Developing physical literacy through quality physical activity
Our kids’ programs provide a friendly, safe and welcoming environment to explore movement. Through providing a quality physical activity experience that focuses on games and play, children develop their physical literacy. We aim to inspire children to play their way to confidence, skill development, fun, teamwork, cooperation, respect and inclusivity. These are all core values of PISE. By building a movement vocabulary through games and play, kids build the foundation to live an active, healthy lifestyle.
Need financial assistance to support a child’s participation? See Play Your Way Grant for information on how we may help.
