About Course

This introductory course demonstrates the influence of motor development and its impact on learning and behaviours. Increasing scientific evidence shows that physical activities and improved motor skills influence emotional regulation, behaviour and the academics.


This workshop provides learners with an understanding of children from the Neuromotor perspective. They will develop an awareness of the effects of attention, balance and coordination on children’s behaviour and readiness for learning and participation in a group setting.


Note: In-person lessons for this course will resume for the upcoming intakes. This is subject to prevailing COVID-19 measures implemented by the government. Should there be any changes, students will be notified at least 1 week to the commencement of the respective intakes.
