Abstract: The role of early childhood education (ECE) is significant in children’s physical activity. Young children should engage in moderate- to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) for at least 60 minutes per day, which – according to the recommendations – should be spread throughout the day, including the ECE days. The purposes of this study were to explore children’s time use and MVPA in children’s activities and to see which activities are the most efficacious for MVPA in three different age groups (1–3-year-olds; 4–5-year-olds; 6–7-year-olds) during ECE days. Altogether, 2,879 children participated in this study in Southern Finland. The children were systematically observed for 6 mornings and for one afternoon. Children’s activities were classified to 11 different categories and the intensity level in each time interval was categorized into three levels. The data of 51,427 observations were analysed using cross-tabulation and a z-test. Significant differences in time-spent in the activities and in MVPA among the age groups were found. All age groups spent most of their time in daily routines (1–7-year-olds: 41%; 4–5-year-olds: 35%; 6–7-year-olds: 26%), which were ineffective in generating MVPA, as were tasks, reading and material play. Physically active play (e.g. running) and role play (the player has a role) accumulated the greatest amount of MVPA in all age groups, as did rule play (e.g. dodgeball), specifically in 6–7-yearolds. The variation was the highest in rule play. It is important that the educators include physically active play and role play in all common activity settings for all age groups, and rule play, especially for 6–7-year-olds. The contents and properties of the efficacious action not allowed would be worth examining both in preschools and in the future studies.
