Little n Active

PCYC Queensland’s exclusive new Little n Active Program takes a fun and creative approach to introducing children under 5 to physical activity.

Held in a safe and welcoming space where active parental participation is key, Little n Active classes are designed to promote children’s curiosity, encourage problem solving, increase comprehension and develop social skills.

Little n Active classes cater for different ages and developmental stages, and can be modified to match children’s developmental needs. Each progressive lesson provides children with activities to build fundamental movement and improve their physical ability, using engaging themed environments that lend themselves to movement.

Individuals develop skills, technique, improve fitness and self confidence. Equipment (boxing mitts) is provided for first timers, but regular attendees will need to purchase their own equipment.
