I come to schools (nurseries and primary schools mainly) with a power-point presentation and practical examples.
This presentation is for teachers and parents. Once the teachers and parents have the understanding of the principles of good posture then they can introduce posture education to the children throughout the first years in school and at home as they see fit.
What is there to gain for schools:
Who would benefit:
What points will the presentation include:
Posture education is just like any other education you give to your children such as brushing the teeth: you don’t teach it once and then let it go. You do it for many years, you remind, teach and show them the why and the how, day after day. No difference when it comes to posture education, it isn’t an one off thing. The seed needs to be planted and watered throughout the years.
Moreover, I believe this work is best shared between teachers and parents as these are the most influential groups of people in a child’s early years.
