“Movement is critical for young children to communicate, grow, learn and explore. It provides children with the oppportunity to share experiences, reflect on these experiences and to explore the world and new ideas. Understanding of the world grows as children’s communication becomes more developed and complex and movement ins the ideal avenue to make this a reality.”
