About

Objective is to examine the physical activity and screen-time behaviors of children enrolled in licensed childcare centers before and after the enactment of new state regulations.

Full description

Pause and Play aims to enroll 266 children. Each child will participate in the study for approximately 1 year. Surveys, anthropometric measures, and screen-time observations will take approximately 1 day each to complete, and the child will be given an accelerometer to wear at home for 7 days at both baseline and 1 year follow-up. Fundamental motor skill assessments will take place at baseline and 1 year follow-up after the 7 days of accelerometer wear. Staff members will spend approximately 2 weeks at each childcare center at baseline and 1 year follow-up to complete study procedures with each child.
