Physical development is a key component of the curriculum in the great majority of countries. But so far there has been no valid means of assessing the quality of the child's physical experience or the pedagogy and environmental quality of those physical experiences. The Movement Environment Rating Scale (MOVERS) is a new method of measuring the quality of environment and pedagogy in which young children are encouraged to move and be physically active. It applies the methodology used in the ECERS-E and SSTEW rating scales, making it easy for educators already familiar with these well-established scales to adopt. MOVERS has four sub-scales: * Curriculum, environment and resources for physical development * Pedagogy for physical development * Supporting physical activity and critical thinking * Parents/carers and staff MOVERS is an invaluable tool for research, self-evaluation and improvement, audit, and regulation.

With growing concerns over declining levels of school readiness and physical activity, this book highlights the importance of quality early movement experiences and explores the connection between poor early Physical Development opportunities and later difficulties in the classroom. The book outlines the Physical Development needs of babies, toddlers and young children up to the age of eight, and suggests practical ways in which these can be provided for. It explores key concepts and terms, such as physical literacy, fundamental movement skills, sport, physical activity and Physical Education (PE), in relation to young children’s Physical Development needs and discusses age-appropriate provision. Advice is given to prevent movement difficulties from occurring, but it is acknowledged that not all children follow a typical Physical Development pathway, and, where this is the case, suggestions are provided to help put children "back on course." The Physical Development Needs of Young Children is important reading for all who work with or care for young children, including Early Years practitioners, primary school teachers, students who are studying to join these professions, and parents.
