Healthy Movers

Healthy Movers aims to develop children’s physical literacy in the early years, support their social and emotional development and create healthy, active learners.

Description

The Healthy Movers programme is designed to support two to five-year-olds physical literacy, self-esteem and wellbeing, helping them gain a better start in life.

The programme is delivered through resources and training for practitioners in early years settings and families to continue the activities at home. For more information on some of the Healthy Movers resources and tools that can be purchased individually, see our product page.

Find out more about Healthy Movers delivery in Cornwall and West Somerset by selecting the links on the right hand side of this page.

Here, you can also find our Early Years Physical Literacy statements. This resource has been devised by a team of experts at the Youth Sport Trust (YST) using the Early Years Physical Literacy Framework as well as reflecting on the feedback from Early Years Practitioners and what YST colleagues have recognised as the needs of the children through observing Healthy Movers sessions. The statements can be used when delivering any physical activity intervention in all early year’s settings. They help and support practitioners in recognising the progress the children can make in their physical development and competence as well as their confidence and motivation so supporting the characteristics of effective learning such as resilience.

Free support 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made some of our Healthy Movers resource cards free for download. We also hosted Healthy Movers At Home sessions twice a week live on YouTube.
