Kinderkinetics is a unique & specialized profession that provides a supportive base for early childhood development. Our therapists, who have a passion for children, instruct small groups and individual remedial lessons to overcome delays, and surpass developmental milestones.
The focus lies on maintaining, strengthening, improving and optimising physical and motor skills.
We also focus on the rehabilitation of physical, psycho-motor and neuro-motor deficits, with the goal of optimising your child’s’ wellbeing & development.
Research has proven that there is a relationship between children with motor deficits and low scholastic achievement. During the “window of opportunity”, effective and specific stimulation of different skill sets is critical in building a base for the rest of the child’s developmental years.
Children learn through movement. Fundamental motor skills must be taught, to avoid learning problems in other areas that can surface during middle childhood.
