Even Piaget, a popular researcher on the development of children, knew that children, who have difficulty walking backwardsdo also have difficulties in counting backwards. Consequently, the foundations for a good and healthy life are being laid in the initial years of life. It is the elementary period for personality development- . Being active has a positive impact on the physical development of children, motoric skills, psyche, and cognitive skills. Fostering such a lifestyle from the beginning on is important for children to develop in a holisticmanner.

Based on a professional research and analysis of practical approaches on the topic of basic motoric skills and an active healthy lifestyle of young children in the field of early childhood education, an innovative training course and materials will be developed in a next step. It will, inter alia also be the basis for an updated analysis research paper and a policy recommendation paper on the importance of the strengthening of basic motoric skills and an active healthy lifestyle of children (with) early childhood education.
