Early Years Physical Activity Development

Physical development is critical during the first five years of life. It is well documented that higher levels of physical activity in childhood can lead to continued participation in later life.It is important to establish high levels of physical activity as early as possible to encourage children to stay active enough to benefit their health and to support continued interest and participation throughout adult life.

Across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland we are committed to driving the Early Years Physical Activity agenda forward. We work closely with a range of partners to provide local support around this agenda. Our Early Years opportunities and information within this section include information for parents / carers on physical activity guidelines and opportunities as well as information, support and guidance for childcare professionals
