This essay is going to discuss and engages in the processes of noticing, recognising and responding to a child’s interest/ learning and well- being of 6 children I observed, focusing on three enriched narratives’. I then shared my narratives with another adult who was responsible for those children. The second section to this assignment is an evaluation about my time at the centre. I am going to reflect on what I have learnt about myself as a teacher and communicator in supporting children’s interest/ learning and well- being. I am then going to evaluate the effectiveness of my teaching practices and documentation. I am also including how Te Whāriki (Ministry of Education, 1996), Kei tua o te Pae (Ministry of Education 2004-2009), and Te Whatu Pokeka (Ministry of Education, 2009) have influenced my teaching practice.
