Investigators examined how grantees that participated in the spring 2006 regional Training-of-Trainers event implemented I Am Moving, I Am Learning enhancements. The evaluation was not designed to assess impact on children's health outcomes.
Programs that participated in the training implemented a wide range of activities for children, staff members, and parents. Music and movement activities were integrated into daily activities in Head Start classrooms and as a part of home visits. Some programs reached out to staff members and parents, with the focus on increasing their movement activities and improving their eating habits to help them serve as better role models for the children.
