Power of Movement Play!

Movement can help children develop, not only motorically but emotionally and socially as well. Their well-being can be greatly enhanced if they are given simple foundations in all areas during their early years. These foundations will carry through as they continue to develop and learn at home and at school. At the Academy of Harpeth Village, the social, communication, emotional, and cognitive skills of children are "exercised" as well as their motor skills. Playing interactive games develops social interaction and communication skills while working on motor development. Problem- solving or cognitive skills such as counting, learning body parts, or identifying colors, are  being used during games. Participation in motor activities with peers who are accepting influence friendship, and the social and emotional growth of all children.
