What has been your greatest achievement to date? And were there any measurable outcomes that accompanied this achievement?

How many organisations/clients currently utilise the service/solution across the UK?
Our sessions are used in hundreds of early years settings across the UK as well as schools for their reception classes.
Is there anything you would like to make delegates aware of ahead of the HiAP 2019 conference on 1st May?
We are passionate about early years healthy habits. We want to see as many children falling in love with physical activity from the minute they can walk as possible. Our sessions are constantly developing through our continuous work and learning through our qualified dance practitioner who started the company 15 years ago and various other professionals including early years consultants, SEND professionals and child psychologists
What do you feel are the key points delegates need to digest when considering a partnership with diddi dance?
We want to help try and tackle childhood obesity and believe how a child perceives physical activity as a large part. At this age they have to be engaged properly through fun sessions with great music that children cant help but dance along to. We would love to discuss any partnerships with those who have the same vision and understand the importance of early years interventions.
