Nurturing Healthy Futures: Blossom Preschool&'s Commitment toWellness and Wellbeing

In today’s fast-paced world, fostering a culture of health and wellness from the earliest years is more important than ever. At Blossom Preschool, we are not just committed to nurturing the minds of our young learners; we also prioritize their physical well-being. Proudly, Blossom Preschools are certified Munch and Move approved centres, a testament to our dedication to promoting healthy eating habits and active living among children. This initiative reflects our holistic approach to education, where nutrition and physical activity play pivotal roles in children’s development. Here's a closer look at how our Munch and Move approval guides our programs and why it’s crucial for your child’s growth.

Munch and Move: A Foundation for Healthy Habits

The Munch and Move program is a comprehensive initiative designed to support the health, learning, and well-being of young children by promoting physical activity, healthy eating, and reduced small screen time. As Munch and Move approved centres, Blossom Preschools implement this framework to ensure that our young learners receive the best start in life through positive lifestyle habits.

Nurturing Healthy Eaters

Our commitment to the Munch and Move program means that we place a strong emphasis on nurturing healthy eaters. We educate our children about the importance of nutritious foods through engaging, hands-on experiences that make learning about healthy eating fun and interactive. Our curriculum includes:

  • Interactive Nutrition Lessons: Children learn about the benefits of various food groups through activities that are tailored to be fun and engaging, helping them understand the value of making healthy food choices.

  • Practical Food Preparation: Involving children in the preparation of healthy snacks and meals fosters a sense of independence and a deeper appreciation for nutritious foods. It’s an empowering experience that aligns with the Munch and Move ethos.

Fostering Active Lifestyles

Physical activity is another cornerstone of the Munch and Move program, and at Blossom Preschools, we ensure that our children enjoy a variety of physical activities daily. Our programs are designed to:

  • Promote Daily Physical Activity: Through structured and unstructured play, children engage in activities that develop their motor skills, coordination, and overall physical fitness.

  • Encourage Outdoor Play: We believe in the importance of outdoor play for physical health and connection with nature. Our outdoor spaces provide safe and stimulating environments for children to explore and move.



Partnering with Families

Achieving the goals of the Munch and Move program is a collaborative effort between our preschools and the families we serve. We work closely with parents and caregivers to extend healthy habits from school to home, providing:

  • Resources and Support: We offer families tips, resources, and recipes to encourage healthy eating and active living at home.

  • Community Events: Regular events and workshops are designed to engage the whole family in activities that promote a healthy lifestyle, reinforcing the Munch and Move principles.


Being Munch and Move approved centres, Blossom Preschools are at the forefront of integrating health and wellness into early childhood education. Our holistic approach ensures that every child benefits from a balanced focus on nutrition, physical activity, and cognitive development. By choosing Blossom Preschool, you’re choosing a path of health, vitality, and well-being for your child, laying the foundation for a lifetime of healthy habits.

At Blossom Preschool, our Munch and Move approval is more than just a certification; it’s a reflection of our commitment to nurturing well-rounded, healthy, and happy children. Join us on this journey toward a healthier future for our next generation.
