“We wanted to bring physical education to our weekly program.”

It is crucial for us to remember that it is movement that develops the brain in the first years of life. Exposure to a wide variety of movement experiences in the early years enhances the capacity, structure and function of the brain.

“MoovKids is an amazing program for kids of all ages! Not only does it help to foster physical education, it is also a great tool for parents to help their little ones with all sorts of movement. It is fun. It is simple to follow. It comes with instructions and I can most certainly recommend it highly!”
"Inactivity in children has been a growing problem in recent years. It is a trigger for the emergence of future health problems. How do we get kids moving again?
I love the Moovkids program because it is an effective tool for developing and practicing the fundamental movement skills. I would highly recommend it to everyone who has kids or works with kids to incorporate the much-needed motor activity into their daily lives."
Liesbeth Krebbers, Paediatric Physiotherapist
"We have been attending MoovKids more than five years and our children love it. The MoovKids program has a wide variety of activities and tools that make movement much more interesting and fun for children. Darlene has developed a through curriculum that our teachers are using for physical education. It is easy to use and very well arranged. We definitely recommend that families and daycares join this great program."

Skill Focus Definitions
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.
