About the Provider

Description: Learning In Motion is dedicated to providing brain compatible learning to ensure the best possible development of the child’s intellectual, physical, social, and emotional well being. The program emphasizes active movement, self-expression, and life skills. We offer a child-centered, high energy learning environment that allows thinking and learning to be anchored by movement. Our philosophy is that children learn best when they are in a safe, fun, nurturing environment; here the brain can develop and learn. Stress affects children and their learning; therefore our teachers work hard to foster the child’s sense of confidence and self-esteem. Physically active, healthy kids learn better! This is why our teachers prepare active-movement oriented lessons that are fun and Intellectually enriching.

not impressed Aug 16, 2013

Went recently to a vpk orientation meeting that the school held. They were extremely unorganized, no one from the school was on site early to assure that the conference room was ready. All parents and their children had to wait in the hall ways for the room to be prepared. Once everyone walked in, two women stood in the front of the group and started talking about the attendance policy before properly introducing themselves and allowing the new first time familys understand who they were. Mid way through they realized no one (of the new families) had any idea who they were and what their functions at the school were. The owner kept cutting off one of the vpk teachers when she was presenting herself. It got so bad that she gave up and walked to the rear of the room and took a seat. Though she was polite, the teachers body language and facial expressions spoke volumes on what her relationship with the owner stood. They also introduced a new teacher that joined their school two months ago. She had no clue what was going on, could not give an insite of what she had to offer to the school and children, she just stood that stating she was a georgia peach gal. THe other teacher called out the name of her students and asked the parents to meet with her at the rear of the room, she had their foldiers and items ready to go over with her students. The new teacher didn't do anything the folders for her class were on a table, get them if you want, did not interact with parents or her soon to be students. They also stated that parents could go on field trips, but their body language indicated they were not. I believe field trips are inportant but that every week you are taking childern out of the class room enviornment (which is 3 hours a day mind you) is a waste of precious time. They had a spanish teacher who left so now one of the perks of the school was to have spanish taught to the young ones is gone. They supposedly said they had a meal program now they stated they no longer did and that the meals you send your child with to eat are not to be heated, to be eaten cold. They have only one microwave in the entire facility and that they couldn't be tasked with heating food for all their children. Other preschools have microwaves in each class room for their teachers to warm their students meals, what is so hard of that? No nap time, its a put your head down on a table for 20 mintues? What happened to nap time? It is important for young minds to rest so that they can grasp more learning. I came to the school because of the ratings and reviews, but I honestly felt lost at that orientation, I left with more questions then I had when I walked in. THe fact that the new teacher was unprepared unorganized and simply put lost in the sauce chilled my expectations and outlook for this group. I checked out another school near by and was impressed with their school, mission, and attentiveness. They took the time to make my child feel welcomed and the teacher in that location was incredible no comparison to the new teacher they hired at learning in motion. Maybe I am jumping the gun, perhaps she will be a good teacher in the year to come, but frankly I was not sold, not impressed and very upset with the lack of organization and dedication to the new students at this parent orientation for vpk. I am vpk shopping, and checking out another institution, I feel my child will not be happy at learning in motion.
