Healthy Movers

YST Healthy Movers
Delivered through resources and training for both the practitioner and family, Healthy Movers aims to develop physical literacy in children and improve their school readiness and social mobility.

Helping children to become school ready

Available for purchase together or standalone, the Healthy Movers range has been designed to support the development of physical literacy in children aged 2-5. It consists of physical resources and training to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence young children need to develop physically, socially and emotionally.

Using Healthy Movers has helped the children to be more engaged when doing a focused activity and their communication skills are being developed through the dance and physical activities.
