Introduction to Control

First and foremost, Control is the ability to move deliberately. But more, kids need to be able to modify their movements. So Control is also the ability to adapt and change to achieve your goal. That's tricky enough. But the world is a dynamic place, always moving and changing. Control is the way kids keep up.

Children learn to control their bodies by overcoming obstacles in their path to getting where they want to go.

”Everybody goes down the slide.

I'm going to go up.

Children grow up in a dynamic world that is always moving and changing. This trains the brain to think on its feet.

“The slide is really slippery. 

I’ll take my shoes and socks off.

The slide is really steep. 

I’ll get a running start.

The slide is really high up.

Gee, I’m tired.”


Self-control develops over time as children learn to anticipate change as part of life’s flow.

“Maybe I’ll climb up the railing.



Maybe if I tie a rope to the top?


An open mind begins with embracing change.

"It's good to have friends."

Learning to manage change means giving children the power to control it. That means letting them try in their own way, in their own time. This is the way they learn best... by doing.
