Kids Club at Bonnie Doon Centre with Active Kids Academy

The same people that bring you the AWESOME Sportball Edmonton and Red Deer classes have a new and exciting business and they will be the guest at Bonnie Doon’s Kids Club on June 18th!
Active Kids Academy is a new preschool program starting this fall! Their website sums up what they do beautifully:
“Here at Active Kids Academy, we believe that kids should be kids. It is our goal to not only facilitate this, but to give every child the chance to learn in a MOVEMENT based environment. Whether we are teaching reading or writing skills, a lesson in science or geography, or of course sports and movement skills, we believe that children learn best through interactive, guided learning. Every lesson we teach has movement and play based components, and our teachers are all qualified with B.Ed degrees”
At the mall on June 18th, you and your child can experience different games that will have the kids moving, jumping and playing as well as including some number, letter and word recognition aspects to the games. Along with that, they will do some active acting with a story book for the kids to help act out.
This event is FREE to attend and is suitable for all ages! (not just Preschoolers)
