Welcome to Move More Toddler Play!
Our free Toddler Play sessions are suitable for crawling babies to those aged 3 years old and their siblings with parents or carers, are designed to provide fun, active play opportunities for families, encouraging the benefits of moving more through play.
Our team of experienced Move More Playworkers will deliver soft play and activities which are engaging, fun and create a positive learning environment for all participants. Our Move More Playworkers will be on hand during each session to lead and demonstrate the children’s activities, whilst also engaging in discussions with parents over future play provision and the importance of active play at a developmental age.
From May, the Move More Toddler Play programme will be outdoors – predominately at community parks, parish halls and recreation centres. With some the locations having an indoor option when faced with adverse weather! For those that do not have an indoor option we will cater for wet play activities!
We will also have some balance bikes available for children at each session, so they can develop their basic skills involved with cycling, whilst having fun in a safe and traffic-free environment.

The Government of Jersey, in collaboration with the Best Start Partnership organisation, recently launched a free app for families with children under the age of five, as part of the COVID-19 recovery plans. 50 Things is a place-based, universal offer to support families. 50 Things provides a framework of activities which are intended to produce outcomes across a broad range of measures:
Other benefits from the app include tabs for resources, developing age-appropriate vocabulary, current child development research and top tips for the 50 activities. The app also highlights the importance of outdoor learning for young children and promotes the unique opportunities of growing up and living in Jersey. The aim of the app is to build parental confidence in understanding that what you do with your children can make the biggest difference in their early development.
