Movement is at the very core of how children develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, and of course, physically. Here at Moving Smart we foster children's naturally move-to-learn style while helping parents and teachers understand the comprehensive benefits of all that wiggling!

Meeting up online through Twitter, online seminars or eTwinning and exchanging ideas and good practice has gone some way to filling the void that the lack of more traditional forms of CPD, such as courses, has left."
