Key points to remember
- activity is just as important for babies as it is for older children
- by helping infants, toddlers and young children to get active, we help them to learn and grow
SPARC (Sport and Recreation New Zealand) has developed Active Movement / Koringa Hihiko to get more infants, toddlers and young children more active.
As part of Active Movement, SPARC has developed a series of activity guides for under fives which aim to help you to make physical activity part of your children’s lives.
If you'd like copies of the activity guides you can:
- download them from the SPARC website
- order free copies by contacting SPARC (see their contact details below)
