Healthy Bodies introduces children to important principles relating to physical health and wellbeing.

From tummy time followed by crawling, through to ‘first steps’ and those big hops, skips and jumps! Our Healthy Bodies activities include daily scheduled physical activity time, group-sports, and an annual calendar of health and well-being incursions so children learn what will keep their bodies healthy.
