This practice engaged five in-service kindergarten teachers in the school-based Physical Health promotion curriculum through the Moving for Health Project with an aim to enhance the physical-psychological health of young children aged 5 in Lower Classes (K2) in a local kindergarten. Teachers were required to keep the daily log on their Moving teaching; and to videotape their students’ Moving moments in the Welcoming; Good-bye sessions every day; as well as the Physical Play in the kindergarten. The research conducted the last informal and unstructured interview with the teachers and principals after one month of the implementation. The qualitative analysis was adopted in the Project. Findings indicated that all teachers and the principal highly appreciated the rationale and implementation of the Project. Teachers found that they enjoyed the “Health-and-Play-based Teaching” very much. Besides, they experienced that students played joyfully and creatively when they moved meaningfully in the daily curriculum. Lastly, the teachers and principals strongly affirmed the educational values of this innovative Project.
