Five Montréal-area school boards are involved in the My Daycare Is Physically Active project. Its goal is to encourage daycare staff to develop and adopt practices that encourage children to be physically active.
School daycare services are ideal to get many children to be active over a long period of time. By proposing a variety of stimulating activities, providing appropriate supervision and having a positive attitude, staff can make a difference in the habits children will adopt.
In addition to being a form of entertainment and source of well-being , practicing a variety of physical activities has positive effects on children’s health and school success.
My Daycare Is Physically Active is a training project designed to inform daycare staff about various themes that can have an impact on children’s willingness to adopt physically active lifestyles.
Schools work hard to make sure your kids are physically active as soon as they leave the classroom!
