Information for parents, whānau and schools
The aim of this website is to support parents, whānau, early learning services and schools so that children and young people can continue learning at home.
Learning happens in every language. If your home language is a language other than English, use that language when communicating with your child. You can use your home language to talk about activities provided and the activity can be completed in English (or in your home language).

2022 Learning from Home packs
In Term 1 2022, the Ministry is trialling a new set of learning packs. The Learning from Home packs are designed to support learning against rich curriculum themes, drawing on a range of bicultural and multi-cultural contexts. They provide rich learning opportunities across several year groupings, covering multiple curriculum areas, including literacy and numeracy.
Hard copy resource packs
The Ministry’s hard copy learning packs provide materials for ākonga who may not have access to online learning during this time and are there to complement their school’s learning programme. The packs include stationery, reading books (e.g school journals), subject specific learning materials and fun activities. Parent and whānau guidance is also included to support children learning from home.
