First Moves Matter

First Moves Matter Professional Learning picture

Making Neurodevelopmental Theory Real in Early Years Education and Care. 

This is a professional learning opportunity offered to Early Years Professionals including Educators, Case Workers, Counsellors, Allied Health Care Practitioners and Community members.  It is part of our ‘Body to Brain Learning Professional Development Series.’ 


“The first three years of life, and the movements we make, lay the foundations for later learning and functional success.  It’s neurodevelopment in action, and we have a front row seat.  In fact, we can help direct it.    

Learn HOW movement, experience and opportunity in the early years primes a child’s brain for learning.  ‘First Moves Matter’TM is neuroscience mixed in with practical activities to foster neuro-motor and sensory development in our young children.”  

[Christine Payard (PhD), Director Integrating Thinking.]
