The PLAY Project (Physical Literacy for All Youth) formally known as PLE is part of an experiential learning experience for courses in Physical Education in the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation to provide opportunities for young children and their parents/guardians to explore movement activities, and for undergraduate and graduate students to observe and interact with young children in a movement environment. All those involved with the program have a background in, or are learning about, physical activity for young children.
The PLAY Project is designed to promote parental participation as children explore a variety of movement experiences. Parents should provide assistance and encouragement to their children when necessary, but should allow the children to freely engage in movement exploration. Students, undergraduate or graduate, will provide supervision throughout the sessions and will ensure that the program environment is challenging and safe. Parents must be present for the duration of each session and are responsible for maintaining their child/childrens' safety, along with the students.
Cancellations due to inclement weather will be announced via local media.
