Kinder Joy of moving program in Romania focuses on promoting enjoyable, fun and non-competitive sporting experiences for children. Our aim is to increase each year the number of children that discover the joy of moving, team spirit and active lifestyle and with their help, they register major developments in life skills.
The program is held in partnership with the Romanian Ministry of Education and has reached this year over 48.500 children within 160 schools, with ages between 6 and 12 years old. This year, due to the pandemic situation, only the first phase of the program took place: Kinder Joy of moving Week.
During a full school week, 14-18 June 2021, all PE teachers of participating schools held games provided in the Kinder JOM coaching guide, with focus on making the classes an enjoyable experience for children.
As a novelty this year, a Joy of moving webinar was held the week before the implementation of the program in order to introduce the teachers to the methodology. Official Joy of moving representatives shared their expertise and offered directions for teachers to understand the aim of the program and their role in offering a meaningful experience for children.
