Physical Activity Resource Guide for Child Care Centres

The activities provided in this guide include warm-ups, moderate to vigorous physical activity for limited spaces and outdoors, cool-downs, stretches and other fun ideas. These activities can be used throughout the year. Activities should be adapted for different age groups and suggestions are provided throughout the guide. Repetition of a physical activity five or six times during the course of a month, for example, will allow children to become familiar with the activity, and reduces the time required for instruction in the activity. As a result, children have more time to be physically active. Leaders can also create variations on the activities, and can also encourage kids to create their own variations.
