We are pleased to announce that we will be participating in the Heart Foundation’s Healthy Heart Award for
Early Childhood Education: Tohu Manawa Ora Kōhungahunga.
This innovative programme has supported hundred of Early Childhood Education Services to implement a
heart healthy environment – and now it is our turn! The healthy changes we make will be acknowledged by
the Heart Foundation’s Healthy Heart Award.
The Healthy Heart Award for Early Childhood Education programme emphasises the positive impact of early
childhood nutrition and physical activity on children’s current and future health and development.
Establishing healthy habits in early childhood years provides a foundation of lifelong health and well-being.
We trust you will support our involvement in this exciting programme, as your assistance and contribution will
help us to achieve our goal. Please look out for our updates!

Our childcare centre in Upper Hutt has just wrapped up an extensive study of animals and animal care. We concluded the project by creating a model zoo using a wide range of materials to build the animals and their environment:
We recently took delivery of 18 cubic metres of bark and wood chips to give a fresh, deep, safe covering to our large outdoor play area.
We love the natural look and feel of bark chips, and it’s great to have a new deep cover around climbing equipment, swings etc.
We have just added a new page providing more background on the Reggio Emilia teaching approach we use at Smiley Faces Educare.
