Hatch programmes are based on specific movements which can help re-programme your child's brain to improve their learning and help them develop.
The Prepare for School Programme includes a 4-week video programme of simple to do exercises. This is enhanced by full supporting literature to enable you to optimise your child's development.
Movement is the foundation of all learning. It provides the building blocks for our developmental foundations. Sometimes our children struggle with certain building blocks and this affects how they respond to their environment and their future learning.
We need to move to build synapses, neural pathways etc. All of this helps with our balance, our concentration, ability to see, hear, sit still.......and excel!
Based upon integrated learning strategies for retained reflexes, the Pilates Method, kinesiology, brain training techniques and supporting nutritional and behavioural interventions, Hatch Programmes provide a unique developmental environment to help your child break out of their shell.
Our Prepare for School Hatch Programme is designed to help your child with these essential skills:
- Pencil Grip and Control
- Reading and Eyeline tracking
- Right and left brain connectivity
- Sensory Development
- Core Control
This programme includes the following:
- Exercises to strengthen and improve grip patterns.
- Exercises to improve eyeline control and tracking.
- Exercises to build confidence and control in the body with balance and co-ordination work.
- Exercises to teach confidence through movement.
- Core strength work to re-connect the brain and body.
- Techniques to stimulate the senses.
What else is included?
- Fine Motor Skills Toolkit with fun activity ideas to improve hand/eye co-ordination.
- Nutrition Toolkit
- Daily Living Toolkit to help with tasks at home such as dressing and hygiene
By the end of the programme we would expect to see a more confident child, who finds it easier to concentrate and hold their pencil.
Amazing value: Priceless for your child's future!

About the instructor
Catherine Silcock-Clinical Director:
"To hatch is to break free of ones shell, to push through those boundaries that are holding one back from growing fully in life.
With my training as a Chiropractor (which included in depth study of neurology) plus my post graduate studies of paediatrics and as the mother of a child with ASD who I was adamant I wanted to help him as much as possible without pharmaceutical intervention I began investigating......In fact in my position one never stops investigating.
As such I have read many many books, articles and studies. We have attended various appointments with a myriad of specialists who brought a part of the mosaic of help to the table including nutritional advice, brain gym exercises, eye tracking, practical advice to help day to day while at the same time addressing the causes of my son's differences.
Over 2 years on and I have a significantly different child. The little boy who couldn't make eye contact, couldn't sit still, ate his clothes and had a delay in convergence with one eye is an extremely different individual these days. One of the first free readers in his class, popular, gifted at sport, his clothing is no longer chewed and he has more good days than bad at school (a real achievement)!
Hatch is a forum to bring all the knowledge gained through my education and experience to allow other parents to access it without having to juggle attending several different appointments with the demands of life with a young family. Sometimes it's essential to see a specialist in person but this program is designed to help your little chick break free of the shell that's holding them back from the comfort of their own home!"
