“I am driven to inspire learning and learners to broaden their approach to raise the profile of physical activity within early childhood. Movement in the early years supports a holistic approach to development and can benefit all areas of learning. I have worked directly with many schools and settings across the UK and overseas, with all ages and have found their commitment to ‘moving more’ has remained steadfast. The training courses I provide are primarily aimed at increasing confidence, motivation, and movement skills to elicit excellent responses from children. Delegates will learn how to create their own movement activities to support learning- building on these core principles to become part of their everyday planning. Staff have found the courses to ‘reignite a spark’ within them to become more physically active in their own lives.”  Helen Battelley
