In Hungary like elsewhere, children spend too much time watching television or sitting in front of a computer. Also because of the reduction in Phys. Ed lessons in schools, parents are enthused about enrolling their children in a fun all-inclusive movement class that also helps them practice English.

'An Active Body is a Learning Body' is the motto of Ready-Steady-Move! Worldwide research in child development supports the premise that children learn best through active involvement, and that language acquisition is actually reinforced through movement. Children in a Ready-Steady-Move lesson move 'over', 'under', 'around', ''beside', and 'near' objects - so these words actually take on a concrete meaning for them. While performing organized movements as in dance or yoga, children utilize many different learning modes in the brain: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, rhythmic, vocal, mnemonic, and creative. Ready-Steady-Move also emphasizes the music and rhythm of language, so children can joyously participate in its physical expression.
The internationally renowned Helen Doron Educational Franchise Group, in operation since 1985, developed the Ready-Steady-Move program, methodologies and materials. British-born Helen Doron, founder and CEO points out that "Ready-Steady-Move lessons promote the vital 'Mind-Body Connection' in children's brains - stimulating both right and left side brain functions for increased learning abilities, along with better physical health." She further relates that learning through physical experiences has greater meaning for children. "Comprehension is immediate and long-lasting because this type of learning creates more neural networks in the child's brain." Helen adds, "Another reason is that it's simply more fun - just watch children in a Ready-Steady-Move lesson! " http://www.ready-steady-move.com/video.php
The Ready-Steady-Move program is very popular with parents, children and teachers alike in currently franchised countries, Israel and Italy. Ready-Steady-Move has been recently introduced into Hungary, by Klara Kiss, a Master Franchisor with many years experience in the field of early education and kindergarten management. As the Ready-Steady-Move National Franchisor for Hungary, Klara feels that her country really needs this program. "In Hungary like elsewhere, children spend too much time watching television or sitting in front of a computer. Also because of the reduction in Phys. Ed lessons in schools, parents are enthused about enrolling their children in a fun all-inclusive movement class that also helps them practice English." Klara is confident about the future. "We plan to run Ready-Steady-Move in Budapest and the larger cities the first year, with a projected target of 1000-2000 children; hopefully doubling or even tripling that number in the coming year."
Andrea Lange-Raz, Ready-Steady-Move Program Manager explains why Ready-Steady-Move teachers are so exceptional. "Our teachers are qualified movement specialists, incorporating activities based on yoga, martial arts and dance techniques. They also have a proficiency in the target language and most importantly, a sincere wish to better children's lives." Andrea explains the process. "Ready-Steady-Move is a quality program, and candidate teachers undergo an intensive 2-3 day training seminar to receive certification. They also receive plenty of non-stop, ongoing support and updates, to make sure they keep on doing their very best."
