Active Play Guidelines for Under-Fives Resources

These resources were developed to support the Sit Less, Move More, Sleep Well: Active play guidelines for under-fives.

The resources were designed predominantly for kaiako in kohanga reo, but can be used by any early childhood educators, regional sports trusts and others who provide advice to parents, caregivers and whānau on active play for tamariki under five years of age.
