At our location in San Juan Capistrano

6-Week Class Schedule

August 2nd to September 6th 

Fridays at 10:00am

Duration: 1 Hour

Join us for an exciting and educational motor movement class designed specifically for toddlers ages 2-4 years old! Led by Ali Taylor, a pediatric occupational therapist and developmental expert, this class will focus on developing gross motor skills to build strong muscles, coordination, and confidence. Additionally, we will work on fine motor skills essential for pre-academic and self-care development.

Each session includes:

  • A short circle time to start our adventure
  • A multi-sensory, gross motor obstacle course
  • A themed fine motor craft to engage little hands and minds

Themes include:

  • Under the Sea
  • On the Farm
  • Jungle
  • Bugs & Insects
  • Dinosaurs
  • Birds, Butterflies, and Bees

We will also save time for parent Q&A to discuss motor development, school readiness, and more. We look forward to playing and learning with everyone soon!


Motor movement refers to the ability to move and control muscles and parts of the body. It encompasses both gross motor skills (involving large muscle groups and whole-body movements, like running or jumping) and fine motor skills (involving smaller muscle groups and precise movements, like picking up small objects or using utensils). Motor movement development is crucial in childhood as it supports various activities such as walking, playing, writing, and interacting with the environment.

Ali Taylor is a compassionate and dedicated pediatric occupational therapist with Pure Pediatric Therapy in OC. She has a strong background in diverse clinical settings and she is excited to bring her passion for pediatric therapy to the Mothering Club families!
