Let’s Move! Childcare Recognizes Cheney Elementary

Heidi Butterfield is a teacher for pre-kindergarten students at Cheney Elementary in Florida, and she desired to increase physical activity in her classroom. To achieve this goal, Heidi participated in the National Early Care and Education Learning Collaborative program (ECELC) in 2016-2017. Bad weather and lack of shade were a few of the many challenges Heidi faced with having only an outdoor space for her students. By participating in the ECELC program, Heidi knew she needed to create space indoors, especially with the current center policy requiring indoor recess days.

Read about the changes Heidi made on the Success Stories section of the Let’s Move! Childcare website.
