Workshop – Gross Motor

 

FITNESS FUN FOR EVERYONE!!!    –   A gross motor workshop for your educators 

There is a lot of pressure on us as caregivers to ensure the children in our care are living active and healthy lifestyles. Our workshops aim to give your staff the tools they need to incorporate physical activity into their daily program.  We promise they will be inspired to go to the next level!

Incorporating these frameworks and standards, but not limited to: Early Years Learning Framework Outcome 3 – Children have a strong sense of well-being. The National Quality Standards Quality Area 2 – Element 2.2.2 – Physical activity is promoted through planned and spontaneous experiences and are appropriate for each child.

  • Physi kids can visit your place of work any time of the day or night!
  • Our workshops can vary in time depending on what your needs are.  Usually 45 to 60 minutes.
  • Games and prizes included!
  • Informative hand-outs for your staff to keep.
  • Certificates personally printed for each person and delivered to you within a week of completing our session.
  • Be warned, your Educators will not be sitting for much of the session. We provide hands on learning, and have found that, like children, our experience is highly improved by involvement.
  • All this for only $220 for up to 15 staff. More than 15 staff will attract an extra fee of $10 per person.
“Thanks for the info night Kayleen, we all learnt so much about making gross motor development fun for the children and had a great time ourselves. As well as being an excellent information evening it was a brilliant team building night. Everybody had a great time and spoke about it for days. We’re all motivated to exercise again. I haven’t laughed that hard in ages!” Hari Kouvidis- Director of Mater Hospital Child Care Centre. May 28 2009. 

“Oh Kayleen – WHAT A GREAT NIGHT. Thank you so very much.  We had a ball and I haven’t laughed that hard for ages.  I think everyone got so much out of the night, lots of information and great ideas.  Everyone will be more confident and certainly be so much more aware of the benefits of Physi Kids. Thanks again.Kylie Barrett -Licensee of Tumbletots Private Day Care. February 2, 2013.

All workshops are run by Kayleen Tolley, owner and manager of Physi kids.

Kayleen has been working as a Physi kids Instructor since 1997. The Physi kids program runs in over 100 child care facilities within Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, and has a child client database of up to 1500 children each year.

After spending her youth as a competitive athlete, with her mind set on becoming a coach at the AIS, Kayleen was sidetracked when an admired mentor asked her to try her hand at working with young children. She went on to study education, and became  a Group Leader at a child care centre in Cleveland. Four years later, the opportunity to work at Physi kids presented itself. Awesome! Now she was able to combine both areas of interest: children and sport! Kayleen worked as a Physi kids Instructor for 6 years, and then took over ownership in 2003.

Kayleen’s qualifications include an Associate Diploma in Education, a Beginning Coaching General Principles Certificate through the Australian Sports Commission, and a Grassroots Australian Football License through the Australian Football Federation. However her qualifications are really secondary to her many years of practical, hands-on experience as a facilitator of children’s gross motor development. Kayleen doesn’t claim to be an expert in her field, but rather has the energy and passion you need to motivate and encourage your Educators.
