Born to move

By Microcare Technologies Ltd

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Born to move is an NHS app to help parents or carers with their newborn babies right up to pre-school.

It's packed with advice, tips and games that you can play with your child to support their development.

The idea came from Julia Haynes, a health visitor at Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, who has worked extensively with health visitors, children's centre staff and local parents on its development.

Born to move is about encouraging daily active play and interaction to help the learning and wiring of your baby's brain at this critical early stage. It's designed to give you friendly advice and tips to support your child to develop intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically and build the foundations for a healthy, happy and confident baby.

Key features include:
- Option to personalise the app with a picture of your own baby
- Fun quizzes and games to play with your child
- Easy navigation with a different section for each stage of development from newborn, crawler, toddler, pre-school
- Links to other information you may find useful
- Feedback tool for improvements.

The Born to Move app, which is designed to be used in conjunction your health visitor, supports the Kent-wide Born to move - Active Learner project.

It was built by the Kent and Medway Health Informatics Service (KMHIS). If you find any bug or mistake in the app, or wish to add some new features, please do not hesitate in contacting us at

Customer Reviews


I saw this app recommended in Community Practitioner and as a Community Nursery Nurse was interested to see what information this offered parents. I was very disappointed in how awkward it was to use having to keep pressing the back button. The information given was so basic and the format was boring. If the NHS has funded this it is a complete waste of precious money. There are so many more interesting websites, books and Children's Centres to give ideas of activities for babies and children. Don't bother to download it, I'm glad I didn't have to pay for it!

Info but no ideas

Gives basic information but there are few suggestions for activities beyond telling you why something is important for your child to do. Currently , once you select a stage the back button doesn't work and the app is very clumsy to use. Great idea to have a free app like this but not very useful in its current form.
