Sponsored by Exchange.
Roughhousing, rough and tumble play, play fighting, horseplay…we have different names for it but all early childhood teachers have seen it: that bone-jarring, boisterous, often frightening playstyle young children seem to love, and crave. Join this webinar to learn the top reasons why young children need to play this way and how it supports every aspect of healthy development. Learn what policies and procedures help support Big Body Play in group care, as well as how to prepare for and supervise it both indoors and outside. Learn how to document the effectiveness of Big Body Play and share its importance with families.
Participants in this session will learn to:
1. Increase awareness of the role Big Body Play in young children’s healthy development.
2. Implement policies that will help support Big Body Play in group care settings.
3. Prepare environments both indoors and outdoors that support Big Body Play.
4. Demonstrate appropriate and supportive supervision while children play this way.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
