As we move into another month of Distance Learning, adding in purposeful movement to daily activities is becoming even more important. Movement is necessary in the growth and development of children because it helps build a stronger brain and supports emotional stability. However, not just ANY movement is beneficial. In the S.M.A.R.T. program, children are exposed to purposeful, specific movement designed to stimulate and mature areas of the brain necessary for academic success. As parents are at home helping their children with Distance Learning, it’s important to share the reasons behind the movements. We invite you to watch this video, S.M.A.R.T. in Action, to see an overview of the program.
