Hold a Big Heart Day at your early learning service in February 2018 and help the Heart Foundation fight New Zealand’s single biggest killer – heart disease.

Big Heart Day is about coming together with your children, staff and whānau to celebrate what it means to look after your heart.  

Holding a Big Heart Day is fun and easy - be as creative as you like. By taking part, you’ll go in the draw to win a special visit at your centre from our mascot, Hearty! 

If you’re already taking part in the Healthy Heart Award, you can use your Big Heart Day to help with the Collaboration strand and engage your parents and whānau in fun activities around healthy eating and physical activity.
