Moving Smart PMP & Smart Steps Equipment

PMP (Perceptual Motor Programme)

It is not a physical education programme alone, or music, or fitness, or dance, or gymnastics. It is a programme that uses facets of all of the above in order to develop children’s perceptions. The perceptions and judgments that are formed over time help determine how children react to their environment, to others, and to new ideas.
PMP is different because it aims to develop the child rather than the skill. It is not purely a motor programme. It is a perceptual motor programme where language is the key factor in providing the perceptual knowledge about the motor experience. The programme has its roots in the development of language, the gaining of problem-solving skills, and general readiness areas.

In short, refining perceptual judgments prepare the brain for learning.

Smart Steps Programme

Smart Steps maximizes the learning benefits of all that running around time on the playground!

Build the body-brain connection with step-by-step activities that help children develop physical, cognitive, social, and emotional foundations for early learning and school readiness.

Early childhood educators will find clear information on creating the move-to-learn environment, managing safety, and optimising the connections between language development, movement, and readiness for formal learning. An observational tool lets teachers pinpoint children’s specific developmental stages and assess progress.
