Helen Battelley is an internationally renowned consultant, trainer and speaker in Physical Activity and movement in Early Childhood Education and an approved trainer for AfPE. Her training style is energetic, passionate, and highly motivational. She has been working as a dance and movement specialist for over 19 years and continues to work directly with children. Helen was fundamental in the creation and release of Change4life’s ’10 Min Shake up cards’.
“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

Feedback from some of Helen’s F2F sessions.
“Lots of ideas were given by Helen as to how to incorporate physical movement into lessons such as phonics, maths etc. Using the idea of getting children into lines, or making up little dance sequences around learning. Using movement to make patterns etc. Really useful course!”
“Met all the objectives, was really engaging, fun, and knowledgeable. Her passion for Early years and education with physical activity and development really came across”
“Clear and informative explanations. Practical work in pairs, with discussions afterwards. And sharing creative ideas. I gained a good understanding of the importance of movement for early years and how certain activities helped children improve in physical ability and mental ability.”
