This course will help early years practitioners extend the physical activity opportunities available to the under-fives in their care.
Attending this training will help early years practitioners develop a better understanding about the importance of early movement opportunities for the 0-5 age group and raise confidence to organise enabling environments for physical activity for the children in their care.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be equipped with:
an understanding and the importance of physical activity in the early years
the physical activity and sedentary guidelines for early years
skills to adapt their delivery to plan and cater for the needs, interests and developmental stage within groups of children they care for
Previous participants are reporting these new skills revolutionise their practice and are applicable to those who would like to learn more about the importance of physical activity in the early years and how to engage babies and young children in more physically active play.
This course is being part-funded by the School Travel Team at Brighton & Hove City Council, as part of the Sustainable Travel Transition Year project. The team is currently working with many early years settings across the city to actively promote increased levels of physical activity through walking and cycling. The ’Early Movers’ course is part of this work, but will cover all areas of physical activity with the under-5s.
