Get Active Each Day Videos

The Munch & Move program encourages educators to expose children to a variety of movements through daily play-based learning experiences. This requires educators to plan activities and scaffold spontaneous opportunities to promote physical activity, encourage exploration of movement and assist children to develop fundamental movement skills (FMS).

The following videos showcase how educators provide physical activity opportunities to the children attending their services, through planned and spontaneous experiences and modified games:
