Little n Active

Developing children’s physical literacy through active and creative play!

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.

Little n Active Classes

Little n Active classes cater for different ages and developmental stages, providing children with developmentally appropriate activities to build fundamental movement and improve physical ability.

Classes are grouped by developmental stages, and active parental participation is a key component of the program. Each 45-minute class involves a welcome and open exploration, group time, guided adventure and farewell. Themes are also used each week and are the foundation for the learning stories that are created.

Approximate ages are:

Little Munchkins: 18 months to 2.5 years

Little Munchkin classes are designed for confident walkers who are keen to explore the world with their body. Little Munchkins are learning to run and jump, and they like to play alone or alongside other children. They like to imitate and can respond to simple directions.

Little Sprouts: 2.5 to 4 years

Little Sprouts classes are designed for children who can run and jump confidently. Little Sprouts are learning to hop, jump down from low heights, kick on the move and balance along a narrow beam. They are starting to play with other children, can share (with a little help) and enjoy dramatic play.

Little Tykes: 4 to 5 years

Little Tykes classes are designed for children who are becoming independent. These classes help children learn to listen, follow instructions, cooperate with others and the activities are more challenging.

Little Sibs: 18 months to 5 years

Little Sibs is a class for families where one grownup attends with two siblings under five. The content in this class includes a variety of activities that cater to various developmental stages and allows for reduced adult assistance.

Little n Active Themes

Little n Active Leaders will deliver 45-minute classes composed of a welcome and open exploration, group time, guided adventure and farewell, using different themes and activities to meet the developmental needs of the group. With the themes changing every fortnight, our program will always be engaging! Check out our upcoming themes below!

Teddy Bears

We’re going on a teddy bear hunt! This theme explores colour, animals, and the concepts of up, over, under and through.

 

Zoo

Jump like a kangaroo or swing like a monkey. Our Zoo theme brings fundamental movements to life, giving children the opportunity to move their bodies like the animals they see in the zoo.

Dinosaurs

Long, long, long ago, there were DINOSAURS. Some were very, very, big and some were very, very, small. In this theme, children are going to stomp, crash and fly just like dinosaurs do.

Transport

All aboard the Little n Active express! Our transport theme highlights directional movement skills, where children will learn to move their bodies left, right, fast, slow, up and down.

Santa’s Workshop

HO HO HO. Our fun Santa’s Workshop theme will be the last of the year and will bring all the excitement of the holiday season! The overarching goal of this lesson is to reinforce all of the learning that has taken place during the term.
