Our Learn And Grow Program
The Active Kids Group Learn and Grow team consists of professionally trained fitness, dance, drama and language educators. The aim of this program is to inspire a passion for learning; for today and tomorrow.
All programs are delivered in the form of 30 minute weekly lessons. Each week, educators and families will receive the lesson plans and the resources that will be used. This enables everyone to become actively involved in the early childhood learning journey.
Our Learn and Grow Program has a 3 pronged approach, and includes:
Dance and Drama
The dance and drama program allows children to express their creativity and ingenuity through movement and acting while developing their gross and fine motor skills. Jazz, ballet, hip-hop, rhythmic and drama games are all explored in this program.
In our classes we focus on improving children’s dance fundamentals, through fun games and adventures while building their confidence by playing different characters and exploring different scenarios in exciting activities. The children will also learn the importance of teamwork, sharing and problem solving while experiencing the pleasure it is to dance and act.
Our fitness program will foster the development of good physical activity habits in children and is composed of 11 sports including: soccer, AFL, basketball, cricket, hockey, T-ball, athletics, tennis, and gross motor fitness. Physical activity is vital for a child’s development and lay the foundation for a healthy and active life. Children engaging in physical activities are more likely to be active in later childhood through to adulthood.
The benefits of being active are: promoting healthy growth and development, building strong bones and muscles, improving balance, coordination and strength, learning about the body and how it moves, assisting with the development of gross motor and fine motor, providing the opportunity to develop fundament movements skills, building self-confidence and self-esteem, maintaining and developing flexibly and promoting an enjoyment of being active
Teaching children a foreign language helps with brain development and lays the foundation for lifelong academic achievement. Active Kids Group believes that all children deserve to learn a second language. Our language program makes learning a second language easy and fun at the age they learn best.
Learning a second language helps to foster a confident sense of identity in children. It will assist children’s ability to interact in relation to others with care, empathy and respect. Through this process, the children will not only develop a sense of belonging to groups and communities but gain an understanding of the reciprocal rights and responsibilities necessary for active community participation as well as encourage children to respond to diversity with respect.
