Active Early Learning Curriculum
We are pleased to announce the launch of Active Early Learning across all Edge centres!
The Active Early Learning Curriculum has been developed by the experts at the Australian College of Physical Literacy (ACPL). We are so pleased to be embedding this curriculum into our education program, after taking part in the initial Physical Literacy study, where we saw significant benefits in the areas of movement, resilience, concentration and engagement.
Healthier, Fitter and Smarter Children
Our physical literacy program has been developed to inspire your child’s confidence, concentration, social skills and learning ability.
