Physical Development – Movement and Space
Development matters: Move freely with pleasure and confidence in a range of ways, such as slithering, shuffling, rolling, crawling, walking, running, jumping, skipping, sliding and hopping (30–50 months); Show an understanding of the need for safety when tackling new challenges (40–60+ months).
Early learning goal: Move with confidence, imagination and safety.
