Julian Harel, co-developer and Teacher Trainer of the unique 'Ready Steady Move' Program, explains why the Family Classes are so popular. "For one thing the kids just love to see their Moms or Dads at play, and being active and happy. 'Ready Steady Move' Family Classes really do create magical moments for parents and children, a time when parents aren't thinking about the daily grind, but are totally involved with their kids."
'Ready Steady Move' was developed by the Helen Doron Educational Franchise Group, pioneers in the field of early English and other quality educational programs for children around the world. 'Ready Steady Move' is available in several different program packages: Kindergartens & Schools Grades 1-3, After-School Classes (held typically in sports centers or community centers), Family Classes (same venues as the After-School Classes), and as a Summer Camp Course, or even for private children's birthday parties.
Julian further explains that 'Ready Steady Move' Family Classes are all about togetherness, exploration and discovery, not 'grill and drill'. It's about parents and children using their bodies in fun and challenging activities designed to make the important connection between body and mind for whole-brain learning that helps enhance physical coordination, strength, flexibility, motor control, memory skills, and receptiveness to language - without long-winded explanations about language learning, or sitting cramped-up memorizing grammar exercises.
Rae Pica, children's physical activity specialist for 26 years and author of 16 books, strongly links literacy and movement. "Today I find that most early childhood professionals are fully aware of the cognitive benefits of movement. They understand that young children need to 'physically experience' concepts in order to truly grasp them. Recent brain research, as well as Howard Gardner's recognition of the bodily/kinesthetic intelligence as a way of learning and knowing, has confirmed this."
Julian comments on the language learning part of the 'Ready Steady Move' program. "The curriculum cleverly builds on children's innate ability to reinforce new language experiences through song, dance, games, yoga for children, Pilates for children and more. Sounds like fun ...well it is! Does it work? You bet! It's a well researched pedagogic fact that if presented in the correct manner, learning through movement and play really sticks!"
Apparently, it's not just the Moms and Dads who are interested in spending quality time with the youngsters during 'Ready Steady Move' Family Classes. Young-at-heart grandparents are also eager to join in. "Doing both the physical activity and learning activity is so important - and I love all the hugs I get from my granddaughter." Mrs. S. Neeman, Grandmother.
In conclusion Julian says, "'Ready-Steady-Move' offers so much, it's like getting the benefits of many programs rolled into one. It provides a well-rounded physical workout that's never boring, integration of both right and left-brain hemispheres for better learning and new language acquisition, and an easy-going, fun atmosphere, where children and parents can bond, and where everyone feels relaxed and encouraged."
