Vista launches Early Years Eye Health resource pack
Following the success and wide spread media coverage of our Children’s eye screening app in Primary Schools across Leicestershire, we have identified a need for a similar pack in Early Years settings.
We've worked with East Midlands dance based artist Oksana Tyminska, who has over 20 years of experience to develop a practical resource pack called – Let's get moving.
The pack contains resources and activities that will stimulate children's creativity and support the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. It also gives Early Years Practitioners information about children's eye development and reinforces the importance of encouraging parents to take their children to have regular eye tests.
Steve Payne, Operations Director at Vista said:
"This is an excellent opportunity for nurseries and others in an Early Years setting to get involved at one of our workshops, get a free practical resource pack and understand how through the activities in the pack they can spot possible eye conditions, in their own nurseries and Early Years setting."
Let's get moving! Resource Pack
We launched our Vista Early Years Resource pack on; Monday 18th June at The Brite Centre on Braunstone Avenue.
We invited 20 nurseries to attend a training session to see a live demonstration of how the pack and activities will stimulate children's creativity and support the EYFS. The training session highlighted the importance of children's eye development and we encourage parents to take their children to have regular eye tests.
Please take a moment to watch the video and see the project in action.
