Kids at Play Active Play – helping educators get kids moving

Introduction to the importance of teaching fundamental movement skills

Kids at Play Active Play (KAPAP) is a free ACT Government program that offers training and resources for early childhood educators in the ACT.

The KAPAP professional learning has been designed to help early childhood educators feel confident to promote active play and teach fundamental movement skills (FMS) to children aged 3 and up in early childhood settings. This training includes practical ‘hands on’ skills sessions to assist educators to apply the learnings in their classes.

Kids at Play Active Play has been mapped against the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), National Quality Standard and Australian Curriculum (K & 1/2). Participation in KAPAP can assist Early Childhood Education Services (ECEC) service providers to achieve EYLF outcomes and NQS quality areas, standards and elements.

If you are a provider of the quality early childhood education for 3 year old children initiative, we have some additional scaffolding for KAPAP implementation available to you, so contact us to find out the details.
