DID YOU KNOW?
Children need to repeat movements thousands of times in many different ways to master and gain confidence.
Movement is as natural to children as breathing and almost as essential.
The Monkeynastix programme provides children with a myriad of different movement experiences in different contexts in order for them to discover the unlimited possibilities that exist in physical activity.
Today’s children are not moving nearly as much as previous generations. Modem living, easy access to fast food, television and computers all contribute to the fact that children are more passive, generally overweight and in many cases obese.
