The Building Blocks of Child Wellness The Important of Physical Activity Our Mission is to bring awareness to our families, community and students by promoting healthy and fulfilled lifestyles and different ways to lead them. As a early childhood educator it is important that we improve the quality of child care by initiating an strengthening the connection between physical fitness, good health, communities, and families they serve. A child health ensures that they will have experience quality physical education approaches at school and homes as well. Educators are responsible for the health and safety of the children they serve and care for. From preventing harm from known safety risk to promoting health, nutritional, mental and physical wellness; educators, parents, and program directors act as role models and daily protectors and support for each child we touch. For children, physical activity and movement enhances fitness, fosters growth and development, and helps teach them about their world. As teachers of young children, we know that most children are naturally physically active. They learn as they move throughout their environment. Regular physical activity improves health and reduces the risk of developing many chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, overweight and obesity, osteoporosis, diabetes, and certain cancers. Promoting physical activity is very important. By keeping our children moving and staying active encourages them to be more physically active. Make physical activity an integral part of your home and community through programs, events, meeting, and events.
To start you can begin each morning with an interactive activity. By having them each morning getting up and stretching moving around during breakfast and after dinner allow physical activity in doors. This will help the students develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills they need to adopt and maintain a physically active lifestyle. Provide opportunities for them to practice lifelong activities such as walking, running, jumping rope, and swimming, bicycling, or skating. Encourage youth to be physically active by providing examples of how they can fit more activity into their daily schedules. Youth can add physical activity into their routines by walking or riding their bikes to and from school, to friends’ houses, or to the store; taking the stairs; and helping out with chores such as mowing the lawn, gardening, or washing the car.
When dealing with the community us as role models can plan special events for physical activity. Walk-a-thons, dances, or sports tournaments are great fundraiser activities that also promote physical activity messages. Get youth, parents, community members, and local businesses and agencies involved in planning and participating in the event. For a parent picnic, why not organize a friendly young people vs. elder’s basketball or volleyball game? These events are great ways to promote physical activity and have youth share health information with their parents and the community.
