    • The Nurturing Pathways® Program is derived from scientific research on the brain-body connection.
    • Movement is the gateway for learning during a child’s first four years because of its positive impact on development and school readiness.
    • The Nurturing Pathways® curriculum is built upon the “Four Legs for Learning;” bonding and attachment, dance concepts, energy coordination patterns, and sensory pathways.  These pillars support the fact that young children need to move to learn and play to grow.
    • The Nurturing Pathways® curriculum targets age appropriate learning and growth encompassing cognitive, physical, sensory and social-emotional development as well as parent education.
