We offer a variety of educational workshops throughout the year, from Physical Literacy 101 to preparing for athletic scholarships. We often collaborate with organizations like Sport for Life to bring in some informative, fun workshops.
Active Play for Child Care Professionals
PISE and Island Health are collaborating to bring information to child care license holders across Vancouver Island, relating to the addition of Active Play and Screen Time protocols to the standard of practice. This means that all child care license holders are required to have an Active Play policy and Screen Time policy in order to be fully compliant with licensing standards. Along with webinars delivered by Sport for Life on the theoretical structures behind physical literacy and physical activity, PISE will facilitate twelve in-person sessions across Vancouver Island.
Each in-person session will last for approximately 2.5 hours, and include games and activities for 0 – 12 year olds that can be facilitated in child care licence settings. The sessions will focus on fundamental movement skills, how to teach them, age appropriate games and activities for each skill and ways to adapt games for individuals of all abilities. A take-home handout will also be provided with information on teaching cues, where to find additional resources and helpful hints and tips.
Please check back soon for upcoming Fall workshops.
