Physical Wellbeing

 
We focus on overall physical health and wellbeing.

A strong sense of wellbeing provides children with confidence and optimism which maximize their learning potential.

It encourages the development of children’s innate exploratory drive, a sense of agency and a desire to interact with others. Wellbeing includes good physical health, feelings of happiness, satisfaction and successful social functioning. It influences the way children interact in their environments.

Through our everyday experiences and with the addition of Ready, Steady Go; Happy Feet and Young Yogi sessions we support our children to become stronger in their social and emotional wellbeing and provide opportunities for children to take increasing responsibility for their own health and physical wellbeing.

This enhances in our children the opportunity to:

  • demonstrate trust and confidence.

  • share humor, happiness and satisfaction.

  • seek out and accept new challenges, make new discoveries, and celebrate their own efforts and achievements and those of others.

  • increasingly co-operate and work collaboratively with others.

  • enjoy moments of solitude.

  • recognize their individual achievement.

  • make choices, accept challenges, take considered risks, manage change and cope with frustrations and the unexpected.

  • show an increasing capacity to understand, self-regulate and manage their emotions in ways that reflect the feelings and needs of others.

  • assert their capabilities and independence while demonstrating increasing awareness of the needs and rights of others.

  • recognize and communicate their bodily needs (for example, thirst, hunger, rest, comfort, physical activity).

  • are happy, healthy, safe and connected to others.

  • engage in increasingly complex sensory-motor skills and movement patterns.

  • combine gross and fine motor movement and balance to achieve increasingly complex patterns of activity including dance, creative movement and drama.

  • use their sensory capabilities and dispositions with increasing integration, skill and purpose to explore and respond to their world.

  • demonstrate spatial awareness and orient themselves, moving around and through their environments confidently and safely.

  • manipulate equipment and management tools with increasing competence and skill respond through movement to traditional and contemporary music, dance and storytelling.

  • show an increasing awareness of healthy lifestyles and good nutrition.

  • show enthusiasm for participating in physical play and negotiate play spaces to ensure the safety and wellbeing of themselves and others.
