Welcome 2021!

Good Times in 2020

Of course we are looking forward to better things ahead. This year has been mighty challenging, but there have been some special things in 2020 as well:

  • meeting lots of early years practitioners over zoom and talking about physical development in new ways

  • making a series of short films for parents to introduce the Developmental Movement Play approach

  • making and launching our first on-line course - The Feeling of Me

  • setting up a new Research Group with our Partner Settings to think specifically about the sensory side of physical development

  • making a podcast about the widest issues involved in re-thinking the early years physical development curriculum

  • re-making our shop website (where Loose Parts meets movement play) so we can show you some beautiful open-ended resources that support child-led, indoor movement play

And there's lots to look forward to in 2021 (yes really...)

Between January and April we are looking forward to teaching loads of Zoom courses for practitioners across Wales and Northern England ( and we mean loads!):

  • introductions to a Developmental Movement Pay approach

  • JABADAObaby - about the first year

  • Floorplay Foundations for little movers

  • Working with families at home

And there will be more on-line courses in all aspects of Developmental Movement Play

So bring it on ...
