Let’s get moving!
As we read in the article that Ms Valentina wrote a few weeks ago, movement is an integral part of child development, helping with memory, language and attention. How do our youngest ECC students develop their gross motor skills? Here in Pre-Nursery, we love being active, using both our indoor and outdoor space to run, jump and dance. Listening to music is a great way in which we incorporate movement, stretching and dancing to the beat, a good way to wake the body up in the morning and get our blood pumping. It also helps build up our appetite for snack time. Our indoor soft play area is where we can safely practice to balance, which helps us with running and walking, and crawling through tunnels and over blocks. Of course building obstacle courses with our peers is part of the fun!
