Active Families for EYFS
Parents have an important role to play in creating opportunities for encouraging their children to participate in physical activity.
a supportive, encouraging, inspiring family
- parents who provide practical support
- the opportunity to do things with other family members
Most children develop their attitudes and behaviours through socialisation and the family, together with peers and teachers, have a key influence. Parents' physical activity levels also appear to influence their children's. For example, in households where both parents reported high levels of physical activity, children were also more likely to report higher levels than households with only one active parent.
The Active Families programme uses physical activity as the driving force to engage children and their parents in a fun, structured learning environment. It provides opportunities for families to participate in practical activities that not only enhance self esteem, but also increase physical activity participation trends and help children build a solid foundation for a healthy lifestyle.
Delivered by our trained educators, the programmeincludes interactive workshops and topics include the healthy body, nutrition and fun, family orientated challenges aimed at motivating and increasing confidence. All families who complete the programme receive an activity pack, containing equipment and resources designed to sustain their activity levels.
