Pre-Kindergarten Fine Motor Camp
Ages: 4-5 years (or has not started kindergarten yet)
Family Achievement Center is proud to offer a pre-kindergarten fine motor skills camp! Our summer camp will focus on developing age-appropriate fine motor and visual motor skills to increase readiness for Kindergarten. Group participants will love our engaging games and activities which focus on refining hand dominance, hand strength, grasp patterns and pre-writing skills just to name a few.

Recent research has shown that fine motor skills, along with attention and general knowledge, are much better predictors of later math, reading and science scores than early reading and math alone (Grissmer et al. (2010)). Fine motor skills are crucial for every child entering Kindergarten and this group will support development in this area.

This group is appropriate for your typically developing child and those with mild fine motor delays. Parents will be provided a weekly recap along with activities to incorporate into your daily routines at home. Come and join the fun!

Dates: Monday-Thursday; June 18th – 21st and June 25th – June 28th
Times: 10:00-11:00 a.m. Cost: $320*
