Ready Steady Move! leverages the way children learn best – by staying in motion! Purposeful movement allows children to connect concepts to actions and to learn by doing. Researchers have even discovered that children can achieve a fuller and richer understanding of language when it is connected to the movements they make. Our programs are based on this very concept, with movements, games and activities that on the one hand, create healthy, strong, coordinated bodies, while on the other, enable children to learn a new foreign language by using the whole of themselves.
Our dedicated teachers come to us from a variety of fitness and movement backgrounds, including dance, yoga, martial arts and Pilates. They stay in constant training to master the various movement disciplines offered in Ready Steady Move!, with a “Student Always” motto that produces multidisciplinary pedagogues who can inspire children to learn advanced movement techniques while becoming fluent in a foreign language.
Before teaching Ready Steady Move! teachers first take our intense training course, where they learn the methodology and content of the program. Ready Steady Move! teacher trainings are led by qualified movement and language teacher trainers with years of RSM classroom experience.
The Mind Body Connection
It is becoming increasingly clear throughout the world that our minds and bodies are integrally connected with one another and should be developed in tandem. Ready Steady Move! combines the best methods of both Western and Eastern philosophies and disciplines to create a balanced and holistic approach to education.
We can probably all agree that it’s far better to prevent illness, rather than trying to cure it after it occurs. The connection between movement and health has been proven by extensive scientific research or, as we say at Helen Doron, an active body is a learning body is a healthy body. This is one of the main reasons that we encourage children to enjoying moving at an early age, because active children become healthy children who become healthy adults.
