Want an innovative way to get young children moving--and support development across multiple domains? Discover CHAMPPS, the fun, effective, and research‐based motor program for inclusive preschool classrooms. Filling the need for a school‐based motor program designed for children with diverse abilities, CHAMPPS uses universal design for learning strategies to increase all children's physical activity while supporting key school readiness skills, including social, language, and pre‐academic skills.
