About

The goal of this project is to examine the physical activity and screen-time environment of licensed childcare centers before and after the enactment of new state regulations.

Full description

Pause and Play will take a prospective observational epidemiological approach before and after enactment of new regulations. 10 childcare centers licensed in East Baton Rouge Parish will be randomly selected and standardized behavioral observation scales will be used to objectively quantify the physical activity and screen-time environment of the centers and the children's behaviors both in and outside the center. These assessments will be collected twice during the 2-year grant period to capture potential changes after the policies are implemented.
