Being Active

When you're feeling tired, being active may seem like the last thing you want to do. But regular activity for you and your baby can relax you both, support and maintain good health.

Active Start Activities for you young ones

There is a range of activities you can try indoors and outdoors as a family, and find out more about active play and how to support your child to be happy, ready to learn and stay active as they grow.

Get involved in 'Active Play' right from the start - encourage your baby to move and practice reaching, grasping, pulling and pushing whilst moving their bodies on a daily basis. Active Start for Babies is tailored to this. As they grow and develop, support them to use their own bodies to crawl, walk, run, jump and climb. Active Start for Toddlers is tailored for this. 

If you're looking for ideas and inspiration to support your little ones on their movement journey, why not look at these activities?
