Parental Workshops

As part of our mission to raise attainment through movement, MovementWorks now offers an extended family learning course called Magic Movers™ - look out for more courses coming soon.

MovementWorks offers informative workshops for parents and Early Years carers. These fun sessions provide some theoretical background together with a practical understanding of the links between movement, development and learning. They give insight into how the ability to perform specific movement patterns are essential for school readiness and how to apply this knowledge at preschool and home to support learning in a way that is enjoyable.

“From the children’s point of view the sessions represent a fun time where they can dance and attempt some fun challenges…As a parent at a recent parents meeting, I found the concepts discussed around both brain and physical development revelatory. We all want our children to transition well into school, we want them to be healthy, well-balanced emotionally and of course we want them to have fun. Ali has found a way to balance all of these needs in a way that reaps benefits all round. Full credit to Puddleducks for embracing this innovative new technique in their quest to provide the best possible experiences and opportunities for the children and to Ali for getting us leaping about on a Thursday evening!”
