Mokopuna Mataara

The Mokopuna Mataara Programme works alongside a number of early childhood centres, Kohanga Reo and Puna Reo to help increase physical activity and improve healthy eating for under 5s.

“It has re-sparked an interest and provided new ideas for kaiako to build on.  Sessions are fun and provide lots of learning opportunities for everyone. Active Mokopuna has complemented and supported our programme planning” (Te Whare Whai Hua Early Learning Centre)

“Physical play opportunities are more in the forefront on our minds now.  We have been using lots of the skill based activities provided during the sessions out in the playground and talking about what other equipment we can purchase to help facilitate even more opportunities” (Central Childcare and Education Centre)

This is a free service which offers the following support:

  • Regular In-Centre Physical Activity and Nutrition Sessions
  • Policy review and Development
  • Resources and Information
  • Fundamental Movement Skill Development
  • Event Planning/Whānau Days
  • Workshops/Professional Development
