Promoting the 24-Hour Movement Guidelines in your Centre

All types of movement matter, and a balance of moving, sleeping and sitting is required for best health. Even if a child is getting enough physical activity in a day, the health benefits can be reduced by too little sleep, or too much sedentary behaviour—especially if that time is spent in front of screens.

Share the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines with the caregivers of the children in your centre to help build the best day for their child. Following these guidelines will lead to brains that are more active and better able to learn, think, and have healthy growth. 

Parents might find the fact sheet, infographic or video helpful for understanding how to build the best day for their child.
