As we know, physical activity is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, and kindergarten aged kids are no exception. We have been so fortunate this year to implement a P.E program across both Small Folks locations with our Innopoli Crocodiles’ teacher, Mikko! Mikko teaches 60 minute P.E sessions twice weekly to our Tiny Tiger, Eager Elephant, and Crazy Crocodile groups.
Classes typically start with a few warm up activities to get things started, followed by short relays and cooperative games. Turning exercising into playing games really has everyone jumping with enthusiasm.
Along with improving gross motor skills, P.E classes help to develop knowledge and understanding, attitudes and behaviours, and skills that enable children to get excitied about physical activity, and motivated to continue a healthy lifestyle.
Thank you Mikko!
