What is the Early Childhood Physical Activity Institute (ECPAI)?

Be Active Kids has teamed up with Dr. Diane Craft of Active Play Books and other international, national and local experts in the fields of Health, Physical Activity, Recreation, Physical Education, Play, Nature, and Community Environments to provide an extensive physical activity training experience to individuals working with child care providers, preschool teachers or others who interact with large groups of young children on a regular basis.

 

Why the need for the Early Childhood Physical Activity Institute:

Concern 1:  Lack of knowledge about and comfort with physical activity

  • Solution 1:  To provide participants with ongoing knowledge and skills needed to transfer developmentally appropriate physical activity and movement experiences to early childhood educators
  • Solution 2: To provide hands-on experience teaching and playing with preschool children


Concern 2:  Lack of opportunities and financial support to learn from the best

  • Solution 3:  To provide access to international, national, and local experts that may be otherwise inaccessible to various parts of North Carolina

 


Early Childhood Physical Activity Institute (ECPAI) Outcomes

  • Increase knowledge about physical activity, motor skills, movement concepts, and active play for young children (All Participants)

  • Increase teaching/training skills to transfer developmentally appropriate physical activity strategies to child care providers (Alumni and 15 New Candidates)

  • Increase participation in various types of physical activity experiences (Alumni and 15 New Candidates)

  • Demonstrate the use of new knowledge and skills by providing regular physical activity experiences to child care providers, directors, or parents (a minimum of one within the following six months)  (Alumni and 15 New Candidates)
