Let’s talk about how healthy eating habits, regular exercise, sleeping well and stress management lead to greater school readiness. Did you know that just 20 minutes of playtime can increase a child’s mental well-being? Promoting nutrition, playtime and movement are a few ways in which we can support school readiness. Readiness doesn’t mean sitting and listening. Research has proven that regular physical activity and lots of playtime support healthy development and lead to greater lifelong success and health, not just in childhood but throughout life! Join 4-C and other educators to learn more about how you can support your children in moving more, eating differently and sleeping better. This session will also provide insights into supporting children’s mental well-being and practical strategies for helping preschool children manage stress.
Participants will have the option of earning one hour of additional free credit by completing the post-work independent study. This workshop is free thanks to the generous sponsorship by the Jefferson County Community Early Childhood Council through a grant from the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood.
