about

Physical development is a key component of the curriculum in the great majority of countries. But so far there has been no valid means of assessing the quality of the child's physical experience or the pedagogy and environmental quality of those physical experiences.

The Movement Environment Rating Scale (MOVERS) is a new method of measuring the quality of environment and pedagogy in which young children are encouraged to move and be physically active. It applies the methodology used in the ECERS-E and SSTEW rating scales, making it easy for educators already familiar with these well-established scales to adopt.

MOVERS has four sub-scales:
* Curriculum, environment and resources for physical development
* Pedagogy for physical development
* Supporting physical activity and critical thinking
* Parents/carers and staff

MOVERS is an invaluable tool for research, self-evaluation and improvement, audit, and regulation.
