Welcome to The Busy Bodies Workshop
So What is this all About?
Due to increased availability of technology and security concerns this generation of children is growing up very differently to our and previous generations. Children just don’t move as much as we did.
The result – many 5, 6 and 7 year olds are arriving in the classroom environment without the necessary strength, skills and abilities to learn and thrive. Because it didn’t affect us as parents and educators there is a gap in our knowledge of how to help.
The Long Story
Only 1 in 12 preschool children is as strong as the average child born in 1981. That’s a frightening statistic! That means if you’re a parent that’s probably your kid. Our children live more sedentary lives than we did, with more technology available and more constraints on their freedom due to the increase in crime. There is no cycling to a friend’s house or going up to the corner store to buy milk for Mom. The suburbs are quiet. Nobody is playing OUTSIDE.
The Busy Bodies Workshop aims to take the MYSTERY OUT of SCHOOL READINESS. We educate and support Parents, Teachers and Caregivers of Preschoolers to help them build strong, able preschoolers who will become happy, confident learners.
