Children learn from movement and physical activity.
Better short and long term health outcomes for Under 5's occur as the time spent being physically active increases. Under 5's who are physically active develop better fundamental movement skills. Under 5's should be encouraged to regularly play and experience a variety of age appropriate physical activities. The environment or setting a child spends most of their time in highly influences how active they are.
Early childhood experiences are critical to the development of the skills, attitudes and confidence required to become an active participant in sport and recreation in later life.
