About the Program

This fun, group based, intensive five week program assists preschool children to develop a range of gross motor skills essential for every day life. Each of the five sessions will focus on a different skill area. The program will:

  • Cover gross motor skills such as climbing and jumping, skipping, throwing and catching balls.
  • Provide an opportunity for your child to practice their gross motor skills and other skills in preparation for school such as taking off and on clothing items and shoes, opening containers and packets at snack times and learning to follow the rules of games. 
  • Be tailored to the individual goals of each child.

Please note that parents and carers will be expected to remain on site to participate and assist your child in all the activities.
