What will your child learn from the Sports4Kinders program?

Apart from the obvious benefits that your child will achieve from physical activity (health, fitness, eye-hand co-ordination etc) they will also learn:

• Skills to prepare them for the physical education curriculum that they will begin
upon starting primary school

• Learn about all aspects of physical activity like hydration, human body (basic bones and muscles)

• Awareness of various sports through group time discussions

This begins and builds a child’s interest in various sports / exercises from an early age.
