FeaturedPower Tots – Growing Children Cognitively Through Movement and Play

Child cognitive development from birth needs to be nurtured. Developing cognitive and brain abilities from a young age is essential in a child’s progress, and research shows that the more stimulation young children get in the early years the more chances they have of succeeding later on, so finding activities to support these findings really is a no-brainer (every pun intended).

In today’s high-tech world, where it’s commonplace for children to spend more time on electronic devices or in front of the screen and not moving, it’s even more imperative that parents and caregivers take control when it comes to their development and overall health and wellbeing.

Power Tots, a progressive movement company based in the Washington, D.C. metro area, makes such growth possible. By offering enabling movement classes that are motivating, fun and safe, Power Tots helps children from the age of 12 months to 12 years-old develop physically, mentally, and emotionally while equipping them with healthy habits, a positive attitude, and a good outlook on life from an early age.


Children will enjoy motivating age-appropriate movement classes in the form of dance lessons, gymnastics and yoga, which are offered through schools, childcare centers and various after-school programs throughout the region. As well as developing their physical and mental health, they’ll also be able to build upon and improve their strength, coordination and balance in a fun and stimulating environment with their peers while making new friendships.

The mantra of Power Tots is simple – they believe the power of play rewards. Without even realizing it, children, with the help of certified trainers, can learn more about who they are from a young age and the world in general. Through movement and stimulation, children have the opportunity to take more risks in a safe and supportive environment while building resilience, and most importantly having fun.

Why from such a young age you may wonder? From when a child is born until they become an adolescent, their brain is rapidly developing. In fact, by the age of 6-years-old, 90% of the brain has already developed, which is why it’s crucial to set a firm foundation from the outset. Contrary to popular belief, physical activity outside the classroom doesn’t interfere with a child’s academics; in fact, it’s quite the opposite with research showing that such activities and movements enhance a child’s ability to process, learn, and retain information in other areas of their life.

From simple actions like rolling a ball to being able to walk across a balance beam with ease, children can flourish cognitively. What’s more, it teaches some basic life skills early on like listening, following instruction, focusing, cooperating, and improving social skills. With a “say, see, do” approach, Power Tots caters to all learner types, and therefore this creative cognitive play will give your children the very best start in life.

Taking the whole child into consideration has never been so paramount, and now it’s completely possibly with the power of play and movement and Power Tots. With a proven curriculum that’s delivered in a positive environment, where the needs of the child are put first, children are encouraged to grow and explore at their own pace, meaning no child is ever left behind.

    Wow, great program. Introducing kids early to their physical fitness, coordination, balance, athleticism is starting them off right and will serve them for the rest of their life.

    As a pediatric occupational therapist for 38 years I can’t think of a better program for young children to build sensory motor skills which help to integrate higher level learning skills.
