The Early Learning Physical Literacy Project will be implemented in eight inner-city elementary schools, impacting 1,600 students.  Physical literacy of children is a gateway to an active healthy lifestyle. The Early Learning Literacy Project will provide supports that teachers need to develop knowledge and skills to ensure all children are exposed to a quality physical education program and have positive and worthwhile experiences.

It is anticipated that the Early Learning Physical Literacy Project will provide positive outcomes such as:

  • Building confidence, knowledge, skills & abilities of Kindergarten to Grade 3 teachers in delivering on-going quality physical education classes
  • Increased fundamental movement skills in Kindergarten to Grade 3 students.
  • Increased sustainable physical activity in elementary schools at the primary level
  • Students are more excited and engaged in physical education classes
  • Students demonstrate increased participation levels in sports and physical fitness opportunities in school and in the community

Nicky’s favourite part of dance class? The performance! He’s a true showman, relishing the chance to show off all the new skills he’s learned. “It’s definitely the highlight for him,” explains Scott. Nicky is an enthusiastic 10-year-old with Down syndrome, who loves to express himself through movement. The first time Nicky tried his new Wii Dance system, his passion became even clearer and his parents became determined to support him exploring his love of dance. Propeller Dance prides themselves on offering opportunities for all children and was the perfect fit for Nicky. With live music for each and every class, he learned the power of creative movement and expression, including the use of space, time, and composition. And with dancers of all abilities in the same class, the kids in the program must continuously work together, adapt, and learn from one another. The result? A caring and understanding environment where Nicky can thrive and be himself. For four years, Nicky has been learning new ways to be creative, has developing innovative dance moves, and enjoying a new outlet for expressing himself. And just as important, he’s made tons of new friends who he gets to connect with every week. On top of being active and having tons of fun, Nicky’s family has seen many positive changes in other areas of his life. His ability to focus and take instructions have improved and he's learned how to take turns. As a seasoned dance expert, Nicky has become a leader in his class - Bravo! #FEELYOURIMPACT
