  • School readiness – Dancing to music in early childhood helps the mind and bodywork as one, assisting child development and intellectual, social-emotional, gross motor, language and literacy skills.

 

  • Communication – Music and dance help 2 – 5-year-olds develop their language through movement. Children learn about meaning, story and emotion through Tiny Movers. They gain a better understanding of themselves and those around them, as they interact with other little ones in the program.

 

  • Self-expression – A mood filter, music has the power to compliment or change a child’s mood in an instant!  Playing music, singing and dancing are extremely important for children’s self-expression; it can calm or soothe. Toddlers and pre-schoolers are sometimes unable to communicate their feelings through words. Tiny Movers provides a healthy outlet for emotions while building self-esteem.

  

  • Physical development – Listening to music and moving helps toddlers and preschoolers not only develop rhythm, they learn to move to a beat. Children become stronger and more flexible as they use their bodies in different ways. Music, stories, props and instruments encourage a sense of fun whilst our class learns gross motor skills such as balancing, jumping, hopping and galloping.

  

  • Creativity – An important aspect of the Tiny Movers program is the wonderful way it fosters creativity in participants. While children are supported to move in different ways, they are encouraged to use their imagination, too.

  

  • Spatial awareness – As children dance, sing and learn to play music, they also understand a lot more about what their bodies can do! Through this early childhood dance program, participants gain the confidence to coordinate and control their bodies. Fun movement helps develop skills in spatial awareness, as children better comprehend their relationship to space.

  

  • Listening and understanding – Children learn life skills through the program while having fun. Learning to listen and interpret body language improves relationships and reduces misunderstandings.

 

  • Social skills and friendship – Tiny Movers provides an early opportunity for your child to learn how to interact with other children, objects and the world around them.

 

  • Self-awareness and self-control – Toddlers and pre-schoolers quickly gain a better understanding of their bodies and themselves as they learn what they can do! The Tiny Movers program assists children to safely express their feelings through movement.

 

  • Health – Tiny Movers is a highly physical, healthy activity involving lots of super fun co-ordination exercises. Regular participation in the program can help improve overall cardiovascular health, correct poor posture and improve muscle tone.
