Physical Activity Resources for Early Years

The Healthy Tots Physical Activity Guide and supporting 'Lets Get Moving' cards have been developed by Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport and partners to support early years practitioners plan and coordinate appropriate physical activity play opportunities and environments for children under 5.

They will help practitioners meet requirements of various UK curriculums, particularly those relating to physical development within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

The Lets Get Moving cards give practical ideas of what practitioners, parents and carers can do with each age group, from 0-3 months to preschoolers.

Our 'Let's Get Moving' leaflets for parents provide top tips and advice on how to encourage 0-5 year olds to be active in the home environment.
