    Reaserch shows that children do not get the recommended amount of daily intensive physical activity. The program named “Småbarnspedagogiken i rörelse” (Child care on the move) is a program that intend to help leaders and teachers to engage the children to get more physical activity during their day at the childcare center. The purpose of this study was to describe and analyze the impact that the program had on leaders that want to inspire their personal to expand the amount of physical activity for the children, and what methods they have used. The main theory for this study is Bronfenbrenners ecological model. In the study participated three municipalities from southern Finland. A survey with open questions was sent to the leaders of childcare centers with an electronic link. The material from the survey was analyzed by content analysis. The main result of the study was that the children did not get enough of the intensive physical activity and that the leaders had experienced challenges with the program. The most common challenge was that the leaders did not get the staff to participate in the work to increase physical activity for the children. Training in how to lead change would be needed for the leaders.
