KidzGym Teachers' Facilitation Workshop


Workshop Description

"Current neural science research suggests motor activities contribute significantly to cognitive development, social emotional development and enhance the development of a positive self-esteem".

The goal of the KidzGym programme is to enhance motor capabilities of young children by providing sensory enriching experiences through physical activities. The programme also encourages language development, self-expression, creativity and imagination, through a theme-based approach with music, songs and dramatics. It promotes cooperation, sensitivity to others, spatial awareness, safety and respect for rules. The children should also have the opportunity on a daily basis for outdoor play where they are encouraged to engage on varied physical activities of their choice.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the vision of a "Delightful Experience" of the KidzGym programme.
  • Demonstrate competency in many movement forms and proficiency in a few movement forms.
  • Describe the difference between locomotor, non-locomotor and manipulative skills.
  • Apply movement concepts to the learning and development of motor skills.
  • Understand the importance of responsible personal and social behaviour for children in physical settings.
  • Understand and respect differences among children in physical activity settings.
  • Understand that physical activity provides opportunities for enjoyment, challenge, self-expression and social interaction.
