Little Kickers
Across Perth. Programme runs throughout the school holidays. 
www.littlekickers.com.au

Play not Push’ is our motto! Little Kickers is a positive, fun-filled pre-school program executed in a friendly, pressure free environment that encourages children to “Learn through Play”. We recognise that every child is an individual and feel that children develop their skills best when they are playing with other kids of a similar age and ability. We focus on the physical well-being of the child and also promote the development of social skills such as turn taking, following instructions and sharing. These skills are put into practise at a key stage of your child’s growth. Simple problem-solving activities provide the perfect informal framework for encouraging our fledgling Socceroos to advance their basic attention building and listening skills. By playing fun games that include specific actions and movements children gain greater body control, whilst working on balance, co-ordination and gross motor skills. Our program also helps children to transition from parent-supported participation, to active, independent interaction through building skills and confidence.

Each session’s ticket allocation is for children only. Accompanying adults need no ticket and are not permitted on the slides but can supervise children from the sidelines.
“Tickets will be a requirement for entry. If there are no-shows, those who do attend will be rewarded with more rides on the slides.”
