The goal of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional, social and mental health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances.

It is a profoundly simple but effective concept, which any preschool or elementary school can implement completely free of charge and without the need for staff training. We have provided the resources below to help you make The Daily Mile a success in your school!
