Extensive research into early childhood education, and many years of practical experience have been combined into Catrobatkidz programme.

Learning to Move - Moving to Learn

It is during these fundamental years that window periods open and close during which your child has the opportunity to develop each skill to the best of their ability, in order to build a solid foundation that will allow them to achieve both physically and mentally throughout their life.

• Balance
• Locomotion
• Gross & Fine motor skills
• Spatial relationships
• Co-ordination
• Rhythm & Timing
• Strength
• Flexibility

Documented fact: Children (and most adults) learn best through “doing” How often have you begun to show your child how to perform a new task or skill, and you are barely halfway through when he or she begs “Let me try”. A growing child constantly tests his or her physical abilities and takes delight in progress: “Look how far I can stretch”, “Look how high I can jump”, and “Look how fast I can run”

Catrobatkidz provides a safe, positive, fun-filled forum for your child to develop his/her 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, and touch) are the core elements of Catrobatkidz lesson plans.

Why your child should do Catrobatkidz:

Most opportunities for spontaneous physical development have been lost.

Not so long ago, children exercised naturally through the day - they walked or rode bikes to school, did the same going home, then roamed the neighbourhood between friends homes, went into the veld and played hide and seek, climbed trees, etc. - as long as they were home before dark, no-one worried. Sadly, today the scenario is very different - children are transported everywhere by car, encouraged to stay inside where it is safe, and with the advent of TV, computers, play station etc., who wants to be outside running around anyway?


How will Catrobatkidz benefit your child?

Reading and Writing skills require brain integration and physical co-ordination.
• Your child will discover new ways to move and exercise each week.
• Imagine the benefits of a full half hour devoted to movement!
Rhythm plays an important part in reading skills - each week the lesson will include movement to music.
Controlling his body and movement is a wonderful way to develop a child’s self-discipline and self-confidence.
• Basic gym positions are learned and practiced throughout the year.
• Development of eye-hand and eye-foot co-ordination will ensure your child is ready to participate in any sport of his choice in Primary School.
FUN - life and learning should be fun.
• Lesson plans are pre-planned and each week provides many challenges and ongoing stimulation.
• Each lesson is planned around different equipment and apparatus.
• A child who has self-confidence will be able to tackle any task or situation.
• At Catrobatkidz everyone is a winner Each child is developing at his or her own pace, and performs the lesson tasks to the best of his/her ability.
• You will receive regular age specific assessment reports identifying each specific area of development and your child’s progress.
• At the end of the year, children who have participated in the program receive a medal and a certificate for their achievements at the Catrobatkidz Year End Ceremony.

Any of you who exercise regularly know the benefits associated with it - good physical health, stress release and a general feeling of well-being and a good self-image. At Catrobatskidz we aim to develop a love for physical exercise and a healthy lifestyle in each child who participates in the programmme.
