Note:

1.1.1 (SAM); IRB Protocol #IRB-20-649; The major goal of this proposed research Project MOVE (Minority Obesity Vanquished with Education) is to determine the efficacy of Head Start center-based and home-based physical activity interventions on racially, ethnically, and socioeconomically disadvantaged preschoolers’ outcomes including weight status assessed via Body Mass Index (BMI) percentile, physical activity and sedentary behavior measured by accelerometers, fundamental motor skills assessed via TGMD-III, and health-related quality of life reported by parents. The long-term objective of Project MOVE is to result in system changes, and to sustain comprehensive, developmentally, and culturally appropriate physical activity interventions implemented for all underserved preschoolers, which will equip them with the knowledge and skills to be physically active over the lifespan. Primary Aim 1: To evaluate the impact of the Project MOVE on preschoolers’ outcomes including weight status assessed via Body Mass Index (BMI) percentile, physical activity and sedentary behavior measured by accelerometers, FMS assessed via TGMD-III, and health-related quality of life reported by parents. Primary Aim 2: To identify facilitators and barriers associated with the Project MOVE Implementation. A subset of parents, center directors, and classroom teachers will participate in semi-structured interviews at the beginning and end of the school year and evaluate the effectiveness of the Project MOVE.
