Founder and Programme Author
Helen is a mum of six and nannie of one. Her children are all involved in different sports at different stages of development up to and including national level and are her inspiration for the programme.
Unable to find a holistic programme that equipped children with the fundamental skills required for sport that included the most important personal, social and emotional elements required for a strong foundation she designed her own.
It has proved extremely popular. A qualified 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 programme focuses on happy, healthy hearts, minds and bodies and meets the needs of today's children.
By building a strong foundation in the early years the programme empowers children with skills for life.
Rebecca is Helen's oldest daughter and mummy of one. 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 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 a two year period based on real experiences by real 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 one. Alongside his own property business he supports the programme operations merchandising and quality assurance systems.
