Early Years Physical Activity

Moving more and keeping active plays a part in creating a healthy lifestyle.

It is so important that children under the age of 5 are staying active on a daily basis. The national recommendation by the Chief Medical Officer states that children aged 12 months and under should be doing a minimum of 30 minutes physical activity per day and children aged 1-5 should be doing a minimum of 180 minutes of physical activity per day. This can help with their physical, mental and social development.

We have lot's of useful information and resources for you to access in both the professional and parent/carer sections of our website.

Our Childcare Professional section provides information on; local events/courses, the annual LRS Conference, Healthy Tots accreditation, Twilight Tots (intergenerational programme) and some resources on physical activity.

In our Parent/Carer section you will find information on staying active at home, pregnancy information and lots of activity ideas and videos.
