13:00 - SEMINAR - PLAY Spaces and Environments for Children’s Physical Activity, Health & Development (PLAYCE) research program : SHS Seminar Series Website | More Information
An overview of the PLAYCE (PLAY Spaces and Environments for Children’s Physical Activity, Health & Development) program of research will be presented including the original PLAYCE study, which investigated the influence of the early childhood education and care (ECEC) environment on preschoolers’ physical activity. The physical activity, health and development of over 2000 children from 120 ECEC services were tracked. Two thirds of children aged 2-5 years did not meet the recommended three hours of physical activity per day as per the Australian 24-hour Movement Guidelines for the Early Years. Only 16% of services had a mention of physical activity in their centre policies. This research has led to a current NHMRC Partnership grant to develop, implement and evaluate ECEC specific physical activity related policy and programs.

Associate Professor Christian is a National Heart Foundation Future Leader Fellow. She leads the ‘Child Physical Activity, Health and Development’ team at Telethon Kids. Hayley also holds a Senior Research Fellow position at The University of Western Australia. Hayley’s research focuses on improving children’s physical activity levels, health and well-being through multi-level interventions focused on the child, family, social and built environment.
