Play@Home is a programme designed to encourage parents and carers to help the development of children from birth to five years through the use of exercise and physical activity, and to educate parents in ways of handling and exercising their children.
Free 2 hour training sessions were provided for Childcare Practitioners to become trainers for the play@home programme. This equipped them to work with parents to provide the foundation for a physically active life.
The programme concentrates on birth to age 1 and the trainees were provided with a pack to enable onward training.
The first 4 sessions took place on Thursday 15th October 2009 attended by 35 people and the second 4 were on Wednesday 2nd December 2009 attended by 28 people.
Here is some of the feedback on the training.
