The Supporting Physical Activity in the Childcare Environment, warmly referred to as the SPACE study, aimed to improve the physical activity levels of preschoolers in childcare in London, Ontario. The goal of this study was to get these kids hopping, skipping and running; anything to get their heart beating and body sweating.
A 4-module e-Learning course in physical activity and sedentary behaviour (~90 mins/ module) was completed by pre- and in-service early childhood educators (ECEs). to get their heart beating and body sweating. Via online survey, changes in their physical activity and sedentary behaviour self-efficacy (31 items), knowledge (30 items), and behavioural intention (28 items) were explored.
