Kide Expands Even Further into Engaging Physical Education

Kide is adding play and stories to creative, movement activities alongside Kids Collab: an educational platform teaching young children how to get active and healthy.

Kide Science is continuing to extend their play and story-driven lessons to new topics; in addition to their original focus on STEAM subjects.

Now, as part of an exciting collaboration announced, Kide is adding play and stories to creative movement activities alongside Kids Collab: an educational platform teaching young children how to get active and healthy. 

"This partnership is the natural next step for Kide’s exploration past traditional STEAM and into all Early Years subject areas where play and stories significantly promote children’s ability to learn and engage," said Kide CEO and co-founder Sari Hurme-Mehtälä.  "With our partnerships, we’ve accomplished tackling literacy, jumped into a hit Netflix show, and now it’s exciting that with Kids Collab we can teach little ones about movement and motion."

“Children learn effectively through play and exploration. Problem-solving, stories, and play drive learning – and with these tools we can make physical education more meaningful for children.” says Dr. Jenni Vartiainen, Co-Founder and Head of Research at Kide.  “Recent studies highlight the importance of physical activity and play-based learning for children’s physical and mental well-being. These are really powerful in early childhood, so this collaboration is especially important.” 

"We are really excited to see how the powerful teaching methods of Kide and our goal of getting kids moving mindfully work together ” said  Co-Founder and Director Rachel McMahon at Kids Collab. “These lesson plans are not only fabulous for learning, but also just genuinely fun and educational for the little ones.”

The Kids Collab bundle includes lesson plans that aim to teach children physical literacy. Children will get motivated to be active, build confidence, move with purpose, and harness creativity through movements – all of which set children up with the right attitude about being active. We’ve made a bundle of lessons especially for Kids Collab that you can find here.
