WAVE Resource Centre - CLOSED
In light of COVID-19, we have had to temporarily close the WAVE Resource Centre until we work through advice received regarding cleaning of resources.
Please visit our Links & Downloads section for various online guides, toolkits, websites and programmes to promote healthy environments, including ideas for integrating into curriculum programmes.
WAVE has introduced a new Links & Downloads section which is for kaiako to access various guides, toolkits, websites and programmes to assist your ECE and school in promoting healthy choices and lifestyles and to enable you to incorporate these programmes into your curriculum.
If you need further assistance or more information on these toolkits and programmes, please contact your WAVE Facilitator.
We have also included links as to where you can purchase some of our resources if you wish to do so.
