Active foundations: the importance of physical activity for early years
Thursday 9th May 12:50 - 13:30
Physical activity for young children has a lifelong positive impact on their overall health, wellbeing and development.
By providing enjoyable daily opportunities to be physically active – we can ensure that all children become competent and confident movers – effective communicators – and ‘ready for school.’
Habits and dispositions towards physical activity are embedded early – it is critical that we promote positive behaviours that lead to lifelong engagement with a wide range of opportunities.
