KIDDO Gippsland is physical activity done differently and is a program every child and their parent can enjoy while learning. We aim to create confident and healthy individuals now and later in life, and invite all parents and caregivers along on the journey with us.

WHAT IS KIDDO?
KIDDO is built around the principles of Physical Literacy, which is about building the skills, knowledge and behaviours to lead active lives.
The Principles are
The skills and fitness a person develops and applies through movement. This includes coordination, balance, flexibility, agility, strength, endurance and reaction time.
The attitudes and emotions a person has towards movement and the impact they have on their confidence and motivation to move. This includes confidence, motivation, self-perception, and self-regulation of emotions.
A person’s interaction with others in relation to movement. This includes relationships, collaboration, ethics, and culture in society.
A person’s understanding of how, why and when they move. This includes safety and risk, rules, reasoning, strategy and planning, perceptual awareness and tactics.
