For 30 years the program has developed a formidable reputation for delivering quality to parents and children. Over 30,000 children and their parents attend a KindyROO session each week.
Dr Frances Glascoe, a world leader in early childhood development, who is the author of PEDS which has been rolled out Nationwide by Maternal Child Health Centres, is a pro-bono patron of KindyROO because she loves what the program offers parents, especially dads.
The American Academy of Paediatrics Developmental and Behavioural journal published a four page article describing the program positively and giving it the tag "An innovative Australian approach".
Initially based on practical experience and observation, and positive outcomes for early implementations, today after 30 years, there is significant empirical research validating many aspects of the underlying KindyROO Rationale.
FUN & LEARNING! KindyROO’s activity classes are all about fun and learning! Children can climb, swing, tumble, dance and sing their way to a healthy brain and body in readiness for later school learning.
JUST ASK AROUND: KindyROO is highly recommended by many health professionals, including Paediatricians, Child Health Nurses, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Paediatric Osteopaths and Paediatric Chiropractors.
At KindyROO we do not advocate avoiding modern medical advice; rather we help to show you ways in which you can still enable your baby to experience those important movement and sensory opportunities necessary for healthy brain and body development.
80% of brain development occurs in the first year of life, 90% by the age of four. Experiences a child has in the first years lay the foundation for life.
