Active Living

One great way you can keep your preschooler healthy is to encourage and model active living. By making regular physical activity a part of your day together, you are ensuring your child will continue this healthy habit for the rest of her life.
  • Preschoolers need regular opportunities to exercise their large muscles. Give your child the time and space to run, climb, jump, dance, and swim.
  • Some preschoolers will be interested in team sports like soccer or t-ball, some may find a dance class more to their liking, and others may just want to spend the afternoon at a park. Follow your child’s cues when organizing physical activities.
