The Nursery gym in action at Pen Green

A 20-minute video from Siren Films

With an introduction by Dr Margy Whalley and sensitive narration throughout, this 20-minute video can stimulate discussion about the importance of physical activity and positive risk for young children. Supporting healthy physical development is the primary function of the gym, but children’s spontaneous social interactions and their trial-and-error problem-solving show how this equipment serves all areas of learning.
