Petites Programme for 3.5yrs- 5yrs Level 2

To quote Isadora Duncan, "Let us first teach little children to breathe, to vibrate, to feel and to become one with the general harmony and movement of nature. Let us first produce a beautiful human being, a dancing child"   Young children love to move, running, turning, sliding, swinging, illustrates the necessity of movement for their wellbeing and contentment. Not only does movement help children to feel good about themselves, it helps them to learn.

Through movement, children develop their bodies, their minds, their confidence and their ability to communicate and express themselves. Young children are learning all the time, and in the early years most of their learning is connected to movement. Early exposure to developmentally appropriate movement activities in an instructional environment, can help children to acquire skills and attitudes that are necessary for future participation in physical activity. Active children can develop into active and healthy adults, enjoying the physical and social benefits that participation in dance can bring

This programme has been designed to address young children's cognitive, motor and affective emotional and social development. It is a fusion of movement, creativity, expression and musicality elements.

The Goals for the Programme are:

  • To enhance children's movement abilities and physical fitness;
