From the day they are born, children begin to experience and learn through movement. Sport Waikato works with parents and service providers to promote the benefits of being active from day one.
Sport Waikato produced the KiwiBaby manual in 1990. This manual has now been converted to an eBook and is offered free to every baby born within the Sport Waikato region. Once parents are registered with Sport Waikato, they will receive access to the eBook series of KiwiBaby manual (for 0-1 year), KiwiToddler manual (for 1-3 years) and the KiwiPreschooler manual (for 3-5 years).
Each manual contains activities linked to the developmental stages of the baby, toddler and young child. The activities are varied and include both fine and gross motor skills, massage techniques and safety aspects of play.
Waikato families can register for the manuals by completing the online registraion form below.
Those outside of this region can purchase through our online shop.
