Our core values are family, community and quality early years learning. We believe in learning through play to support a happy, healthy, heart, mind and body
Founder and Programme Author
Helen is a mum of six and nannie of two and lives in Preston. Her children have all been involved in different sports at different stages of development up to and including national level and along with the hundreds of children she has worked with, are her inspiration for the programme.
Unable to find a holistic programme that equipped children with the fundamental skills required for early physical development that included the most important personal, social and emotional elements she designed her own.
It has proved extremely popular. A qualified primary teacher, independent early years consultant, Level 2 British Gymnastics Coach and No. 1 Best Selling Author, she combined her experience and knowledge in the form of Little Superheroes! The active start health and wellbeing programmes focus on happy, healthy hearts, minds and bodies and meet the needs of today's children.
By building a strong foundation in the early years the programme educates, empowers and encourages children with skills for life.
Rebecca is Helen's oldest daughter and mummy of two. She showed a creative flair from a very young age and was encouraged to become involved in developing the programme. Her input has allowed a child's perspective to be incorporated into the programme. She continues to develop new creative ideas for the programme along with new materials. She is the lead person in our own unique baby development training programme and supports all the training elements
Who better to test a programme for you! Children are honest and our programme has been tried, tested, trialled and modified over an eight year period based on real experiences by real children. We know what works for young children. We are a family programme and family is at the heart of everything we do. We became a registered trademark in April 2018
Andy is married to Helen, Dad of six and Grandad of two. Alongside his own property business he supports the programme operations merchandising and quality assurance systems.
