Munch & Move provides early childhood educators with a fantastic opportunity to obtain high quality training.
Training for long day care, preschools, occasional care services and family day care services
Munch & Move has been providing training to the early childhood education and care sector for over 10 years! Training is offered free to early childhood educators and service leaders working in NSW long day care, preschool, occasional care and family day care services. Services who complete training have access to a range of Munch & Move resources and are supported by a Munch & Move Support Officer from their Local Health District to implement the Munch & Move program. For family day care, this support is provided to the service provider (previously scheme).
Munch & Move eLearning program training!
In April 2019, Munch & Move launched new eLearning program training! This training contains videos, interactive activities and reflective practice questions which will provide educators with the knowledge, skills and resources to embed healthy eating and physical activity into their service. The training is self-paced (on average, it takes approximately 3 hours) and can be completed over multiple occasions.
The training is also supported by a forum where educators can share their experiences implementing Munch & Move and learn practical tips from other educators across NSW. The forum is moderated by training and development officers and early childhood education experts from the Early Childhood Training and Resource Centre.

PLEASE NOTE: On 30th November 2020, the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) announced that all accredited Professional Development endorsements have been cancelled following an internal review. NSW Health will work to re-submit for endorsement of the Munch & Move eLearning Program Training once applications open in 2021.
For eLearning participants who complete the Training from 1st December 2020 to 5th February 2021, 3 hours of professional development will be added to educator eTAMS accounts. While these 3 hours will not be recorded as NESA Registered PD, they will still count towards maintenance requirements. We will provide further updates in the coming months, but please continue to include your Teacher Accreditation number in your account if you are working towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
In the meantime, please refer to the NESA website for more details: https://educationstandards.nsw.edu.au/wps/portal/nesa/teacher-accreditation/professional-development/pd-update.
