New Paper from the Physical Activity Alliance: Physical Activity for Preschoolers During the COVID Pandemic

[From the Physical Activity Alliance] Actions to support physical activity in U.S. preschoolers were needed before the COVID-19 pandemic, and such actions are needed even more as the pandemic continues to challenge families and many other elements of society. While formal surveys in the U.S. are lacking, it appears likely that the pandemic has produced changes in homes, schools, and communities that have restricted young children’s access to the settings and programs where they normally engage in physical activity.

The Physical Activity Alliance is proud to release its first position paper on Physical Activity for Preschoolers During the COVID Pandemic. This document is intended to provide guidance for parents and a wide range of professionals whose actions can influence young children’s physical activity behavior.
