Training for long day care, preschools and occasional care services
Munch & Move training is offered free to NSW long day care, preschools and occasional care service educators. (OOSH educators are not eligible for this training. Family day care service providers please click HERE for your training calendar). Services which have NOT previously been trained in Munch & Move are given priority access to the training.
Training is delivered via a ‘live’ webinar series and consists of 4 sequential modules, each 2 hours in length. You can complete training over 2 weeks (2 sessions per week) or 4 weeks (1 session per week). The training is delivered by the Early Childhood Training and Resource Centre (ECTARC), who are a registered training organisation that specialise in early childhood training and professional development and have been involved with Munch & Move since 2008.
