Across Perth. Programme runs throughout the school holidays.

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.

Maritime Museum, Fremantle
Join us for an exciting summer school holiday program at the WA Maritime Museum as we step 100 years back in time, and celebrate Australia’s first naval victory. Our brave troops set off for war in a massive convoy of ships in November 1914. One hundred years on, we take this opportunity to explore what maritime conflict was like in the early days of the Royal Australian Navy, where communication internationally was through telegraph and wireless radio, and there was a high risk of enemy raiders threatening all ships, ports and communications stations across the Indian Ocean and beyond.

Courage, Codes and Conflict. 
Monday 19th - Friday 23rd January, Tuesday 27th - Friday 30th January.  Cost $3 for Morse Code bead bracelet making or $2 for poppy wreath making. Museum entry fee applies.
As we commemorate the 100th anniversary of Australians leaving in the Anzac Convoys for World War One battlegrounds, join us to explore the maritime communications, codes and courage of our ancestors. There will be hands-on opportunities to use old communication technologies, and you can craft your own name and wear it with our cool Morse code bead bracelets. Take up the wartime challenge of the Indian Ocean Raider Mission activity trail, or make a memorial poppy wreath in honour of the brave sailors of yesteryear.

For ages 4+
