LEAP BC’s Hop family resource

The Hop Family Resource
encourages physical movement, verbal activities, early literacy, and healthy eating. The resource helps children (3–5 years) learn through active play. It offers 40 activities that address physical activity, literacy, and healthy eating, as well as a number of interactive “Let’s make” exercises to further enhance development.

Each activity outlines how it benefits the child. The directions include necessary equipment, location, safety tips, and notes on additional resources – all in an easy-to-follow format.

The physical activity section promotes active, vigorous play that enhances movement skills, supports learning and social development, and allows for creativity and self-expression. The literacy section supports activity with communication to enhance vocabulary, counting, and other creative endeavours. The healthy eating section introduces the child to a range of healthy food and food-related activities.

LEAP BC was created by 2010 Legacies Now, with support from the Province of B.C., to help foster healthy child development.

  1. Hello – I have recently taken over in a program in Hope BC that has many many hop binders and a big bag a fun resources and equipment. Is there someone who would give a presentation regarding the use of all the great resources? Can we just hand out the binders to parents?

  2. Hi there! I was wondering if you still provided booklets and pamphlets to hand out to parents and families. If so, I would love to have some sent my way for the Supported Child Development Program.

    Thank you!

  3. Hello! This is William from The Nanaimo Men’s Resource Centre. I was hoping you could send some booklets and pamphlets our way to provide in our office? He have a few booklets in our office left, but it would help to restock and maybe get some current up to date items you have any over there. We would love to support your movement.

    Let me know if you can help.

    Thank you for your time!
