AllPlay Move for Parents/Carers
Welcome to AllPlay Move
We know that movement and physical activity is tied to positive health outcomes for all children and young people.. These resources are designed to support parents and carers of children with developmental challenges and disabilities to engage in formal and informal activities and hobbies.
AllPlay Learn’s online information and courses focus on strengths- and evidence-based research to support teachers, educators and other education professionals working with children, young people and families across Victorian early childhood education and care settings, primary schools and secondary schools. Our online resources are easy to download and print for use across homes, long day care, kindergarten and schools.
It is important that children remain healthy and active during this period. One aspect involved in this is engaging in regular physical activity, which has both physical AND emotional benefits for all children. Our AllPlay Dance and AllPlay Footy websites provide you with strategies to support children to get moving during this period and beyond.
Good sleep hygiene is also essential to physical and mental health.
You may have noticed that your child’s sleep patterns have been disrupted as your daily routine has changed. At a time when fear and anxiety may be heightened, it is especially important to establish a bedtime routine and ensure good sleep hygiene habits are established. Check out the Sleep Podcast for some more information on identifying sleeping problems in your children, and easy steps to improve their sleep cycles and overall health.
