Our program is based on an energetic child development model that addresses the unique character traits, learning style, and energy level of each child. Fidgets2Widgets honors a child’s natural way of being in the world while helping them progress through the developmental stages of middle childhood. We strive to meet the holistic needs—physical, emotional, motivational, social, expressive, and intellectual—of each child.
Twenty-first century kids can tolerate and absorb an amazing amount of sensory information and stimulation. Their minds move quickly, their attention spans can be short, and they do best when taking information in small bytes. In addition, all children have enormous amounts of physical energy. F2W is designed to accommodate both the internal and external high- energy needs of children.
Today the world is literally at our fingertips. Adults communicate with each other through texting and social media, learn through programs on personal and work computers, and read books on e-readers. Our children are no different. From infancy, they are exposed to and inundated by these high technology devices. At F2W we strike a healthy balance between the physical, the sedentary, and the intellectual. We utilize technologies that enrich daily learning experience and stay active with our Wii and Kinect sporting devices. We nourish children’s spirit through music on our iPods and books on our iPads and Kindles.
