Physical Activity in the Curriculum
It's unclear who initiated National Anti-Boredom Month, but clearly this is a theme to which parents and childcare professionals can relate. In some ways, when you work with young children, every day involves some "anti-boredom" strategizing. However, with a little creativity and a gentle push in the right direction, there is no reason any young child should ever be bored for very long. Childcare professionals and parents should always remember this basic fact about all young children: they are active learners. Their minds and bodies work best when they are playing, exploring, and experimenting. For more information on Physical Activity in the curriculum, read CCEI's July Newsletter!
