Dy-No, Encouraging childhood dynamic balance
Early childhood physical activity is paramount to the growth of health, education and social interaction within children of all ages. The vestibular system, although not as well-known as other biological systems, is the most critical sensory system in relation to motor skill development and physical movement. Activation of the vestibular sensory system through balance and motion has proven to be beneficial to children both physiologically and neurologically. The Dy-No project is a result of an exploration into how a dynamic balance focused environment can provide a rich play based education which will greatly enhance academic pursuits and improve physical growth and well being in early childhood. With a series of activities the Dy-No environment promotes engagement with children aged 5-10 in a fun a social setting that activates dynamic balance motor skills to enhance their neural and physical health. This play based education will provide children with key skills paramount to future learning’s in both physical activities and education.
