Physical activity in the early years

Being in the field of childcare and working as practitioners, it is part of the duty to do what it takes to support babies and children in getting into the habit of being physically active and help with their physical development. This CACHE endorsed program covers the benefits of exercise and mobility for young children. It also explores the national guidelines for physical activity, and strategies for promoting physical activity during the early years. It also includes accessible activities and ideas for children with SEND.

Advantages of this course

By encouraging and creating opportunities for exercise and mobility at an early age, we’re giving children the best possible chance of developing well and becoming healthy adults. This course suggests activities, games, and opportunities for physical development in both indoor and outdoor environments.
Not all children develop at the same rate, and some children have physical disabilities that restrict movement. This course suggests accessible activities and games to keep children with SEN and disabilities active.
Additional activities encourage you to reflect on your learning
There is also suggested extended reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge

On successful completion of this course, you will have the option of purchasing a CACHE certificate. This certificate must not be confused with nationally regulated qualification achievement.
