DevelopMed is a new division of LowMed Health and Sport Performance Centre. The department is run through our Kinderkineticist, Christelle de Jager. We offer age specific programmes designed to promote various aspects of motor development as well as individualized and adjusted programmes (ages 4-13yrs) specially designed according to the unique needs of the child as determined by scientific evaluations, especially for children with physical or motor delays.

Our sport development programme is designed to teach children the basic techniques, rules and skills of various sport types. It is recommended to try out a big variation of sports until the age of 13 years instead of specializing at a young age!

WHAT IS KINDERKINETICS?
