The Movement Environment Rating Scale (MOVERS)

Supporting Physical Development and Movement Play in Early Childhood

Carol Archer - Iram Siraj

This revised new edition of The Movement Environment Rating Scale (MOVERS) offers a brand-new method of measuring the quality of environment and pedagogy in which young children are encouraged to move and be physically active.

As physical development is a key component of an educational curriculum, MOVERS offers practitioners the opportunity to accurately assess the quality of a child’s physical experiences, and the environmental and pedagogical quality of these experiences. The MOVERS is placed firmly in the family of CLIQRS – Curriculum, Leadership and Interaction Quality Rating Scales, which includes the Early Childhood Quality Rating Scale – Emergent Curriculum (ECQRS-EC), the Sustained Shared Thinking and Emotional Well-being Scale (SSTEW) and the Pedagogical Leadership in the Early Years (PLEY) scale, all of which have a similar format to previously mentioned scales, making it easy for educators already familiar with these well-established scales to adopt them and adapt them to their own unique settings.

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.

This book will be an invaluable tool for research, self-evaluation and improvement, audit and regulation. With additional notes derived using the feedback from extensive use of this resource by practitioners in hundreds of settings and early years specialists around the world, it has also been rigorously updated according to latest research, practice and policy.
