Movement in Water’s Edge

November 26, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Throughout the day, the children in Water’s Edge are busy moving their bodies in many ways.  We are fortunate to have a variety of spaces and equipment to support this development.  For instance, the gym has mats, balls and obstacle course materials and our playground is filled with swings,a sandbox, the climber and lots of space for running.  While engaged in these movement activities, we see the following Key Developmental Indicators: Initiative (opportunities to choose what to do), Building Relationships with Others, Listening and Responding, Cause and Effect, and Pretend Play.
