Kinder Tennis isn’t just fun. It’s a great way to nurture the development of fundamental perceptual and motor skills (FPMS). Ages 2-6 are crucial in developing these skills.
In a Kinder Tennis program, children will learn:
These skills are of paramount importance to children of this age as they are required for them to engage in age-appropriate activities such as drawing, craft, puzzles, opening lunch boxes, running and accessing the playground. Our program is entirely inclusive of all abilities. Charlie works closely with leading allied health professionals to tailor programs to allow anyone to be able to participate and benefit.
Kinder Tennis is designed to meet the criteria of the VEYLD Framework.
Our weekly program assists in achieving the following criteria from the VEYLDF:
“With increasing physical mobility comes greater opportunity to explore and experience the world. Outdoor play promotes children’s physical and cognitive development and their ability to assess risk.”
Kinder Tennis is much more than teaching children how to play tennis. It also encompasses risk assessment and facilitates cognitive development in a safe, play-based environment.
“From birth to eight years, children continually acquire, refine and consolidate their motor functions and skills and integrate their skills across domains.”
This is something we understand and are constantly aware of and underpins our business philosophies. Our program gives children a plethora of ways to acquire and consolidate motor functions within the sport of tennis. We find this is the best way of implementing and refining the skills as the majority of the time, it is “playing”.
