Motor Moms and Dads Program



The Motor Moms and Dads Program is a program used by over 400 elementary schools and pre-schools across Michigan and the United States to help young children ages 3-7 gain the motor skills necessary for academic success. Many children come to school without sufficiently developed motor skills to ensure a good start in school. This program allows all children in a class to improve basic skills in one or two 5-minute sessions per week. Trained parent volunteers work with 3-4 students at a time, supervising as the children work their way through six activity stations.
