Education – STRATEGY 4

Ensure that early childhood education settings for children ages 0 to 5 years promote and facilitate physical activity.


  • Develop policies that clearly define physical activity components for Head Start and other early childhood program providers.
  • Develop and institute state-level standards for early childhood education programs that require the delivery of safe and appropriate physical activity programming.
  • Work with community college systems to include physical activity training as part of childcare certification and early childhood training programs.
  • Advocate for physical activity policies at childcare facilities that address the developmental needs of all children, including children with disabilities, those classified as obese, or children at high risk of inactivity.
