Why is Physical Education Important to the Preschool Child?
“Play is the foundation for children’s healthy development.”
At Ed-Venture Kids Camp our goal is to address the physical education needs of the preschool age child. Studies have shown that children with a structured P.E. and interactive play time are more prepared mentally and physically. Gymnastics and other physical games and activities help promote motor skill development while our interactive group activities re-enforce social skills.
When children participate in a variety of movements, they have a foundation of motor skills that they can build and refine throughout their school years. Children who have not developed their physical skills tend to become adults who don’t participate regularly in physical activities. Without regular activity, children may not be active enough to maintain healthy hearts, lungs and muscles.
“Individuals responsible for the well-being of toddlers and preschoolers should be aware of the importance of physical activity and facilitate the child’s movement skills.” National Association for Sports and Physical Education.
During the preschool years, children should be encouraged to practice movement skills in a variety of activities and settings. Instruction and positive reinforcement is critical during this time in order to ensure that children develop most of these skills before entering school.
