"Physical development sits at the heart of wellbeing, learning and development - and it creates school readiness."
- Jan White
Jan White’s latest book, Every child a mover inspires us to support physical activity in children. She explores the different types of movement that children crave, and gives many ideas for creating a "movement-rich environment and culture."
Children develop through moving, particularly outdoors. Everything from balance and coordination to eyesight, handwriting, emotional development and "school readiness" is informed by the amount of physical activity a child engages in.
Every child a mover will help you look at your outdoor and indoor environment with new eyes, and find ways to provide rich opportunities for children to develop their full potential.
