Early Childhood Education

Is your centre after some new ideas for getting your kids physically active? An Active Attitude instructor is available to visit your centre and deliver physical activity sessions for your children and provide your staff with ideas and skills that they can continue to utilize in the centre.

Active Attitude has two types of programmes/sessions available for under 5’s:


PlayGym is an early childhood philosophy promoted by GymSports New Zealand. Classes provide children and teachers with an opportunity to develop all areas of their body and mind through participating in active play.

The overarching concept of PlayGym sessions is that learning and moving is done together in a fun way. Sessions promote developing children to be healthy, active and social adults, through providing learning experiences which are open-ended, child-centred, broad-based and include opportunities to develop fundamental movement skills.

Expect these sessions to be full of activities which aid the developing brain; balancing (vestibular stimulation); primitive reflex inhibition; vision; gross motor skills and fundamental movement patterns.

These sessions are 30 minutes and include the Active Attitude instructor bringing along gymnastics equipment for the children to experience.

Beat the Feet:

“Beat the Feet” are themed physical activity sessions for kids. Each session runs for 30 minutes and is presented by an Active Attitude instructor who comes to your Early Childhood Centre. You pick the theme (see list below) and we will deliver a super fun session with music and activities that relate to the theme. The instructor also comes dressed in theme…adding additional entertainment value. We do our best to deliver “exertainment”- that’s exercise and entertainment all rolled into one!

  • Jungle Boogie
  • Farmyard Fitness
  • Under the Sea
  • Outer Space
  • “Beat the Feet” (the original session)

So what are you waiting for? Pick your theme and contact Active Attitude today! We will have your kids beating their feet in no time.

Early Childhood Centres can have either a one off PlayGym or Beat the Feet session, or they can book-in for an 8 week programme. We also have a special rate for those centres who would like to book Active Attitude on a weekly basis throughout the year. Please e-mail ashleigh@activeattitude.co.nz to discuss what may be the best option for your centre.
