  2. 2. What Is PMP? (Perceptual Motor Programme) •Helps a child develop an understanding of themselves and their world through movement. •Helps establish “automaticity” of motor tasks. •Assists the brain to “integrate” based on early childhood motor milestones. •Helps bridge the gap between the early years and formal learning.
