Learn and develop essential skills for sport coordination - we will be following a structured program from Kiddo which focuses on developing the 4 key physical literacies of running, jumping, throwing and catching, which lay the foundations for good coordination and healthy activity throughout our lives.

Once our little ones have used up some energy, we will head over to the library for a quieter session, joining them for their regular Friday story-time, with story, rhymes, song and craft. 

Our Friday will look like this: 

9.30     Arrive playgroup room at MFC

            Welcome/warm up

            Structured activities focusing on key skill development (running, jumping, throwing, catching)

10.15   snack time

10.30    arrive library for story-time, rhymes, songs and craft

Here is a little more information about the Kiddo program, which Fiona has recently completed the training in.

Welcome to KIDDO

And welcome to a specialist program developed by academics from Exercise and Sports Science in the School of Human Sciences at the University of Western Australia.

KIDDO (formerly known as Uni-Active) was launched in 2014 to help develop the skills, confidence and motivation for Australia children to be physically active.

Designed to help develop physical literacy in children aged birth to 8 years, KIDDO provides information, practical resources and skills for parents, teachers and early learning educators.

Over 12,000 children and 764 primary schools and early childhood education and care centres have taken part in KIDDO programs since 2014.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our Friday program :)
