Under 5s

 Sport Waitakere are offering Early Childhood Educators (ECE)  the opportunity to learn more about the physical literacy approach through Funskills. Funskills provides teachers with professional development to ensure that they have an understanding of physical literacy alongside role model delivery to the children.  Previous research has shown this to be a hugely successful model in helping teachers to ensure that the children in their centers become more physically active.
