School
Readiness

Take our 3 Part School Readiness Online Course, and learn that a child thrives when everyday living is an interactive game between a caring adult & child.

Reading
Readiness

Learn the required pre-reading skills that are needed before a child is ready to learn to read, building a playful bridge from listening and speaking to reading.

Neuro
Dynamix

For parents and teachers working with learners with barriers to learning in situations where there is a lack of funds or the lack of access to therapy.

Let's work together

At the Mind Moves Institute our approach to school readiness is not a checklist or a time sheet to tick off, it is a journey. A journey of thousands of experiences to be enjoyed, skills to be developed and knowledge to be discovered along the way to school readiness.

Neuro Dynamix Remedial Obstacle Courses

Facilitate the integration of the senses and muscles with the brain. We will enable you to design remedial obstacles with this specific aim in mind.

The abc’s have no meaning other than within a word. When learners learn to hear the first sound in a word and then write the letter that represents that sound correctly in Grade R, then they learn to read with ease in Grade 1.

I was completely blown away by the practicality of the course. This is such a powerful tool to use in schools. It is specifically designed to support learners, but to also assist teachers. Thank you Mind Moves Institute and Dr De Jager. This has enriched my life and I can’t wait to start!

Happy teachers

Thank you for this course! It has truly encouraged me and gave me hope to help my learners more effectively. It also encouraged me to continue taking my learners outside even if it might seem wasteful or crazy to others.

Dankie weereens vir n uitmuntende program wat julle bied vir onderwysers sowel as vir ouers. Die kurrikilums is vandag so gefokus op die thinking brain dat die ontdekking van hulle liggaampies en bewegings heeltemal agterwee gelaat word. Ek is so dankbaar vir die program en dat dit my weer gewys en geleer het van die belangrikheid van die groot motoriese, fyn motoriese ontwikkeling en die vestibulere stelsel.
