Little Feet

It is never too early to establish healthy habits.

Little Feet is a great way to encourage families with young children to commit to healthy travel throughout childhood - and hopefully for life!

How does Little Feet work?

Living Streets’ Little Feet is perfect for getting little ones walking through a set of fun and engaging activities, covering two early-years themes: 
People Who Help Us and Minibeasts.

Each theme consists of a four-six week burst of activity, and they can each be run whenever fits a setting’s needs, but we recommend May and October.

Little Feet’s journey maps, stickers and educational games are designed to reward families for their walking journey and walking successes (cycling and scooting count too!) instilling healthy habits for life.

Why Little Feet is needed

( in 10 children aged 2-4 do not meet recommended daily activity levels
78% of early years settings are not involved in walking initiatives
More cars in the roads = more congestion and pollution

Walking all or part of the journey to or from pre-school is an easy and effective way to help families meet daily activity level recommendations. If we can encourage more children to enjoy the benefits of walking from a young age, unhealthy weight levels in primary school children should drop.

Little Feet also provides families with the opportunity to spend quality time together and it is the perfect chance for parent/carers to teach their child road safety skills and how too look after the environment.

70% of teachers found it easy to use in the classroom

88% of teachers found the resource to be age appropriate

Supports the EYFS framework and Ofsted descriptors 

Rewards healthy choices 

Celebrates walking successes

Promotes school readiness

Instils healthy habits for life 

The successful delivery of Little Feet relies on a shared responsibility between early years setting and parent/carers. Children will learn about the benefits of being healthy more easily if they hear the same messages from their teacher and at home, so to get the most out of Little Feet it is essential to get parents/carers on board.

… and don’t forget, children learn best through repetition. Don’t worry if the children take a little time to get used to the some of the activities, it won’t be long until you start see the impact Little Feet can have!
