Why Movement

Movement increases learning capacities!

Build physical self-confidence.

Teachers and parents have a responsibility to provide plentiful opportunities to engage in a diverse range of movement to strengthen the exercise habits of children.

Joyful, skill-focused movement experiences in the early years are the essential foundation for body awareness, confidence, coordination and sound academic development.

Teach good habits early!

Practice movement skills daily.

Repetition and practice allows physical self-confidence to evolve through mastery.

The body awareness and confidence children gain from high-quality physical education before the age of ten sets them up to thrive mentally, physically and emotionally throughout their lives.

Encourage and inspire!

Move together.

Children become naturally coordinated through outdoor play, rough and tumble, games and sports with friends and walking from one place to another.

Parents and teachers support natural learning by providing basic skill instruction and presenting movement ideas with energy, joy and enthusiasm.

Moving together with children makes an inspiring difference.

Exercise the brain!

Exercise the body.

Learning to move well and with confidence is just as important as learning how to read and write. In fact, they go hand in hand.

In the early years a child’s brain hardwires neural connections which supports cognitive learning and motoric skills as well as coordination, mood and behavior. The physical skills come first and are the foundation for all later learning.

Teach with ease!

Move early and move well.
