Note: Some of our Children’s programs require a parent or guardian to remain on-site for the duration of the program. 

Physical Literacy

Physical literacy has been identified by experts in physical education, sport, and even cognitive science as a key ingredient in raising healthy, happy and successful children. It provides the foundation for kids to enjoy physical activity and sports, but it also has far-reaching implications for their brain development, scholastic performance, and overall wellbeing. Research shows that it is very important to start developing physical literacy in early childhood prior to adolescence.

The basic recipe for developing physical literacy includes structured and unstructured play opportunities, combined with intentional instruction in fundamental movement skills, such as jumping, skipping, hopping, throwing, catching, etc.

Did you know that The Town of Aurora offers recreation programs that specifically address physical literacy and targeted movement skills? We pride ourselves on being a leader in physical literacy programming.
