Greater Manchester's Ten Tips for Moving

With Greater Manchester continuing to lead the way in tackling the issue of school readiness, a new set of leaflets have been created to provide guidance to parents and carers to support their children’s physical development, from birth through to starting school. The leaflets (separated into stages of development) give ten top tips for movement for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers, all of which can be done in the home or in a suitable outdoor space.
