A unique approach to movement, driven by process rather than outcome.
We believe that education occurs best through ongoing development where the aim is not a specific ‘end’ but to experience, enjoy and grow throughout the process.
We are driven by our mission to deliver a program where inclusion and learning take place through pure experience, without consideration of an outcome such as winning or who is best to worst.
This learning environment encourages intrinsic motivation, autonomy and exploration. We deliver activities that incorporate movement and mindfulness to build important foundational skills; increasing confidence and improving learning outcomes. These components work together to build and support children’s physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
Our programs offer a spectrum of guided movement and activity from high energy dynamic games to subtle breathing practice and self-reflection.
Our approach is built around 6 key elements:
- Coordination and agility
- Skill activities
- Movement challenges and games
- Dynamic movement control
- Moving in the environment
- Core movement
Our program is aligned with the World Health Organisation’s model for health promoting schools; a model the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing supports.
We map our programs against each state and territory’s physical education curriculum and the national Health and Physical Activity Curriculum.
We work closely with educators to tailor our programs to meet individual school needs.
The approach is based on engagement, enjoyment and inclusion. We create an atmosphere where kids want to participate. Play is a natural state for kids and we utilise that as a way in to help them develop positive attitudes towards movement.
Evidence conclusively shows that physical activity is essential to human health, function, and enjoyment of life. Rather than some discretionary aspect of living, movement is necessary for every body. Bluearth programs seek to reveal movement as enjoyable and accessible to each person in order to promote lifelong engagement in physical activity for all.
