Music and Sport

Why we choose sport and music as physical activities in our centres.

 

We at Community Kids Haven believe that physical activity is vital for a child’s development and lays the foundation for a healthy and active life.
We take seriously our role of fostering the development of good physical activity habits early in life and make every attempt to encourage families to engage in regular activities.

We believe in offering a wide choice of play-based, physically active learning experiences that link to children’s interests, abilities, identity and prior knowledge. Physical activity in our centres need are made up of both intentionally and spontaneous music and sporting activities. As active role models, educators encourage children to participate in physical activity. 

The benefits to children of participating in physical activities are:

  • promoting healthy growth and development
  • helping to achieve and maintain a healthy weight
  • building strong bones and muscles
  • improving balance, coordination and strength
  • development of gross motor and fine motor skills
  • improving concentration and thinking skills
  • improving confidence and self-esteem
  • improving sleep

We believe in promoting a healthy life style for all ages.
