Welcome to the Mind Moves Institute
School Readiness Course
There is a play deficit in our country and it harms our children. Our children are playing less than any previous generation, and research clearly shows this lack of play is producing profound physical, emotional, social and intellectual problems for today’s kids. We can save play so our children can be fitter, smarter, happier and healthier.
– Darrel Hammond
