This week, we have been getting our Tiddlerz to practice some acro skills with the assistance of their Big People. This is part of Brittany and Ashley’s (UniSA Occupational Therapy students) study, which is going to be used to create their resource about gross motor skills for Tiddlerz parents and community.
We’ve seen some fantastic skills from our talented Tiddlerz, and you can check them out in some of the photos below!
The photos help to show how Tiddlerz classes can be a fantastic bonding experience for them and their Big People. The children learn beneficial skills such as balance, coordination and flexibility (as demonstrated by our fantastic Tiddlerz this week). The best part is, you can keep practicing these skills at home during the week!
As well as being great for this engagement aspect, Circus is also a holistic approach to learning, where children learn social and creative skills, in addition to the physical skills. The children learn to explore their surroundings in a safe and comfortable environment, and learn to coordinate their bodies and recognise how they interact with the world around them.
Stay tuned for more updates on our Tiddlerz Classes and the outcome of Brittany and Ashley’s fantastic research project.. We’ll have it on the site so you can download a copy once it’s complete!
