Early Learning.

Stay Active provides the foundation for young children's healthy habits, habits that they will have throughout their lifetime. ⁠Developing Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) early on in life is crucial to supporting the development of not only physical skills but social, emotional and cognitive skills in children. When children become competent and confident in these skills, they are able to take an increasing responsibility for their independence and physical wellbeing.

Our Early Learning Programs are run by qualified and pre-service Early Childhood Teachers.

Program content:

We provide a range of experiences that focus on the development of body management including spatial awareness and balance; locomotor skills such as running and hopping; and object control for example, throwing and catching. These individualised programs are created to meet the needs of the children at each centre, focusing on their strengths and abilities.
