Why my 3 year old is limping while standing?

my 3 year old just got sent home from school after landing funny on her foot.
She was crying but is now ok and happy sat down but if she gets up she limps and crys.
There is no swelling and she can move her toes and puts weight on her foot while on the chair without complaining.

Pls rule out any underlying fractures if there is pain or swelling or redness...otherwise it could be some ligament strain which will get cure on its own by giving rest to the leg.
