“The hands on activities with parents and children have definitely helped the parents in creating an awareness of how exercise affects children’s learning in many ways. At times, parents tend to relate learning solely to class activities in academic areas. Especially as children gets older, they tend to also focus on how in helping children in academic areas. Through this workshop, I believe it has better helped parents to understand the connections between Exercise and Learning (Brain Development)
The activities that are planned for both children and parents, definitely has helped in creating opportunities for parent-child bonding. Through this way, parents are also able to better relate and even apply it easily during the time spent with their children.
The workshop that you’ve conducted has received good reviews. Being in Early Childhood education, while we are always looking into holistic approach in young children’s development, I do personally see there are areas of learning in young children that are less focused such as gross motor activities. Therefore, I would recommend parents to consider your programme. Nowadays, even very young infants and toddlers go for Gym classes, how about these pre-schoolers too.”
