The Program

When an Occupational Therapist and a PE Teacher saw first-hand an increasing number of children entering school without the fundamental skills needed to optimise their learning development, they decided to do something about it.

They aimed to develop a perceptual, holistic and movement-based learning program to work on the fundamental motor skills that a child needs in the early years of their schooling.

The Move Learn Grow program assists in integrating left and right brain functions, actively works on integrating primitive reflexes, provides sensory integration techniques, develops coordination and motor planning, promotes visual skills, furthers language and social skills and enhances working memory, literacy, numeracy, and executive functioning.

The program begins with a standardised Motor Skill Collective Assessment to determine any gaps or challenges in motor development for each participant. This is followed by sessions that start with a fine motor skill and exploratory play, then set stations designed to work on skills that are essential to every child.
