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: Crawling to 5 years

Little Sibs is a class for families where one grown up 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!

Circus

Roll up, roll up, the Little n Active circus is in town! Children find their balance on the tightrope, swing like trapeze artists and take big steps like a silly clown. We build coordination and movement skills as children learn to move like an acrobat, juggle and twirl like a circus ringleader!

 

Space

3, 2, 1… let’s blast off like rockets launching into space and touch the stars! Children will practice dodging the meteor shower, climbing like an alien, jumping over craters and crawling through black holes. Join us as we spin in the flying saucer, collect moon rocks and roll like an asteroid.

 

Rock n Roll

Put a coin in the jukebox because it’s time to rock n roll! Enjoy the rhythms as children bang the drums, spin like a record, twist and jive. From discovering ten pin bowling to playing piano keys, there’s a bit of everything to fine-tune your child’s movement skills.

 

Sports Day

Children improve their hand-eye coordination as they throw the shot put, jump over hurdles, practise cycling legs and swimming strokes. Join us cheering on the athletes as they volley the ball across the net, shoot the basketball through the hoop, and kick a soccer ball! There are countless events to try on Sports Day.

When I Grow Up

Little one can’t wait to grow up? At Little n Active children can play the part now! Children score points like a famous basketball player, post letters like a postie, and crawl down into the mine shaft to find gold like a miner. Slide out of the station like a firefighter, then vault over the fence like a police officer.

The Farm

It’s going to be a busy day on the Little n Active farm! First, we climb the ladder to pick apples from the tree, collect the eggs from the hen house, plant carrots then lasso the cows. Children learn to tip toe past the sleeping dog, count the sheep, roll like a pig in mud and scare away the crows.

Winter Wonderland

Snowflakes are falling in our Little n Active Winter Wonderland! Children learn to balance on a snowboard, freeze like a statue, slide down the slope like a penguin, spin like an ice skater, roll like a snowball, and hang upside down like an icicle.
