At Sandringham Children's Centre we run a health and physical education program designed for children aged 3-5 years and catering for children from all backgrounds and abilities. The program is educational as well as being LOADS OF FUN! Our coaches will provide all the required equipment.

The program uses the The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and is structured to achieve five learning outcomes:

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity
  2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  4. Children are confident and involved learners
  5. Children are effective communicators
