Kids are naturally inclined to enjoy physical movement. As a parent, the most effective way to ensure your kids are getting enough physical activity is simply to avoid restricting their movement. Montessori education exemplifies this principle because it does not require children to sit at desks for hours on end. Instead, at a Montessori School, children are free to move about the room while they learn.
When you watch this video, you’ll hear some pediatricians discussing the ideal range of activity time for children of different age groups. For instance, tummy time is especially important for laying a foundation of gross motor skills. Toddlers are typically active for at least 180 minutes each day. Older children should get at least 60 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous activity.
