ENGAGE is an evidence-based approach that supports the development of children’s self-regulation skills through intentional play. ENGAGE was developed by Associate Professor Dione Healey (University of Otago), and has been widely researched in Aotearoa.

Now, in collaboration with Methodist Mission Southern and with funding from the Ministry of Education, the programme is now being delivered across Aotearoa in hundreds of early learning services. The widespread roll-out of ENGAGE will have positive outcomes for a huge number of tamariki, equipping them with vital self-regulation skills that are essential to successfully navigating through school and into adulthood.

Jimmy McLauchlan is the Kaiwhakawhanake Pakihi | Chief Development Officer at MMS and is leading the rollout of the ENGAGE programme to 1,830 early learning services over the next four years.
