SEACLIFF KINDERGYM PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES

All children need as many opportunities as possible to optimise brain development and increase physical potential before they go to school.

Clumsiness or a lack of physical skill could simply mean a lack of practice. Seacliff KinderGym provides a safe environment for children to develop physical skills in a fun and playful way at their own rate. Seacliff KinderGym channels energy appropriately into creative processes and encourages children to decide how to use the equipment experiences provided. Children often attempt activities after watching other children in action. They feel safe and happy showing their parents what they can do, building confidence as they go.

Opportunities to move also help to enhance brain development. For example, visual tracking used when throwing and catching helps develop key movement skills, plus assists in training the muscles that control the eyes, strengthening hem in preparation  to read and write.

  • Parents

    Parents also benefit from sharing in their children’s fun and enjoyment. Seacliff Kindergym allows parents to share rather than direct, so real benefits come from the child’s self-initiated play. Parents or carers are responsible for supervision of safety and to offer positive ideas, encouragement and guidance.

    You are their best play mate and role model…enjoy this special time together.

  • Seacliff KinderGym Sessions

    Seacliff KinderGym sessions are planned with children’s ages and stage of development in mind and generally lasts between 45 minutes to an hour. As children begin to master physical skills and concentration and comprehension develops, the Seacliff KinderGym coach can offer more guided discovery ad direct teaching experiences in group time and on equipment.

    During group time, children and parents are involved in activities such as moving to music, working with rhythm and using hand apparatus, all designed to enhance the new skill that is being introduced during the lesson.

  • Fun for Everyone

    Seacliff KinderGym is lots of fun for all involved – children, parents/caregivers and coaches.

    Children learn through play and Seacliff KInderGym provides a rich environment which stimulates brain development through motor functions like climbing, rolling, jumping, hanging and swinging, throwing, kicking and crawling.

    Opportunities during these early years set the foundations for all future learning and life long active lifestyles.
