Kinect Kids focuses on the holistic development of children through movement.



Kinect Kids opened at the beginning of 2012 as a kinderkinetics practice, looking to serve the Somerset West, Strand, Gordons Bay and Stellenbosch areas.

I found my passion for working with children during my undergraduate sport science studies, where I learnt the basics of movement and exercise. This lead me to pursue the more specialised field of kinderkinetics, which specifically focuses on the importance of movement in children's growth and development.

With the changes that have been made to the school curriculum, which sees physical education receive more importance,  Kinect Kids looks to bring a more holistic, scientific approach to the development of movement programs for children. I look to get children involved as early as possible in order for them to receive the most benefit. 

 The  Kinect Kids  program looks to reduce the need for remedial therapy later in the child's school career. 


        One of my greatest ambitions is for the child to discover movement through play!
