Essential Physical Development: Promoting physical development in children, breaking cycles of inactivity and combating obesity

Please note: Due to the current restrictions we are unable to bring this course to you as a full day, face to face event. It will instead be run over 2 online sessions.

SESSION OVERVIEW: Physical movement does not just develop the physical abilities of a child but creates neural networks underpinning every other aspect of development. This unique course highlights the profound importance of physical movement as a foundation for a broad spectrum of development from communication and language to emotional well-being and healthy brain growth. The course also showcases neurologically rich activities to support children to reach their potential and looks at the catastrophic effect of sedentary childhood behaviours. A significant number of our children do not move sufficiently during childhood and this course shows us how we can engage and inspire those children. Introducing brand new theories and methods combined with a wealth of practical knowledge this thought-provoking course is an invaluable introduction to this vital area of learning.

This course will be delivered via two online sessions – for dates and details please see next tab.
