We all are well aware that first five years or as they are referred to Early Years are of utmost important for a holistic development of every individual. It is in these initial years that major developments take place. Research bears testimony that physical activity in young children aids to enhance learning, concentration, motivation and their general wellbeing. As they grow, they show much eagerness and curiosity to explore their immediate surroundings – people, objects and the environment they interact with. During the whole journey of exploration children imbibe developmental skills which are required for growth and overall development like Physical Skills, Social Skills, Emotional Skills and language Skills etc.
Children are not geared to sit still – they are discovering their physical self, the strength they have and what their limbs can do – thus physical activity or Active Play contributes hugely in the learning process.
