Free Training for Childminders and Early Years staff - Providing a good start for young people

HENRY training is underpinned by the latest research into the complex factors that protect against, or lead to, obesity. This course recognises that childcare settings play a vital role in providing a healthy start for young children and enables staff to


adopt a consistent approach and model a healthy lifestyle to young children in their care

develop their knowledge about healthy meals, snacks and portion sizes for young children

understand the value of active play

manage behaviour and build self-esteem, so that children start school emotionally prepared and ready to learn


The course is practical, reflective, fun – and effective. Research has shown that

HENRY training results in

positive changes to policy and practice in early years settings – including age-appropriate portion sizes, healthy snacks and strengthened team working

practitioners continue to use the

knowledge and skills gained many years after they completed their HENRY training

practitioners make sustained personal changes to develop a healthier lifestyle
