An early years setting is the ideal place to offer under 5s different opportunities to be active every day and to help each child meet the physical activity guidelines. This is especially important for children who spend most of their weekdays with you. For those children who spend a whole day with you, it will represent the majority, if not all of their waking day. It is therefore crucial that you provide opportunities for these children to meet the 180 minutes of physical activity. Likewise, for those children that are with you for only part of the day, you will need to provide some physical activity that will contribute towards their 180 minutes per day. It is crucial that you build up a close relationship with parents to inform them of what their child has taken part in at the setting and also provide them with advice and practical/ realistic ideas on how they can support their child/ren achieve the full 180 minutes/ day in a home environment.
