Active Play Every Day

Why being active is so important?

The theme for our children’s groups and classes this month is Fitness and Body. Being physically active is really important for babies, toddlers and preschoolers. It helps to build strong bones, muscles, a healthy heart and helps develop social skills and encourages a sense of wellbeing.

Physical activity helps a child to:

  • Develop their senses,
  • Develop good strength, balance and posture,
  • Learn about how their bodies work,
  • Build social and emotional bonds,
  • Develop essential movement skills,
  • Develop strong bones,
  • Improve their self confidence,
  • Lay foundations for a lifetime of fitness,
  • Improve coordination and flexibility, and
  • Maintain a healthy body weight.

Find out more about keeping your child active at Get Ireland Active and pick up Active Play Guidelines booklet at our centre during your next visit!
