SPARK-EC curriculum for preschoolers offered instruction and practice in a comprehensive program designed to promote motor development through increased physical activity.
The CIA study was a 5 month physical activity change intervention that utilized the SPARK-EC curriculum as the intervention. The SPARK-EC curriculum was designed to be a quality, comprehensive physical activity program for the preschool setting. Pre-and Post-intervention assessments were conducted
- Change from baseline in physical activity at post-intervention. [ Time Frame: 8 months ]Mini-Mitter Actical, an accelerometer-based activity monitor, was used to assess physical activity of the preschool children. Unit of measurement was mean percentage of time spent in sedentary, light and moderate-vigorous physical activity each day.
- Change from baseline in gross motor skills at post intervention. [ Time Frame: 8 months ]Gross motor skills were measured using the Test of Gross Motor Development. Unit of measurement was the Total Gross Motor Development percentile rank.
- Body Mass Index [ Time Frame: 8 months ]Body Mass Index was calculated using height and weight measures collected on the preschool children. Unit of measurement was kilograms (wt.)/meters squared (ht.).
