Progressive Curriculum

Funday has built a unique curriculum which is different for each age group and has been created in consultation with experts from various sports. Each of our sessions has objectives which build upon the previous session to ensure a high level of learning.

Life skills

Children learn important skills such as resilience, sharing, teamwork, sharing, and sportsmanship, along with enhancing their gross motor skills (running, jumping, throwing, catching), athletic skills (chasing, dodging, body movement, body manipulation) and gymnasium skills (flexibility, core stability, strength) which are crucial in all walks of life, and serve as building blocks for them.

Safety

Child safety is of the utmost importance to us. All the activities are hence carried out in safe locations allowing children to enjoy themselves fully without risk.

Child Friendly Equipments

Children at this age are very ego-centric and the sense of ownership is very important, so we give all the kids their own equipment to play with. We have equipment best suited to the needs of children, and imported from the best available manufacturers from around the world.

Fun

Funday sessions have been designed for maximum enjoyment. When children have fun, they work hard and take on new challenges which accelerates their development process.

Participation

Funday classes are active and participatory. We minimize instruction time, maximize playing time and avoid turn based games. Most of Funday’s activities involve all the children playing at the same time so every child has an opportunity to practice the skill, improve and play. Everyone participates which makes them eager to try more and is given an opportunity to be a star.
