Home of Sensory & Motor Learning
Neurobics Kids offers your child the opportunity to take part in a brain-boosting play experience. Through specialised movement techniques and sensory integration, children build the neuro-pathways to prepare their brains and bodies for effective learning and efficient day-to-day living. It is a whole-body experience through which children learn to interpret and organise incoming sensory stimuli and regulate their responses, resulting in appropriate, positive behaviour.
Play with Purpose
Through music, specialised movement, equipment and sensory play we have designed an exciting curriculum that will prepare your child for the classroom. Each activity is designed and adapted to the children in the class and is a wonderful experience of brain-boosting play.

An overview of skills
Physical Boost: MOVE TO LEARN
Fitness and integration of the 7 sensory systems enhances the child’s physical capabilities and builds the brain for more complex movements that are coming along.
Cognitive Boost: WIRED TO LEARN
We stimulate braincell growth and enhance neural connections. Building the foundations for success in and outside the classroom.
Social and Emotional Boost: JOY IN LEARNING
Research shows specialised movement grounds the child emotionally and builds confidence in themselves.
Everyone is invited!
Everything in life is experienced through our body movements and sensory systems. It is something that every one of us is doing unconsciously, every minute of every day. And when our sensory systems are working smoothly, life is much easier, we are happier, and we feel confident and successful. When sensory processing is not working smoothly and movement is awkward, life can be much more difficult and children can face learning and/or behavioural challenges. Our philosophy is why wait until there is a problem, let’s help them start off on the right foot.
Children with special needs are welcome, please contact me directly for more info.

An extremely high tolerance for or indifference to pain
