Parents

As a parent, you only want the best for your child – health, success, and a good life. Ready Steady Move! helps set children up for success by teaching them the basics of physical fitness, encouraging good health, and opening their minds to new learning.

Ready Steady Move! is a unique language and movement course for children ages 4 to 8. It teaches children basic physical fitness techniques through exercise routines derived from a variety of movement disciplines: dance, martial arts, yoga and Pilates. The routines are designed to promote overall health and fitness.

Along with fitness, Ready Steady Move! also gives children an introduction to a second language. The course uses the movement routines to introduce an active vocabulary of 360 words in one of six target languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Hebrew or Mandarin. Vocabulary is presented in the context of the exercise, with pictures and songs to reinforce the meaning. The combination of physical activity and language learning works because the physical activity of the movement routines helps activate the brain, making children more alert and more receptive to learning.

Ready Steady Move! teachers are qualified movement instructors, with a working knowledge of the target language.
