Singing, Movement & Play
Peek a Boo Moves is unique as I plan accordingly to the groups likes, abilities, needs and energy adapting the session in session, balancing between dance, movement, play, music, song, art and sensory exploration. I develop activities from the children’s input supporting the bond between child and parent/career, confidence, coordination, world learning, imagination, language and more. I apply my extensive knowledge of dance and the arts, child development, group dynamics to provide fun and engaging sessions.
