Indoor Space

Indoor Space

Through careful planning, organising of space and timetabling you can make the most of your indoor space to ensure that children have regular opportunities to be physically active.

  • Have different environments for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers, i.e. baby rooms to have plenty of stimuli, different lighting, comfortable mats to lie on, space for babies to move around, soft cushions to lie on or crawl over.
  • Create space in toddler/pre-school rooms by moving tables or encourage activities where children can play under tables by making dens.
  • Encourage free flow between indoor and outdoors areas by setting up activities that link the two.
  • Indoor activities could include playing with small equipment, moving to music, action rhymes or rolling around/ soft play.
