    StrongStart and PISE Physical Literacy Fridays
    by Carolynn Ablitt - Wednesday, 11 October 2017, 3:36 PM

    PISE leaders will be facilitating games and play based activities for children and parents/caregivers from 10:15 to 11:00am each Friday morning. The games and activities are designed to improve movement skills in the children in a fun and engaging way, while showcasing to parents/caregivers different activities that can be done at home. Activities will take place in the StrongStart room, as well as the occasional trip outside to move around in a larger space and engage in a different environment. All ages and abilities are welcome to join in with the games, and please feel free to ask the PISE leaders for adaptations to games in order to engage your child in movement.
