Hi I'm Kim, Founder of Spark ECE Consultancy.
We provide professional development to promote the holistic development of children from birth to 7 years old. At Spark ECE Consultancy we enable teachers and educators to develop the knowledge and skills they need to support each child’s learning needs and bring internal satisfaction in their pedagogical practices.
We have become an affiliate partner with ‘The Whole of Me’ to bring storytelling and a musical experience to yoga in early childhood education centres and schools across Queensland, Australia. This program promotes our principles, practices and outcomes within the Early Years Learning Framework and Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines by drawing a sense of awe and wonder through story telling.
‘The Whole of Me’ provides the tools and training for teachers and educators to develop and enhance their confidence in storytelling, yoga moves and music.
The Whole Of Me uses yoga inspired interactive stories and music to develop language and literacy, listening skills, attention and focus, social emotional and physical development.
Early childhood centres and schools will have the option of onsite training, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote. You also have the option of purchasing the program from the website in its entirety as a bundle (8) themes at a discounted price or jump in and pick and choose between individual themes.
‘The Whole of Me is a multi-sensory, carefully layered resource that will guide & support teachers who understand that children don’t learn unless they feel safe and happy.
As teachers use the story-based activities, children express their creativity through movement,
sounds and words.
The world can be an overwhelming place for a young person. Through movement, sound, and playful discovery, children have an innate ability to express what is in the artist’s dream.
The Whole of Me uses evidence-based cognitive science to tap into children’s innate ability to create. It supports teachers to make their classrooms into places where children’s well-being is the foundation for developing a sense of community.
There is no other resource out there of this quality. ‘
