E Puta! E Noho ki Waho!

These Māori-medium early childhood resources complement more advanced fire-safety resources in te reo Māori that tamariki meet when they start primary school.

These resources for kōhanga reo and puna akoranga have been developed by the New Zealand Fire Service (NZFS), in consultation with Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust, the Ministry of Education, and the Māori liaison firefighter team.

They are aligned with the curricula of Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust and the Ministry of Education.

For kōhanga reo, some key guides are:

  • Te Korowai
  • Te Whāriki a te Kōhanga Reo – Te Whāriki Màtauranga

For puna akoranga, some key guides are:

  • Kei Tua o te Pae: Assessment for Learning Early Childhood Exemplars
  • Te Whāriki – He Whāriki Mātauranga mō ngā Mokopuna o Aotearoa: Early Childhood Curriculum
  • Te Whatu Pōkeka: Kaupapa Māori Assessment for Learning Early Childhood Exemplars

The Màui-tinei-ahi resources for kòhanga reo and puna akoranga follow these guidelines.

To request a Māui-tinei-ahi Māori liaison firefighter visit to your kōhanga reo or puna akoranga, contact your nearest fire station or email
