New kids play program

A new free-play program, for children aged up to five years, is coming to Canterbury-Bankstown.

MIISC Kids will start on Monday 7 May and be held at the Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre (MIISC) every Monday and Wednesday during school terms, from 9.30-11.30am.

It will have a range of different activities set up for children to enjoy and practice their gross motor skills, including:

  • Bowling;
  • Basketball;
  • Soccer;
  • Tee ball;
  • Skipping;
  • Tennis;
  • Volleyball;
  • Balancing equipment;
  • Jumping equipment;
  • Throwing and catching areas; and
  • Crawling areas.

Entry is $4.50 per child, with children aged under six months, free. Parents are welcome to participate with their child, or enjoy a coffee or snack at the newly renovated MIISC Café, from only $2.

Mother of two, Isidora Nedelkovska, who was part of a test run, welcomed the new program.

"I can have my 16-month-old and four-year-old participating in different areas. It’s a safe space and I know they can’t run off," Ms Nedelkovska said.

"Even better is, I can easily see them both while having a coffee with friends."

Mayor, Khal Asfour, said it was important for Council to continue promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, from a young age.

"Residents recently identified being ‘healthy and active’ as one of the seven key areas where Council needs to focus on over the next 10 years," Mayor Asfour said.

"Programs like MIISC Kids introduce children to physical activity in their early years, so they will more likely continue as they get older."

Other Council commitments to promoting a healthy and active lifestyle include:

  • Providing and maintaining libraries, sporting facilities, parks, off–leash dog areas, golf courses, leisure and aquatic centres, playgrounds and shade, and cycling and walking tracks;
  • Providing and sponsoring sporting and healthy lifestyle programs;
  • Providing Learn to Swim classes, and other aquatic and fitness programs;
  • Installing fitness equipment in parks; and
  • Advocating for better schools, hospitals, and sport and recreation services and facilities.
