Fit Kids Healthy Kids believes it is important to provide opportunity for children to learn skills like running, jumping, throwing, and catching as well as many others through games and activities that are non-competitive and inclusive.
We encourage in a holistic approach to these skills through various activities such as low organized games, stationed play, dance, modified sport, and free play.
We provide services that help recreation leaders, health leaders, early childhood educators, parents, teachers, and community in general to learn the meaning and importance of physical literacy.
Get started with creating your own lesson plan with advice from Fit Kids Healthy Kids on the most effective structures. We also offer pre-defined lesson plans based on age group and special days in the school calendar.
