Children need to be engaged in different types of movement and physical activities. This webinar will explore the so-called “kinetic scale”, which outlines the range of different types of movement patterns (balance, sensory processing, proprioception, power, coordination, and control) young children need to be engaging with to support their holistic development. Gill Connell will discuss why it is important for children to have a well-balanced “diet” of movement opportunities and how early childhood and early primary teachers can provide activities and opportunities for children to engage in different types of movement.
