Active Kids Learn and Grow Program
The Active Kids Group Learn and Grow team consists of professionally trained fitness, dance, drama and STEM educators. The aim of this program is to deliver classes that build on each child’s natural abilities and interests across these areas through fun, interactive learning experiences.
All programs are delivered across all of our 15 locations and throughout each term, educators and families will receive the lesson plans and the resources that will be used. This enables everyone to become actively involved in the early childhood learning journey.
STEM – Science with Ngan
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM education in our childcare centres is all about teaching children to think critically, problem-solve, and explore the world around them. We have implemented a STEM program with our own dedicated STEM Educator, Ngan, who will attend our 15 childcare locations across Sydney to guide their learning.
Dance and Drama
In the dance and drama program the children delve into a world of imagination and adventure. While they travel in a time machine in search for dinosaurs or become their favourite book characters, they are developing fundamental social and physical skills. In class, the children discuss educational topics that assist in their lifelong learning and explore a variety of their own interests through movement and dramatic performance.
Our fitness program will foster the development of good physical activity habits in children and is composed of 11 sports including: soccer, AFL, basketball, hockey, T-ball, athletics, and gross motor fitness. Physical activity is vital for a child’s development and lay the foundation for a healthy and active life. Children engaging in physical activities are more likely to be active in later childhood through to adulthood.
Our childcare language program has been customized to effectively teach French in Active Kids Group Early Learning Centres, giving young learners a head start in linguistic skills. We make early learning fun through the magic of songs, rhymes, games, and stories in French. Engaging multiple senses at once – sight, sound, and touch – this ensures an immersive experience, making learning not just effective but enjoyable for every child.

What Our PARENTS Are Saying
We are very happy with the learning Alba has had during the first term of Grow and Learn.
I cannot talk about the French class, as Alba is not in on Fridays. Would be great if they could all be Mo-Thu!
We have seen in her more interest and clear improvement in catching/throwing balls, balance, jumping with both feet together, jumping on one foot only, and other fitness competencies. Great job Dani! As an idea, maybe including a sack-race would be fun; I know she has been trying to do it at home and I think she would enjoy the competition with her colleagues.
Laura & Rad
Firstly we feel very fortunate that Archie attends on all three days with these activities.
He loves the dancing and sport classes! Talks about them when he gets home and remembers the names of songs from the dancing.
I think French has only just begun, and he is getting used to it. A little hard to remember all the phrases but the nouns etc he seems to get quite well. I’m sure he will become quite a fan just like the others.
Both of my children have thoroughly enjoyed dance and drama with Miss Sara. They have always come home and openly shared what they did. Being able to use their imagination is so important.
I think the learn and grow program really helps the children. It compliments what the educators are teaching the children.
Kind regards, Judith
My daughter (aged 2.5yrs) has loved Mr Dani’s Fitness classes at daycare! Each evening after the class and of her own accord, she teaches me some of the things she has learnt in Fitness that day. I have seen her confidence and physical skills develop wonderfully over the past term, particularly her balance and throwing & catching. Thank you so much, Mr Dani!
