A huge well done to our first group of amazing students who have worked exceptionally hard to become fully fledged Physical Activity and Nutrition Coordinators having achieved their PurpleBee CACHE L4 Award: Become a PANCo.
Good health and well-being is essential for people of all ages, and the best way to form healthy habits is to start from a young age. This is why the Physical Activity and Nutrition Co-ordinator (PANCo) role in Early Years settings has been developed.
What a fantastic weekend at the EY Matters inaugural Health and Wellbeing for All in Early Years conference at Bath Spa University. It was an action packed day, full of discussion, sharing ideas and reflection.

A group of Early Years professionals from an award-winning nursery in Cambridgeshire were the first ever to achieve the new PurpleBee ILM Positive Leadership Award.
