At our nursery, babies are encouraged to be active throughout the day, every day in a variety of ways, including crawling. If they’re not yet crawling, we encourage them to be physically active by reaching and grasping, pulling and pushing, moving their head, body and limbs during daily routines, and during supervised floor play.
We realise that ‘tummy time’ is a crucial exercise for baby’s visual, motor, sensory stimulation and include at least 30 minutes of tummy time spread throughout the day when they’re awake. Once they can move around, we encourage them to be as active as possible in safely while supervised. They have opportunity to safely use the baby slide in their room.
