Physical Development, Health and Safety Standards Module Training
Physical activity is natural for young children. Including physical activity in early childhood classrooms will help children remain physically fit later in life. Active children are healthier children. Health and safety go hand in hand with physical development and activity. In this interactive session, participants will actively explore physical development, health and safety. They will see how all three are connected and will lead to happy children and healthier adults. Through hands-on activities, participants will gain practical ideas that will allow children to develop motor skills in appropriate ways, increase children’s capacity for learning and promote social well-being as well as physical and mental health.
