"The primary audiences for these guidelines are policy makers in ministries of health, education and /or social welfare, working in high- as well as low- and middleincome countries, persons working in non-governmental organizations and early childhood development services, and those providing advice and guidance to caregivers, such as community or family nurses or doctors, paediatricians or occupational therapists. These guidelines are intended to assist officials as they develop national plans to increase physical activity, reduce sedentary time and improve time spent sleeping in young children though guidance documents and define critical elements of childcare services and pre-service training for health care and early childhood development professionals."
