Active for Life: Developmentally Appropriate Movement Programs for Young Children (Paperback)

Book Description
Most preschoolers love vigorous play, but research shows that they may not continue to be active if they lack a foundation of skills. Early childhood educators need to ensure that children learn the movement skills necessary to keep them active and healthy throughout childhood and beyond. Active For Life: Developmentally Appropriate Movement Programs for Young Children provides guidance on what high-quality movement programs should include: designing of effective movement environments, components of curriculum, assessment, and more. Unlocking children’s potential in this vital area will inspire a love of physical activity for years to come.
