Learning Through Play
Physical activity in early years (children under 5) helps to build relationships and social skills, it helps to maintain health and weight whilst developing muscles and bones.
Taking part in physical activity contributes to brain development and learning whilst encouraging movement and co-ordination and improving sleep.
Children should aim for at least 180 minutes per day of physical activity including jumping, climbing, skipping, throwing, catching, dancing, playing and riding a bike. EVERY MOVEMENT COUNTS!
The re:fresh Team provide a range of activities for children under 5 to take part in physical activity. To download the latest copy of their timetable click here.
