What is SHAPES?

SHAPES (which stands for Supporting Health and Activity in Preschool Environments) is an interactive online training program that provides educators with strategies to enhance opportunities for physical activity in the preschool setting. Throughout the program, participants will learn about physical activity, its importance, and how to incorporate physical activity inside and outside of the classroom, including during pre-academic lessons.

Support for SHAPES in South Carolina is provided by the BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation. If you’re a South Carolina-based school, center, or individual interested in the program, please contact the SHAPES SC team.

SHAPES is also available in California via the SNAP-Ed Library. SHAPES fulfills the SNAP-Ed Behavioral Objectives of Physical Activity and Reducing Screen Time, and Obesity Prevention. If you are involved with the California SNAP-Ed program and you are interested in SHAPES, please visit our SHAPES California page.

SHAPES is available nationwide to individuals and preschool centers. To register, please visit the SHAPES signup page.
