We at Xtreme Gymnastics know how incredibly active preschoolers are – they almost never seem to tire. Their love of jumping, running, and climbing makes this phase of development perfect for encouraging healthy habits. Doing so will help them grow, strengthen their muscles, enhance their motor skills, and even produce more balanced behavior. The secret to gaining all of this is all in having fun.
Movement has a meaningful connection to early childhood learning and brain development. Several studies have shown that when a child crawls, tumbles, climbs, rolls, etc., the brain becomes more fibrous, creating a higher capacity for learning.
Who knew a set of blocks could hold such power? Yet not every parent understands the importance of block play in their children’s development. In fact, working with blocks encourages improvement in intellectual, developmental, physical, social-emotional, and language abilities.
When it comes to good health and quality of life in general, balance is a must. To ensure that young children can efficiently maintain their equilibrium, they need plenty of practice controlling posture and regulating their center of mass.
