Champions for Wellbeing (PANCo)


Who do we turn to for advice about healthy behaviours and what works in Early Years?

PurpleBee offers the gold standard in online training for the nationally-recognised role of PANCo (Physical Activity and Nutrition Co-ordinator). A PANCo is a champion for change; having a qualified PANCo in your setting gives Early Years settings the in-house expertise to integrate a culture of positive health, physical activity and wellbeing in children, their families and staff.

A PurpleBee CACHE Level 4 PANCo certification can help you to meet and exceed Ofsted’s expectations around the health and wellbeing of children, families and your team.

‘Early Years Practitioners provide a healthy diet and a range of opportunities for physically active play, both inside and outdoors. They give clear and consistent messages to children that support healthy choices around food, rest, exercise and screen time.’
