    Abstract

    A curriculum which is oriented toward process development gives the preschool staff much freedom when it comes to choosing various contents for achieving the same objectives. Their autonomy regarding the degree of choice they have applies to all core areas of the curriculum. Research from the field of Movement show that frequency of integrating movement/sports activities in kindergartens is influenced by material, human resources, content and organisational factors. By analysing movement/sports activities of children and preschool staff and by determining some material aspects for implementing the Movement, the situation in kindergartens was studied. In the survey 810 preschool staff participated who have undergone professional training for implementing elements of special Reggio Emilia principles of pedagogy from the field of preschool education. The data were processed using SPSS (Statistical Package for social Sciences Inc., Chicago IL, Version 16), whereby the Frequencies subprogramme was used to calculate frequencies of individual responses from questionnaires, whereas with numerical variables the Descriptives subprogramme was applied in order to calculate the mean and standard deviation. Based on the findings, the guidelines were provided that should serve as arguments for a more frequent inclusion of movement/sports activities in kindergartens.
