What is Mini Skillz?

Mini Skillz is a Parent and Me class that was developed by the internationally renowned Skillz Program – a martial arts curriculum that was developed using child development psychology to help children grow physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally. Classes are broken down by age ranges based off of children’s various stages of development. By understanding the stages of development of 18 to 36 month olds, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up the Mini SKILLZ Program:

Why Mini Skillz?

During 18 to 36 months of age, children’s skill development moves very fast. Their brains are growing rapidly, language is blooming, and motor skills are advancing. At the same time, thinking becomes more developed, and their social and emotional skills enable them to interact with more people. With that said, this is the ideal age to begin participation instructed group activities, such as Mini SKILLZ! The Skillz Program has done extensive research on the stages of development for children this age, and from that information have built a fun and exciting program that is just right for both the child and their guardian.
