Helping under-5s live active and healthy lives — Early Movers
How active are the children in your setting?
A reminder that it is a statutory requirement of the EYFS (3.59)that children have daily access to outdoor activities.
It’s useful to do a check on levels of physical activity in your setting—how much time do children spend sitting or engaged in activities in which they have very little opportunity for gross motor movement ?
The British Heart Foundation recommends a daily minimum of 3 hours physical activity for under 5s.
