The organisation
2020 has been a year of transformational change for Sport Waikato as they drive forward Moving Waikato, a strategy to grow participation in play, active recreation, and sport in the Waikato region. We are committed to a ‘one team’ approach which supports, develops, and enables one another as a collective and collaborative team to achieve a united vision and strategy.
The role
In this newly created role, the early childhood sector lead will work alongside the owners and managers of targeted early childhood centres and koohanga reo to embed physical activity policy and practices into their business to benefit the Waikato region’s tamariki. You will influence these owners and managers to unpack the connection between brain development and physical activity and the importance of this connection to the overall wellbeing of a child from an early age.
As the early childhood sector lead you will be responsible for leading a small team tasked with guiding and developing the capability of educators to strengthen physical activity kaupapa in an early childhood school setting.
The person
Sport Waikato are on the hunt for an expert in child development (fundamental movement and play). Ideally you will have experience working in or alongside childhood centres and be confident with your ability to plan, manage and prioritise multiple projects at one time. Because you will be tasked with designing and facilitating professional learning and development opportunities, it’s important that you have strong attention to detail and the drive to see a project through.
If you are influential and can connect with a wide range of people within the education sector, then this is the role for you!
