Get Up and Get Moving with our Movement Video Series

Play and movement gives kids a chance to reduce stress throughout the day. Short periods of active movement throughout the day helps to activate the brain and improve cognitive function.

As adults, when we are feeling like a task is too daunting we often get up and stretch or take a short walk. It is the same for our kids. Teacher Valerie, a trained dancer and choreographer, has put together these movement videos to help get your kids up and moving in manageable time segments. It's okay, you can go ahead and join them...after all, it's fun to get up and get moving.

These are items you should be able to find around your house or looking out your window, so you don't even need to worry about putting on your rain boots. Have fun and Happy Hunting.
