Approaches to early childhood physical education vary enormously from country to country and raise many questions regarding appropriate strategies for the teacher to employ. The approach advocated in this chapter builds on early childhood educators’ existing knowledge and understanding, values the role of skilful observation and task design, and is based on methods that sit within holistic views of early childhood education. In particular, the methods discussed are strategies through which the educator can ensure that learning in physical education remains in “the exploratory world of early childhood . . allowing for the child to develop skills at their own pace through provision of opportunity” (Marsden & Weston, 2007, p. 390).
