The aim of Small Sox is to enhance participation and above all, fun. It is a combination of active play and T-Ball. Small Sox is about Play, Fun and being Active.
During these early years of life it is play, not schedules instruction that contributes the most to our development. The family/wh‚nau has a powerful influencing role within this stage so it is important to support families/wh‚nau in providing enjoyable stimulating opportunities and positive experience that will nurture children’s natural curiosity to be active and to make meaning of their world through movement.
