The Development Matters Guidance outlines some good practice that we are aware of:

Physical Development – Moving and Handling - Enabling Environments:

Offer low-level equipment so that babies can pull up to a standing position, shuffle or walk, ensuring that they are safe at all times, while not restricting their explorations. (8-20months)

Anticipate young children’s exuberance and ensure the space is clear and suitable for their rapid and sometimes unpredictable movements. (16-26months)

Provide safe spaces and explain safety to children and parents. (16-26months)

Physical Development – Moving and Handling - Positive Relationships:

Be aware that babies have little sense of danger when their interests are focused on getting something they want. (8-20 months)

Teach children the skills they need to use equipment safely, e.g. cutting with scissors or using tools. (30-50 months)

Explain why safety is an important factor in handling tools, equipment and materials, and have sensible rules for everybody to follow. (30-60months)

Early Learning Goals:

They move confidently in a range of ways, safely negotiating space.

Physical Development - Moving and Handling.

Children know the importance for good health of physical exercise, and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe.

They manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs successfully, including dressing and going to the toilet independently.

They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques.
