What is KIDDO?

KIDDO is a physical literacy program, training and resources developed by the University of WA to provide educators and parents with everything they need to help children aged from 0-8 years to develop the skills and confidence to be physically active. 

KIDDO focuses on developing the capacity of educators in the ECEC sector to deliver physical literacy programs by providing them with the training and all the resources they need in one easily accessible location. KIDDO has been designed in line with the National Quality Standards and Early Years Learning Framework and research conducted around the program has shown that it increases educators’ knowledge and skills to deliver programs that encourage physical literacy as well as improving children’s skills and confidence.

KIDDO will provide at no cost to your early childhood service in 2022:

  • Face-to-face workshops and demonstration sessions in your town
  • Online professional development Certificate in Physical Literacy for all your staff – choose from a 45-minute short course or a full Certificate of Physical Literacy
  • Support and resources to implement the KIDDO physical literacy program in your centre – intentional teaching plans, active play inspirations, skill information, activity database, design your own session tool
  • 100s of physical activity ideas with supporting videos
  • Engaging resources for parents to provide them with support to develop physical literacy at home
  • Access to the KIDDO online fundamental movement assessment and reporting tool


Who can take part?

KIDDO has been funded by Healthway and Lotterywest to enable 950 Early Childhood Education and Care services across Western Australia to participate in the KIDDO program and access all the online training and resources at no cost over 2022 and 2023. This includes:
