Back by popular demand! Extended information from last time!
Jennifer will be offering an interactive presentation on developing an integrative movement-based early childhood program. Key topics will include developing the sensory-motor system and integrating residual reflexes. We will explore how to use these activities to help children meet the required standards. This is an opportunity to explore the importance of movement-based learning and how to effectively and efficiently weave developmental movement activities into the daily life of the classroom.
