CATCH Physical Activity Training


CATCH EARLY CHILDHOOD (CEC) is an evidence-based program for preschoolers, modeled after the CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) program. CEC Physical Activity training provides teachers and caregivers of young children with foundational knowledge about childhood obesity, its causes, and how to design a physical activity program supporting good health and fitness. Participants will gain the knowledge and tools needed to plan and lead structured physical activities which nurture a love of movement in the children they care for, leading to an active lifestyle so that little ones are motivated to walk, run, jump, dance and move their whole bodies while playing and having fun! . Participants will then practice leading group activities, adapting them for their specific ECE setting.
