Change4Life: Active Play and Sleep (Early Years)
Audience / For: Staff working with 0-4 year olds in Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster.
“A really informative and useful training session. We will utilise many of the physical activity ideas shared within our setting”
A free, new Change4Life service is now available in Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster to support children, young people and families most at risk of poor health outcomes to eat well and keep active.
This session forms part of the Change4Life training course and aims to support staff working in early years and community settings to deliver and oversee a range of “active play” opportunities for 0-4 year olds. Participants will learn about the UK physical activity guidelines, the importance of physically active play and how to introduce games and resources that promote active play and keep children moving.
The training will help you to:
- Communicate key messages about physical activity linked to national guidance
- Develop a repertoire of skills to support children to be physically active in appropriate environments
- Provide an understanding of the activity children need to support sensory and motor development for physical and emotional wellbeing, and later learning
- Sign-post children and families to local play and leisure opportunities
