Developed in consultation with many pre-school settings and early years practitioners, the ‘Go Project’ helps to
encourage parents and carers to not only interact with their children in their home environment but also to help
them understand the importance, for children of pre-school age, to gain the basic skills developed through
The development of such basic skills are considered as being essential to promote wellbeing, interaction and
communication, and most helpful for young children to acclimatise to a pre-school environment and the transition
to Key Stage 1. The importance of these basic elements is an integral part of the Early Years Foundation Stage
and Key Stage 1 physical development requirement.
The ‘Go Project’ encourages parents/carers and their children to play together, to be more active, and also
promotes eating more fruit and vegetables, all contributing to a healthier future. Each of the 30 different Take
Home Go Bags contains a piece of equipment and a Take Home Activity Card giving ideas on how to use the
equipment and also promote a healthy lifestyle.
The Take Home Activity Cards have been developed, with consideration for practitioners concerns regarding the
lack of many parents/carers interaction with their children. Through the use of basic skills, often taken for
granted and overlooked by adults, these cards are ideally suited to aid young children to develop and master
essential skills that are required to initiate a healthy and active start in life.
The ‘Go Project’ is supplied with a CD that contains instruction, lesson plans and more. There should be enough
varied equipment, when used with the cards to make everyone happy!
