KIDDO Early Learning Centres

Partners in children movement

Fun. Play. Imagination. That’s what physical activity should be for children in their early years. KIDDO will help you build your knowledge and skills as an Educator and help the children in your centre learn how to run, jump, balance, kick, throw and more, as well as develop the confidence to be active.

A little bit of background...

Physical literacy is a core element to building a healthy, active society. It provides kids with the confidence, motivation, skills and knowledge for continued lifelong active participation. In recent years children have become less physically active for a variety of reasons, both at home and at school, which is leading to more complex issues within society and our healthcare systems. 

In the Active Healthy Kids Australia report card, when compared globally, current data indicates no change in that trend, with Australia receiving a D- grade in physical activity behaviours.

KIDDO Gippsland is the perfect resource to help you deliver the Early Years Learning Framework and build the confidence and motivation of your students at the same time. We provide:

  • The tools, resources, and knowledge to build your confidence to deliver high quality physical literacy sessions
  • Continued support and learning opportunities
  • A focus on fun (both for the kids and you!)
  • A proven model – it works! Our research shows that KIDDO improves both the confidence and skills of kids aged 3-8

Take Home resources will be provided for each child with the games, instructions and equipment on there to make the games easier to replicate in a home setting as well as upskilling knowledge on physical literacy and their available resources and importance.
