Developmental Movement Play

Physical developmental is one of the prime areas, this type of play not only supports children’s gross and fine motor skills but supports strong brain development which in turn enhances language and communication development, early reading etc etc.

A very practical half day session – good fun and lots of ideas of how to further develop good practice in your setting, room or children’s centre.


Course Aims and Objectives:

A basic introduction to the importance of movement play in the brain development of young children. 
At the end of the session practitioners will have:

  • The basic theory of the importance of movement play
  • A deeper understanding of why it is so important
  • A range of practical activities to share with colleagues, children and parents
  • Some ideas of how to embed movement play as part of daily provision

In addition it will support practitioners in Children's Centres to deliver the Developmental Movement Play element of the Integrated Care Pathway. 


Practitioners must wear loose and comfortable clothing as this is a very practical session with some simple movement activities.
