    Catrobatkidz will provide all the necessary movement experiences needed to have a profound effect on your child's life.

    SKILL DEVELOPMENT

    The Catrobatkidz Skill Development Programme enables children to have experiences in all of the movement spheres, at an age and stage in their lives when they can gain the most benefit from such experiences. More than merely providing the pre-school child with movement opportunities, the Catrobatkidz Skill Development Programme also helps him learn to move with more specific control, refinement and efficiency. These movement skills and patterns, once established in the brain, will remain there to benefit the child throughout life as he moves on to more complex movement activities such as sport, games and dancing. Each school is allocated a qualified permanent instructor that will get to know your child personally and who is dedicated to the progress of each child. We will appreciate the opportunity to teach your child.

    All Catrobatkidz children are Winners!

    Awards Concept

    At the end of each lesson your child is rewarded for their efforts with a Catrobatkidz stamp, or sticker. At the end of the year he/she will receive their certificate of achievement, and medal or similar prize awarded at the End of Year Awards Ceremony presentation.

    Life Skills

    Each week a motivational sentence is spoken to your child. These words are designed to create awareness of various important social issues such as: self-respect, manners, health, environment, safety etc.

    Assessment

    Your child's abilities will be assessed during each lesson, and at the end of each term, a specific age related skill assessment is made available to the parents.

    Equipment

    The vast variety of mini equipment and hand apparatus is specially designed to suit the requirements of pre-school children. All equipment is collapsible and is easily transported from school to school. Catrobatkidz offers a wide variety of stimulating educational music to suit the Programmes needs.

    SKILL AREAS

    Body Awareness 

    Children are taught body awareness throughout the programme, with constant reference to the various part's of one's body, their purpose and position. They are also taught what part enables them to perform the exercise, and what muscle group they are developing. Body image, the perception of the child himself, is a very important aspect of the child's development, and we at Catrobatkidz firmly believe in building a child's self esteem and confidence by positive reinforcement.

    Balance 

    Balance beam work, rope walking, chair class, balance boards and scooter boards ensure the development of good balance, both static and dynamic. Object balance is also covered.

    Locomotion 

    Mini equipment is used to stimulate children into performing many basic techniques widely used in many sports such as gymnastics, athletics and ball sports. Different types of jumps, landings, rolls, vaults etc. are coached to fully develop the skill of locomotion.

    Gross & Fine Motor Skills

    Many varied hand apparatus such as pegs and beanbags are used to develop all the facets of fine motor skills. Gross motor skills are exercised constantly throughout each lesson plan, and during the aerobic music warm-up.

    Co-ordination 

    Many lesson plans require co-ordination, and others are specifically designed to develop co-ordination, such as: ball classes - from tennis balls to soccer balls, and flag and streamer classes. All aspects of co-ordination i.e. eye/hand, eye/foot, eye/hand and foot, are explored.

    Spatial Relationships 

    Once again a large variety of apparatus, for example: hats, umbrella's, hula hoops, streamers, balls and chalkboard are used to teach the concept of space and direction. In these lesson plans, space, whether personal, group, or object related, and distance - forward, backward, up down, far near etc. are fully explored. Also covered is the concept of laterality and developing the sense of right and left, and the ever important crossing of the mid-line and brain integration.

    Rhythm & Timing

    In order to develop both internal and external sense of rhythm, children participate in aerobic warm up music suited to each lesson. Specific lesson plans are also provided which concentrate on rhythm, such as parachute, pom poms, rhythm sticks and maypole.

    Strength

    To develop upper and lower body strength and improve muscle tone the children partake in many safe, yet sometimes daring and challenging exercises. This is thoroughly enjoyed by all and includes lesson plans such as jumbo ball, high bar, cargo net, chest expanders etc. Children are also exposed to a large variety of acrobatic movements such as shoulder / head / handstands, cartwheels and springs to develop strength, agility and good muscle tone. Pre-school Physical Development Programmes

    Flexibility 

    Strength and tone of the muscle groups is developed by teaching not only static positions, but also movement that requires flexibility. Through practice children are taught exercises that allow the body to remain supple to let them achieve to the best of their potential.

    How will your child benefit from the Catrobatkidz programme?

    Catrobatkidz provides a safe, positive, fun-filled forum for your child to develop his physical skills and abilities. Because all movement requires exercise and integration of the Brain, mental skills and abilities are exercised and developed in direct proportion to physical activity. Maximum learning capacity is achieved when the Left and Right sides of the Brain are working together, or integrated. Specific movements and exercises involving balance and co-ordination, crossing the mid-line of the body and combining the senses (sight, sound, touch) are the core elements of Catrobatkidz lesson plans.
