Winter Class Article 2019
Our article this week is focused on the importance of early education to the development of motor skills. A child’s ability to move is inextricably linked to their abilities to think, feel, and interact with others. The author brilliantly articulates this connection and proposes a global initiative to emphasize movement and motor skills in early schooling.

“Nowadays, there are many research from the fields of medicine, psychology, sociology and education which state that environment, stimuli, care and early education of children have a transcendental impact regarding the way their brain develops. Thus, the more stimulating the environment, more positive connections are formed in the brain and the better the child’s progress is in all aspects of his life in terms of physical, emotional and social development, as well as their ability to express and acquire knowledge.” - Pedro Gil Madrona
We loved this article not only for its detailed explanation of why movement is especially important in early stages of development, but also because the philosophy of learning through “game” recommended by the author is very much in line with the Blooming Bébé methodology. We help our little ones build confidence through movement, using touch, bonding, and play to encourage them to open and explore their senses.
We also found inspiration in Madrona’s proposal to implement movement in early education across the globe. Blooming Bébé is proud to offer an experience that will allow your child to become their very best.
