Lower Elementary (Kindergarten - 2nd grade)
Foundational concepts are covered in each of the three areas, focus and attention, self-awareness skills, and kindness strategies for oneself and others. Our goal is to integrate movement, games, social-emotional learning activities where children can develop self-awareness skills and self-regulation abilities. Mindful movement improves concentration and imagination, essential qualities for being successful in school, and boosts self-confidence and self esteem. Our games provide a valuable tool to enhance communication, trust, empathy and teamwork.
Sensory integration and proprioceptive movement (strengthening the bodies feedback system) can help children focus and concentrate as needed. Calming and energizing the nervous system is similar to using the brakes and the accelerator in one's car. By learning how to activate and calm their nervous system, students are able to master finding the appropriate energy level for what is needed during the school day.
