Ready, Steady, Run!

The school holidays can be a good time to work on running and movement skills. Studies show us that gains are made at a much quicker pace when skills and motor patterns are practiced multiple times a week.

School holidays running skills intensives will be on again in the January school holidays. The program will consist of four 1hr sessions over 2 weeks aimed at children 7yrs +.


With numbers strictly limits, spots will book up fast, however a second group may be added if demand is high, so please enquire now.

Play along with me!
These school holidays we are introducing a new group focussed on early childhood play. This group is aimed at young children aged 3-4yrs who are just beginning to learn how to engage in imaginative play and join in games with their peers. The group will support them to develop their skills and coach parents on how to support them with their learning.

 

During these sessions children will:

  • Practice and develop their play skills

  • Extend their attention and interaction skills

  • Develop age appropriate social communication skills

 

The group will be run jointly by an occupational therapist and speech pathologist.
