ACE is an extended program for PreK and Kindergarten students. Motor Skills is designed to encourage the development of fine and gross motor skills, core strength, sensory stimulation and core development, among other things, all while having FUN!
The class includes fun activities centered on gross and fine motor development with an emphasis on core muscle strength and mid-line development while extending academic goals. Under developed motor skills can negatively affect a student’s behavior and performance in the classroom. A similar program is already being used in some Springfield Public Schools and our goal is to introduce PreK and Kindergarten students to the Motor Skills class so that any weaknesses in their development in these areas can be detected and efforts can be made to strengthen them.
