The program lays the foundation for your child for many sports, using specially written songs to teach the basic sports shapes for sports such as cricket, soccer, netball, league and basketball.
Greg Page, being an early childhood educator designed the program to also deliver outcomes that are in line with the Early Years Learning Framework, adopted by all early childhood learning centres.
Our instructors are all trained in the Let’s Activate Method, which includes the AIS Community Coaching General Principles, and importantly also covers the basics of child development, child psychology and sports biomechanics, resulting in your child receiving a well-rounded experience which will build their:
• Gross motor skills
• Cognitive development
• Self-esteem, confidence and self-image
• Social skills, such as sharing and turn-taking
• Creative expression, through the music and movement
• Positive attitudes toward healthy eating and lifestyles
20 MONTHS – 3YO PROGRAM
This fun, introductory 30 minute weekly program is for 20 months to 3 year olds, it is heavily music-based and incorporates dance and movement as well as basic sports skill games.
It is a requirement that a carer assists your child with participation for this program.
3 – 6YO PROGRAM
This fun 50 minute program is for 3 to 6 year olds. It uses all the ‘Let’s Activate’ music, dance, movement and sports skills. You will see in this program the incorporation of the basic sports shapes is made more obvious via the sports games played. The connections of the sports shapes to actual sports movement is also more overt.
ACTIVATE THROUGHOUT THE WEEK
We have developed video and songs you can access online with your child to extend their learning with the program, and to also help keep them entertained, active, happy little munchkins throughout the week. Watch them improve rapidly with repeat practice outside of class time.
WHAT THIS PROGRAM IS ‘NOT’
This is definitely not just a ‘baby-sitting’ program, if you get involved by watching the class, learning some of the movements, accessing the online music and songs at home with your child, you’ll be amazed at their progress and at how much fun you have doing it with them too!
> COME ON, LET’S ACTIVATE..
If you want to give your child the best chance to go into school co-ordinated and confident, try this unique program.
While children naturally have different rates of development, you can take action to develop the coordination in your child before they lag behind.
Developing a child’s motor skills from an early age will dramatically increase their confidence levels.
HAVE SERIOUS FUN
The combination of music, sport and dance will really put a smile on your child’s face. This is what really matters.
> WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING..
“It was hard for me to find an activity that both Pixie and Hunter could both be involved in and also genuinely enjoyed. We have found that Let’s Activate combines Pixie’s love of music and dancing and Hunter’s love for sport into one program so it’s perfect for our family.”
“I can’t speak highly enough of the Let’s Activate class my daughter has been attending at Miranda. The staff are amazing! They are so friendly, enthusiastic and patient with the kids. My daughter can be quite shy but the staff have continued to encourage her and every week she becomes more confident, and now can’t wait to get to her session on Monday. It is such an innovative program with the way they have combined music, dance and sport. I would definitely recommend it to any parents looking for a new activity for their child.”
“Let’s Activate is a brilliant program that both my daughters Gigi (3) and Mila (5) love! The activities, music and trainers are engaging and it’s a great way to get the girls more active.”
“Congratulations to Lee and Shane, what a fantastic achievement. It so important these days with so much technology, to get kids out and about and active again and to combine it with music is just genius. I love the little uniforms as well, I struggled to get Kennedy to take hers off before bed, she wanted to sleep in it! We can’t wait for our session next week.”
“Both my 2 year old and 4 year old love the variety at Let’s Activate, it saves me taking them to lots of different activities because Let’s Activate has given them music, kicking balls, throwing and jumping lessons all in the one session. They really enjoy the music too, I play it to them at home and in the car when they need to be entertained!”
“I highly recommend Let’s Activate, it combines sports and fine motor skills with original music. My daughter walks away smiling each week. We can’t wait to sign up for next term.”
