Physical Literacy

As parents of preschoolers we are doing our best to ensure that our children have the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in school and as they grow into adults. In addition to learning how to count, read and write, children need to be taught how to be physically active in a healthy, positive way.

Being physically active later in life depends on feeling confident in an activity setting; and that confidence, as an adult, most often comes from having learned fundamental movement and sport skills as a child. Therefore, to create an active and healthy population ALL Canadian children need a sound foundation of movement and sport skills to build on later in life; and this foundation is called Physical Literacy.
