Pre-Writing and Daily Living Skills

Before kids can put on their own jacket, write their own name, or confidently play at the playground without your support, they need to build their fine and gross motor skills. This workshop is all about your child's physical development.

Who's this for?

Our workshops are designed for ALL parents. Knowing a little bit about what is going on in your child’s brain, and how as a parent you can invest in your child’s physical development is important. 

This workshop will be a game changer if:

You have a kid who loves to move and you need new creative ways to keep them busy (and learning).

You want to make sure your child is set up and ready for school so that they can write their own names, open their own snack containers and participate fully in their classroom community.

Your child is a little bit behind in any of their motor milestones and you want to support them at home.

Your child has a diagnosis like Cerebral Palsy and you’re supplementing their intervention at home.

What you'll learn:

Why is motor development important

What activities you can do with your baby RIGHT from birth

The skills your child needs before they are able to learn to write

What fine and gross motor skills your child should be working on

Hear it from them :)

"I now understand why and how certain activities can help shape my son's development (even from a young age). I've gained the confidence to parent with more intention and highly recommend this workshop.”

"The social stories are going to help us so much!! So many of our struggles stem from stalling or not so fun behaviours to avoid doing what is asked of them. Implementing this immediately!"


"I found this so helpful with tips for my kiddo with Autism, and the play-based skill development is so approachable even for kids with different needs."
