The Suzuki School recognizes the importance of providing a structured program for young children to develop an appreciation and love for daily physical movement. Our school prides itself on having a unique Physical Education program with dedicated PE instructors at each campus to work with students as young as 12 months through six years of age. These coaches work with children in each classroom once or twice per week. PE lessons for younger children range from improving gross motor skills to strengthening the child’s core to prep them for sitting up and walking!
As the child grows older, these exercises evolve into more tactile activities that are meant to develop more harmonized hand-eye coordination and the reinforcement of social skills through games and friendly competition. Every lesson in Suzuki Moves is designed to guide children to master of many different skills ranging from socialization to problem solving. Some lessons are meant to help the child develop a finer distinction between fine and gross motor skills. By the end of the program, the child has increased his or her bounds of intelligence and physical environment - fostering a love for a more physical, active lifestyle!
What happens in Suzuki Moves?
Infant Toddler Classes: The Suzuki Moves Program for infants and toddlers is structured to teach these young children to develop a love of learning of physical movement, to strengthen motor and sensory development, and to give children opportunities to grow according to their developmental milestones/benchmarks. The coach works with the children once or twice a week to give each student a physical outlet that allows them to gain confidence.
Early Childhood Classes: The Suzuki Moves Program for primary children is structured to teach students to develop positive attitudes towards themselves and one another through sports activity, to strengthen motor and sensory development, and to give children opportunities to grow according to their developmental milestones/benchmarks. The approach is holistic and child directed, and it gives our students a physical outlet that allows them to gain confidence—which will transfer in all areas of learning.
