BACKGROUND

Moving Smart is an education and health, professional development company with a unique focus on the role movement plays in early childhood development and readiness for formal learning. Moving Smart is committed to engaging and fostering children’s natural, move to learn style while supporting teachers and parents understand the comprehensive benefits of all that wiggling. 

AFFILIATION PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

Go behind the wiggles and giggles to understand the body-brain connections that explain why kids do what they do.  Put all that natural energy to work to build optimal learning foundations for the classroom and life.  Offering a physical activity programme is a great first step.  But for little ones, it’s only half an answer.  From birth young children need a carefully-balanced, developmentally-appropriate “daily diet” of movement to build the body for health, the brain for learning, and the confidence to conquer challenges head-on.
