The global curriculum for preschoolers is conceptualised on the aims and objectives of physical education for that age. The primary goal of a curriculum, including preschool physical education, is to fulfil basic needs, in order to satisfy various biotic and civil needs, but at the same time it is a crucial factor of growth, development of all personality traits and abilities, especially those that can be influenced in childhood, including the child’s overall health. Secondary objectives influence the anthropological characteristics of a child and affect behaviour through education. By making the right choices and evaluating modules and topics, we create adequate conditions for healthy growth and development, which is marked with significant anthropological changes at that age:
- influence the regular growth of muscles
- particularly encourage the work of both cardiovascular and respiratory systems, whose disproportion at that age causes fatigue and requires a longer body recovery
- influence all motor abilities with a special weight placed on coordination and flexibility
- encourage the formation of positive social dimensions

A Ukrainian ballet choreographer and his wife, a ballet dancer, hold ballet lessons for boys and girls twice a week in a specially equipped ballet hall. We display our accomplishments during class presentations and our yearly Christmas show.
To our great satisfaction, our school has an enclosed swimming pool (dimensions 16m x 6m), where we can enjoy swimming and playing. Swimming lessons are held twice a week by two swimming coaches who help us overcome any fear of water, teaching us to swim, exercise, and at the same time develop our muscles in the healthiest way possible.
OUTDOOR AND INDOOR SPORTS COURTS
Football, basketball and handball courts are available for all ball activities. In addition, they are also used for other games, for instance games with singing, general preparatory exercises, morning gymnastics, hula hoops and similar games. Our preschool teachers prepare challenging polygons, both outdoors and indoors, as well as various competitive games to enjoy.
