Home School Physical Education (PE)
We are all Occupational Therapists who specialise in child development and strucutre activities that allow participation at all levels. It is an evidence based approach to development using movement and play. We work the way children are innately designed to grow.
We see PE as time set aside for skill development. We think that this should be done without competition and the focus we bring is on how one's body is moving. We spend time discovering center of gravity and balance, working on catching, and the co-ordination needed for ball control and activities.
The classes are limited to 16 children at the very most. No one will have to sit and wait their turn.
Join us to
- Develop co-ordination Skills
- Practice balance
- Improve core strength and control
- Practice ball skills - hands and feet
- Have fun in a group
We follow a Sensory -Motor development curriculum that allows a child to experience their body getting stronger and more co-ordinated. If you hear " Mom - Dad look what I can do" we wil have done our job.
Classes: 1 hr long, 8 wks $120 per session. (Dates and times change with the semester. Find this info by clicking the register button)

Tablets and other devices have taken their toll on handwriting as a skill. We are offering to help your child produce legible, well spaced, correctly formed print letters from the start. We train your child's muscle memory not just their eyes and this allows them to both write and type much faster with less frustration. They will be able to concentrate more on what they are writing about rather than spending energy on how to form the letters.
Learning to do this does NOT have to be boring. We use chalk, paint, Play-doh, shaving cream, oobleck, curved pieces of wood, metal spoons, music, movement and the arts to get the fingers to move instead of shoulders. This helps them prepare for actual writing as well as bring their body and brain up to speed for undersatnding the shapes that make letters, capitals and numbers.
We will monitor (and let you know) if your child appears to struggle to write due to:
an underlying perceptual difficulty
- unrefined fine motor skills.
These will be a game changer affecting the rest of their academic lives.
Club: 1/2 hr 1x a week for 12 wks with 1/2 a practice sheet per day.
