Habits around eating and movement gain their foothold in children when they are very young. The environments we create in our homes, childcare programs, preschools and schools for young children can do to a lot to launch them on a track to lifelong healthy habits.  

Join physician, Dr. Kelsey Echols, as she shares her insights into nutrition and movement for toddlers and preschoolers.  Susie Shelton-Dodge, preschool teacher and Montessori program director, will then guide us in exploring how we can set up infant/toddler and preschool environments – be they at home or in a care/school setting, that invite children to make activity choices that lead to lifelong healthy habits.


The workshop is for early childhood educators and parents who wish to instill healthy lessons that include movement and nutrition in their classroom or home. Maria Montessori valued movement, saying “Movement, or physical activity, is thus an essential factor in intellectual growth.” Movement and healthy eating habits go hand-in-hand.  Come learn several practical and easy things you can do that will launch young children on this healthy journey.
