Early Years Physical Activity Project

This COSLA GOLD AWARD winning project has been delivering a “Ready Steady Go!” physical activity programme for every Early Learning & Childcare Centre (ELCC) and Partnership nursery in the area for the past twelve years.  This is  to provide children with the best possible start in life. The programme operates during the curriculum time with an average of two thousand 0 – 4 year old children participating in the physical activity sessions every week throughout the academic calendar.

“Ready, Steady Go!” programme:

  1. Football
  2. Orienteering
  3. Scottish Country Dancing
  4. Golf
  5. Balanceability (Balance Bikes)
  6. Tennis
  7. Badminton

Please see a comment from local Early Learning & Childcare Centres below:

“I do not hesitate when I say the service the project provide for our youngest and in many cases most vulnerable children in West Dunbartonshire is one that has a high impact on children's over-all development and an impact on their attitude to life long learning.”
