whānau can provide a range of learning opportunities for children. They can read books together, engage in meaningful conversations, play educational games, and explore new places and experiences.

  3. Reinforcement of learning: Whānau can help reinforce what children learn in school by discussing the topics covered in class, helping with homework, and encouraging children to pursue their interests.

  4. Role models: Whānau can serve as positive role models for children, inspiring them to work hard, pursue their passions, and strive for success.

Overall, Whānau are critical to a child's learning and development, and the more involved and supportive they are, the better-equipped children will be to succeed in school and beyond.
