About this learning opportunity

Play in the early years provides the foundation for healthy, active living. In fact, early gross motor ability is associated with cognitive, social and emotional development. Purposefully choosing activities and creating opportunities that encourage play and develop physical literacy establishes the basis for life-long participation. 

This interACTIVE session will focus on teaching fundamental movement skills and creating an environment that supports confidence and fun. You will also leave with the knowledge of resources and tools to add more play into your programs.

This session is being offered on a cost recovery basis.
