Happy Toddlers is an English Language Kindergarten and we work with children of 3 – 6 years of age.
A very important part of Early Childhood Education is to give children the opportunity to practice physical activities to promote their gross motor skills. Although we make a great effort to support this area, our kindergarten has limited space. Going to Moovkids has been so easy. Darlene has created a friendly atmosphere where children immediately feel inspired and are always eager to do the wide variety of MoovKids activities that she has planned. Darlene has endless ideas, fun tools and a gift to work with little children.
We have already noticed a great change in our children's gross motor abilities and the benefits go beyond that. The children’s confidence in their abilities reflects in other areas as well, especially the social and cognitive areas, not to mention that our children continue practicing English while exercising with her.
We both, staff and parents are very happy with the results.
Thank you Darlene!
Moovkids is a fabulous programme for children of all abilities. The lesson plans are clear, well thought through and easy to follow. Darlene has created a series of videos alongside so that even the most nervous or inexperienced teacher can feel confident that they can successfully implement the programme. Her attention to detail reveals a passion for movement that shines through. Our teachers have loved the ease of using the programme, and the children have benefitted immensely from more movement activities. I highly recommend this programme.

The ability to anticipate and react to changes in balance as the body moves through space. Such as required for tumbling, rotation in flight, jumps, and leaps.
Static Balance is one of the most fundamental movement skills. It is the body's ability to maintain a stationary position with control while performing a task.
Is the awareness of space between oneself and another object or person. It is also the learning of positional vocabulary through using their body to help develop an understanding of direction, distance, and location.
These are movements where the body travels through space from one location to another. Locomotor movements primarily use the feet for support, however, the hands and feet can be used together as well.
These skills are part of the gross motors skills group and involve the use of the hands or feet or any other body part to move or manipulate an object. This could be in the form of throwing, kicking, catching, striking or bouncing.
Axial stability involves any form of movement organized around the axis of the body involving the spine. This can occur in different spatial planes and can include bending, twisting, turning, rolling or stretching.
