“You need to think like a child when engaging with children.”

“There’s a natural way for children to develop their balance system.”

“Children need experiences that involve stamina, resilience, agility, and being able to use their bodies in different ways, move in different ways.”

“Out of frustration comes determination and resilience.”

“Play is the key to children learning about their world."

“Play and outside spaces help children develop their readiness for learning in many different ways.” 

“Movement is the starting point for wiring the brain for learning.”
