Children develop physical literacy by learning a wide variety of fundamental movement skills that allow them to enjoy many different physical activities and sports. Without physical literacy, they are less likely to stay active for life.
Here are some ways you can support your child to become more physically literate. If you are an educator, caregiver, or program leader, please visit our Pro Resources section.
