“First Steps” Sports Programme

Our “First Steps” sports programme has been created for playgroups and montessori schools in order to provide an introduction to sport and physical activity for young children in preparation for their step up to primary school.

This FUN PACKED programme of sports related games and activities is designed to develop each child’s basic skills and sporting actions such as:

  • Balance
  • Agility
  • Spacial Awareness
  • Co-ordination
  • Speed
  • Reactions
  • Running
  • Jumping
  • Throwing
  • Catching
  • Change of Direction

By participating in our “First Steps” programme children will also learn simple things which will help them settle in to School PE such as:

  • Turn Taking
  • Team Work & Co-Operation
  • The Use of a Whistle
  • How to Form Lines
  • Basic Rules
  • Following Instructions
  • Working with different teachers

Children are also introduced to a huge variety of sports equipment and learn there different uses through simple, but enjoyable games! We believe being exposed to new equipment at this early age helps the children to be prepared for PE classes when they go to primary school and also reduces any fear or nerves they may otherwise have when being put into a sports/PE class environment!

The programme is suitable for both boys and girls and is a unique way to introduce exercise and sports to younger children. The programme is designed for children who are in their final year before starting primary school. Classes are full of variety, and easy to understand games and activities which not only teach sporting actions and skills but also use colours, numbers and memory skills so the children are constantly learning and developing a much wider range of skills!

Classes usually take place on a weekly basis and we develop the children’s skills throughout the school year!

Certificates are presented in recognition of each child’s achievements and as a way of encouraging them to stay interested in sports when they move on to primary school.

Why not help the children in your playgroup or montessori take their first steps in to sport by booking a programme with us!!
