We all know being physically active is an important part of life if you want to stay healthy, but how young should we start? At Littlegym (based in Harrogate and in Leeds) their Little Bugs (babies aged 4 - 10 months) get into action from a young age and reap the benefits.

Warning: cuteness overload. 

Reading and writing will come in time, what's essential before they get to school is... movement. Something which the teachers at the Littlegym know all about! And as they say on their blog...

If a child can’t sit upright and have core balance, how will they sit at a desk and take in information from the teacher? 
If a child doesn’t have the strength in their arms, how will they manipulate a pen with fine motor control?
If a child can’t move their body from left to right to track a car, how will they cross the road?
