Children in daycare are missing out on physical activity in favor of increased learning and activities in the classroom. Parental fears of potentially dangerous playgrounds and injuries associated with playing, combined with pressure from government learning guidelines, have resulted in little kids spending a lot of time indoors. Additionally, kids often become bored with updated, safer outdoor playground equipment, so they are less inclined to play. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that young children be physically active for an hour and a half to two hours daily. The study, published in the journal Pediatrics, recommends that teachers include physical activities within the class, such as playing with balls, and that parents ask whether children are allowed to play outside daily
