Primary Movement Program
Primary Movement Teacher: Jean Sandoval
The goals of the Primary Movement program at Montessori de Terra Linda are to encourage children to develop healthy relationships with one another and the environment, to stimulate their minds and bodies through physical activity, to expose them to the wonders of nature, and to provide opportunities for creative and spontaneous play.
Maria Montessori emphasized the importance of movement for cognitive development. Creative Movement is a joyful way for children to explore movement through music, develop physical skills, channel energy, stimulate imagination and promote creativity.
