Do you want to have an active classroom but can't deal with the noise and chaos?

With the introduction of screens, and children living more sedentary lives, we are seeing more and more children sitting floppy during mat time, struggling to focus on the story book, and getting easily distracted by their peers.

  • Discover how to use the benefits of movement to improve children's focus, attention, and anxiety without disruption to your curriculum

  • Gain access to easy to use resources which can engage your learners and still achieve the demands of your curriculum

  • This course will help you transform your classroom to suit the needs of active kinesthetic learners, while maintaining your current classroom level of calm

"I am still in the middle of my learning from your online PD, and I want to thank you so much for all the information, samples of activities and videos that you have prepared. I am about to cry of happiness just watching your videos and having the materials that we can download. These are exactly the information I have been looking for to guide me as music and movement Specialist in our school. Saying that this PD is a huge help is an understatement! I am so looking forward for more PD that you'll offer."
