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.
