Let's All Boogie
Our ‘Let’s all Boogie’ early years programme of dance and movement is for pre-school aged children from 18 months old and their parents/carers. It is a family learning programme designed to be delivered in local venues such as Sure Start Centres (UK only), baby/toddler groups, nurseries and other community venues. The Let’s All Boogie programme is a good engagement tool for adults to support children’s learning as well as supporting young children in important developmental areas. We are aware that many families need input from agencies such as Sure Start, and that family cohesion and stability is an area which needs to be supported. Our early years programme helps to enhance family cohesion.
Parents/carers and children learn and work together and family learning is developed. This in turn fosters motivation and enthusiasm to work together on other areas of family development and supports family diversity. As parents and other family members are familiar and comfortable in neighbourhood venues and can access them easily it helps to break down any barriers which can arise from the unknown or unfamiliar. We actively encourage parents and carers to take part in the sessions and for some adults this can be challenging. Our programme is a fun, inclusive and non-competitive activity.
