LEARNING THROUGH MOVEMENT
What is Psychomotor Education?
This is my definition:
“Psychomotor education is the learning dialogue between body and mind; it’s the constant exchange between motion and emotion.”
In human nature, perception, movement, and learning are closely intertwined. Through active play, young children (0-6) gain greater awareness of their own body, which instantly feeds their minds.
It Sounds New
Psychomotor education is neither a new educational approach nor an obscure concept with a scary name. It is just the way young people learn autonomously through movement; it is everyone’s first school.
Early educators in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain have been studying psychomotor education in college and designing curriculums that incorporate the psychomotor development of children for over fifty years.
Discover How Psychomotor Education Works
This introductory training program offers practical ideas to discover how children’s bodies and minds develop over time, and inspires new activities to be implemented in nursery schools, daycare centers, preschools, pre-K, and kindergarten.
The program’s goal is understanding how to foster children’s intellectual and social-emotional learning through movement.
Furthermore, you will learn creative ways to integrate psychomotor education into teaching with a special focus on relaxation, self-regulation, and creative interaction with natural, zero-budget materials.
Everyone Learns Through Movement
Several dynamic experiences involving the senses will help you to appreciate and broaden your own systems of perception. This is the way to discover how to enhance both intellectual and social-emotional learning through age-appropriate “forms of play”: sensorimotor play, exploration, symbol-playing, role-playing, pretending and rules-based-play.
Learning is a physical, emotional, and cognitive act. It’s time to make it happen in schools!
