In this session participants will learn about how care provided in group settings should support strong relationships and positive learning experiences. Discussions will take place on how the development in the first 3 years is a complex process, as all areas of development are interdependent and that new accomplishments in any one area enable changes in other areas. Participants will be reminded that every little interaction can have an impact for a lifetime. We will use the NC FELD tool as we focus some attention on cognitive development and explore how children use their senses to construct knowledge about the world around them.

Physical activity fosters normal growth and development, can reduce the risk of various chronic diseases, and can make people feel better, function better, and sleep better. Some health benefits start immediately after activity, and even short bouts of physical activity are beneficial to any age group. In this training participants will learn strategies and activities for:

  • Designing active learning environments
  • Developing movement skills and concepts
  • Planning for repetition and variation of practice of motor skills
  • Facilitating self-regulation, body management, and executive function skills
  • Supporting early learning across all components of curriculum

We will use the NC FELD tool as we focus some attention on health and physical development and explore getting children engaged in active physical play indoors and outdoors.
