The Washington Active Bodies Active Minds Web site and tool kit provides resources to ensure that environments for preschool children encourage minimum screen time and maximum physical activity. The site and materials were designed with the input of early childhood professionals and families.

The site includes:

  • Downloadable/printable versions of many of the WAABAM Tool Kit materials
  • Training materials for "Child Care Unplugged: What do we do about TV, DVDs and computer games?" An interactive training for child care professionals
  • New resources and studies identified in a recent review of the literature (See "Links" page)
