Supporting Physical Development in Early Childhood (Free online workshop)

The course is designed for adults involved in caring for or educating babies and young children.

As well as being aimed at practitioners in the workforce, the course will give adults, including parents, who are involved in the care and education of babies and young children the opportunity to access evidence-based research.

On this course, you'll discover the importance of physical activity for young children's overall development. As you explore the holistic health and developmental benefits of physical activity, you'll learn low cost, effective ways of ensuring babies and young children meet the 180 minutes per day of recommended activity.

You'll find out how physical activity can improve child mental health and wellbeing, as well as contribute to the prevention of childhood obesity.

The course draws on research and expertise from academics from early childhood, sport and fitness at Public Health England.
