What are the future consequences of a sedentary childhood on life chances and health? What importance do we place in the UK on sleep, fresh air, good nutrition and movement?The Growing Child thoughtfully discusses the key principles of childrens physical development alongside descriptions of everyday practice. It looks in detail at all aspects of physical development including exercise, diet, sleep and how these link to the development of the whole child. The book considers key learning dispositions such as perseverance, determination, confidence, responsibility, courage and curiosity and shows how physical play helps to develop childrens organisational skills, team work, risk management, communication and raise their self-esteem.

Drawing on the authors own experience of running a Forest School nursery, the book aims to help practitioners to:create rich and stimulating play environments that enable children to learn, make connections and explore using their whole bodies-reflect on their own teaching methods to encourage childrens engagement, motivation and creativity through effective observation and planning-engage with parents and carers to help support childrens learning at home whilst maintaining the values of the family-celebrate the uniqueness of each child and provide learning experiences that are appropriate for individuals with particular learning needs, be they physical, emotional or cognitive to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to succeed.The first seven years of life provide distinct opportunities to lay the foundations for a positive, successful and happy life- it is essential that this is underpinned with a sound knowledge of child development.

Emphasising the importance of understanding the theory that underpins childrens physical development, this accessible text shows practitioners how they can use this knowledge to provide learning opportunities that nourish childrens health, learning and well-being.
