Physical activity

During the early years, physical activity impacts on children’s health and plays a key role in development, including building strong muscles and bones, developing a strong heart, and optimising brain development.

Please find some useful documents to use in your setting to improve best practice, and also to share with parents/carers in order to effectively promote physical activity.
