AIM: Gross motor skills are important for children's health and development. Delays in these skills are a concern for healthy developmental trajectories and therefore early identification of delay is important. This study screened for gross motor delay in children from low-income communities and investigated potential risk factors associated with gross motor delay. METHODS: This cross-sectional study involved 701 pre-schoolers (Mage = 54.1 ± 8.6 months, 52.8% boys) from childcare services in low...

BACKGROUND:In youth, research on the health benefits of breaking up sitting time is inconsistent. Our aim was to explore the association between the number of breaks in sitting time and adiposity in Australian toddlers. METHODS:This study comprised 266 toddlers (52% boys), aged 19.6 ± 4.2 months from the GET-UP! Study, Australia. Body mass index (BMI) was calculated and z-scores by age and sex were computed for waist circumference (WC). Participants were classified as overweight according to the...

Intentional teaching practices of early childhood education and care (ECEC) educators have a profound influence on children’s learning and health. The aim of this study was to assess the relationship between educator intentionality and pre-schoolers physical activity. Objectively measured physical activity (Actigraphs) was measured on 225 preschool-aged children (mean age = 3.95 ± 0.35 years, 44.9% girls) from 21 ECEC centres. Educator’s intentional teaching practices in relation to physical act...

Abstract Objectives Gross motor skills (GMS) are a vital component of a child’s development. Monitoring levels and correlates of GMS is important to ensure appropriate strategies are put in place to promote these skills in young children. The aim of this study was to describe the current level of GMS development of children aged 11–29 months and how these levels differ by age, sex, BMI and socio-economic status. Design Cross-sectional study. Methods This study involved children from 30 childcare...
