Howie, E. K., Brown, W. H., Dowda, M., McIver, K. L. and Pate, R. R.
The objective of this study was to describe the movement characteristics of high-active (HA) children during attendance at preschools.
HA children have unique activity patterns. Further interventions to increase physical activity of all preschoolers should increase the time spent outside and include varied activity types throughout the entire school day.
