Samenvatting

Objectives: Promoting unstructured outside play is a promising vehicle to increase children’s physical activity (PA).
This study investigates if factors of the social environment moderate the relationship between the perceived
physical environment and outside play.
Study design: 1875 parents from the KOALA Birth Cohort Study reported on their child’s outside play around age
five years, and 1516 parents around age seven years. Linear mixed model analyses were performed to evaluate
(moderating) relationships among factors of the social environment (parenting influences and social capital), the
perceived physical environment, and outside play at age five and seven. Season was entered as a random factor in
these analyses.
Results: Accessibility of PA facilities, positive parental attitude towards PA and social capital were associated
with more outside play, while parental concern and restriction of screen time were related with less outside
play. We found two significant interactions; both involving parent perceived responsibility towards child PA
participation.
Conclusion: Although we found a limited number of interactions, this study demonstrated that the impact of the
perceived physical environment may differ across levels of parent responsibility.
