Ready Steady Go Kids is a multi-sports programme for children aged between 1.5 - 6 years, specifically designed to provide kids with a combination of both physical and emotional benefits.
As well as enhancing children's gross and fine motor skills, and helping its young members to develop greater self-confidence, Ready Steady Go Kids have also incorporated basic counting and colour concepts within their program, which aims to prepare younger children for their early school years.
Children can enjoy building a broad range of skills across 10 different sports (soccer, tennis, basketball, hockey, golf, AFL, rugby, athletics, cricket and T-ball), which are rotated ever 2 weeks, helping to ensure that children don't become disinterested with a particular activity.
Classes are spilt into four different age ranges:
'Get Ready Group' (1.5 - 2.5 years)
'Ready Group' (2.5 - 3 years)
'Steady Group' (3 - 4 years)
'Go Group' (4 - 6 years)
In order to make things more manageable for little attention spans, classes for the youngest 'Get Ready' group will last for 30 minutes, whereas all other classes will be 45 minutes long. The awesome thing about the Ready Steady Go Kids program is that it takes place indoors, so kids can stay active and involved no matter what the weather like!
To ensure that every participant receives a high level of attention and support, the company maintain a low instructor to student ratio.
Instructors have (as a minimum) a Level 1 Coaching qualification under the National Coaching Accreditation Scheme from the Australian Sports Commission, a current working with children check and extensive experience in teaching preschool-aged children.
