Active Early Learning (AEL) Curriculum
Healthier, Fitter and Smarter Kids
The St Clare Group implemented the Active Early Learning (AEL) Curriculum in our centres to support Healthier, Fitter & Smarter children.
The AEL Curriculum is a physical literacy program. It isn’t just about helping children ‘be active’ and ‘fit’ while they are with us, instead it’s a holistic program that helps children build their fundamental movement skills, motivation and physical confidence. These skills become the foundation for a healthy and physically active lifestyle now and in the future.
The AEL Curriculum was developed over two years via a study partnership with the University of Canberra, Deakin University and Active Early Learning. The study investigated the impact of threading core movement education throughout an early learning centre curriculum.
