Presented by Child Care at Its Best

Physical play is an essential part of early childhood development. This workshop concentrates on the movement and perceptual-motor skills that young children are motivated to learn and practice. With adult support, these skills set the stage for lifelong health and well-being.

The following areas, drawn from the California Preschool Learning Foundations, which will be discussed in the context of family childcare:

  • Fundamental movement skills, such as balance
  • Perceptual-motor skills, such as spatial awareness
  • Active physical play, outdoors and indoors
