At Kids Language Arts, we already know that igniting children's interest and hands-on lessons enhance their learning process. We also know that MOVEMENT ignites areas of the brain as well as improves neuron connections, helps to develop different areas of the brain.Kids learn best when they are able to move while learning, but also and improve their physical ability to focus to learn more effectively. Children's social-emotional well-being is dependent on human to human interactions that build their trust in others, but also learn how to trust themselves, all through well-studied techniques of physical movement methods.

While movement is integrated in academic lessons, movement and dance programs alone are being offered. While performing BARRE, PILATES, DANCE children will practice SHERBORNE developmental movement and PROPRIOCEPTION to promote improves concentration, body coordination, and improve posture boost performance in both academics and sports.

To understand what proprioception is, close your eyes and hold out your hands. Move your arms and hands around. Even with your eyes closed, can you tell how far or close your hands are from your body? That’s your proprioceptive sense at work!

Proprioception is the body awareness sense. It tells us where our body parts are without having to look for them. This helps to know where body parts are relative to each other, which strengthens our coordination skills. It also tells us how much force to use when we’re holding, pushing, pulling, or lifting objects. Proprioception is detected by special receptors in the muscles, tendons, and skin. Those receptors communicate with our brain to tell us where our body parts are in space. It is extremely important that a child develops adequate proprioception by the age of 13, however, it can still be greatly improved even after that age.
