Completely changed the way that I look at the children in my classroom. Understanding why they move and play in the way they do as child experts just makes so much sense now.

The addition of the movement area into our provision has had a huge impact upon the children. It is the most regularly accessed area and is used by the children in a range of different ways depending upon their own needs and desires.

I love how this course has opened my eyes to a different way of thinking. It's made me aware of my reactions to how children play and move around the setting. I'm always asking myself why? and how can I aid them? Or just observe, observe.
Karen Carter - Nursery Practitioner
Another fantastic informative course. With my eldest being 16 and youngest just 4 it is really interesting to have this knowledge now and think back about all three of my own children’s development. For my own setting it has really made me think about connections between floor play, emotions and confidence with all tasks not just fine and gross movement based tasks.
