Background: Physical activity levels in child care

Children are sedentary for most (70-83%) of their time in child care, excluding nap1-2

only small amount (2-3%) of time in vigorous activity

only 12-46 min of moderate or vigorous activity over course of 6 hr day in child care1-2

The amount of physical activity children get in child care varies widely, and depends mostly on the center attended (27-47% of variance), not child factors (3-10% of variance combined)1-3
