Music classes at Hilltops are run by Jane Terblanche of Musikgarten.
Playball classes take place on a Wednesday for all Parrot and Treefrog children. This is included in the fees.
Playball offers a multi-skill programme of sports activities, fundamental movement skills and games for children age 2- 8. The programmes are age specific and the curriculums follow a progressive pathway from the basic building blocks of jumping, throwing, rolling, hitting, catching, kicking to learning a variety of sports skills, to having fun with mini games of tennis, hockey, cricket, football, basketball, baseball, volleyball and much more!
The action-packed lessons will immerse your child in fun, age appropriate, high quality games and activities, ensuring that they have a positive experience and enjoy every minute of being physically active!
Playball children engage in activities which promote a positive self image, encourage persistance and strengthen the desire to want to challenge oneself. The continous scientific study behind Playball shows that the type of activities the children take part in accelerate the neural pathway development between the brain and the body. This has a marked impact on how children will perform cognitively as well as physically at school.
Today's children spend far less time outdoors playing and too much time in front of the television and computer. While these mediums have their benefits they also have an adverse effect on the child's social and physical well being and development. Educators and Occupational Therapists are becoming more aware of the important role played by movement in the development of the growing child.
ActionBall is a Movement development program aimed at developing muscle tone and physical development in young children but with the emphasis on having fun and learning how to play, encouraging social skills, team work and good sportsmanship.
We offer Actionball at Hilltops Preschool on a Tuesday morning as an optional extra for the Tiggers and Jungle Room classes. Please fill out and send us the form if you would like your child to participate. Find the application form here.
