Te Whariki是新西兰教育部提供幼儿课程政策声明的机构。该部在塑造和培育幼儿课程方面扮演重要角色，以帮助早期学习者和教育者扩展知识、能力、技能、个性和身份。Te Whariki儿童早期课程的目标包括授权、整体发展、家庭和社区以及关系(教育部，1996年)。授权旨在了解孩子们如何赋予他们的技能和能力去成长和学习。整体发展旨在展示儿童的整体成长和学习。家庭和社区的目标是扩大儿童的知识和情绪稳定与他们的家庭和社区。人际关系鼓励孩子建立和学习各种不同的人际关系，他们可以在他们的社会联系和互动中使用。Te Whariki课程旨在与人们建立联系，了解儿童的个性、身份和技能。运用不同的教学策略和方法，教师能够激发孩子们的内在技能。在释放了这些技能之后，教师能够根据孩子们的欲望和个性来培养和塑造他们。在Ruby的例子中，它显示了教师们对Te Whariki的目标和原则的回应，这些目标和原则包括授权、整体开发、建立社区和鼓励关系。Ruby和Miller以及她的老师一起去超市的简单旅程对她的存在产生了巨大的影响，因为这展示了她的技能，并帮助她识别周围不同的事物。这些理解与特瓦里基的观点一致。
The Te Whariki is the Ministry of Education in New Zealand providing early childhood curriculum policy statement. This ministry plays an important role in shaping and nurturing early childhood curriculum to help early learners and educators in expanding knowledge, abilities, skills, personality, and identity. The goals of the early childhood curriculum under the Te Whariki include empowerment, holistic development, family and community, and relationships (Ministry of Education, 1996). Empowerment aims to see how children empower their skills and abilities to grow and learn. Holistic development aims to show children's holistic growth and learning. Family and community aims to expand the knowledge and emotional stability of children with their family and community. Relationships encourage children to establish and learn the different kinds of relationships that they can use in their social connection and interaction. The Te Whariki curriculum aims to establish connection with people and understand children's personality, identity, and skills at an early age. Using different teaching strategies and methods, teachers are able to unleash the innate skills of children. After unleashing these skills, the teachers are able to nurturing and mould them according to the desires and personalities of children. In Ruby's case, it shows that the teachers are responding to the goals and principles of Te Whariki in empowering, holistically developing, establishing community, and encouraging relationships. Ruby's simple journey to the supermarket with Miller and her teacher creates a significant impact to her being because it demonstrates her skills and help her identify the different things available around her. These understandings correspond to Te Whariki.
