My 1st Coach
Every child’s first encounter with physical literacy, key movement milestones, health and fitness, are almost always learnt from role-modelling or guidance by the child’s own parents.
Parents’ positive examples and abilities to provide teachable moments at home during these formative years, set the foundation for the inculcation of important character and values, life skills, habits and essential problem-solving skills.
Parents also provide the platforms for every child to discover the joy of learning, acquiring crucial fundamental movement skills and leading an active, healthy lifestyle.
Thus, parents are indeed every child’s First Coaches!
