Training via zoom coming soon (date to be confirmed) 2022 at 7-8:30pm.


Supporting learning about a healthy lifestyle is a key topic for early years. As Early Years professionals we each have the privilege and opportunity to make a lasting impact on young children’s wellbeing and future development. We are all role models for the children in our care and, if we are to model wellbeing and healthy choices, we need a healthy learning ecosystem so that we can provide the best possible start for the children in our care. Whilst we are all aware of the importance of health and wellbeing in the Early Years, now more than ever it’s becoming obvious that the current situation requires us to re-evaluate our wellbeing priorities.

Neuro-musical evidence suggest that music in early years can play a role to support health and wellbeing in early years, so we have got together with Linda Baston-Pitt from Purple Bee learning to link her expertise in the area with our expertise in music.

Promoting health and wellbeing is central to our role as leaders, but how your nursery is organised and how it operates day to day is what makes the difference. In this session Linda will explore what the latest research tells us about supporting staff wellbeing. She will then share some practical strategies and tools that you can embed directly into practice.

Boogie Mites Trainer Liv McLennan will then focus on the potential for effective music practice to support wellness and a healthy lifestyle. An overview of neuroscience evidence and research studies that back up the key role that music can play for boosting cognitive function and networks that help in this area. You will then be invited to join in and learn 4 Boogie Mites songs from our Healthy Living Music Programme so that you can trial them with your children to experience the wellness boost and healthy messages for yourself!
