There’s no doubt about it: children need to move.
Greetings <<First name>>
Even before they're born, babies stretch and kick in the womb. From the moment we welcome them into the world, babies work hard to gain the movement skills they need to roll over, sit, stand, cruise, run, and jump.
Yet, although we all know it’s important to encourage kids to be active, parents, caregivers, and early childhood educators are often unsure how to do this—especially if they don’t consider themselves to be "sporty" people.
The good news is, it’s easier than you think. The very best way to support young children to develop physical literacy is to encourage active free play every day, especially outdoors.
Here are some ways you can help little ones move and play at home, daycare, and school.
