We run weekly sessions in many private nurseries and Children’s Centres across London and the South East, helping to promote the importance of fitness and exercise to the under 5s and their families.
Physical Development provides children with the skills they need to explore and interact with the world around them. By learning through fun, fitness and music together, our exciting and interactive programme embodies the principles of The Early Years Foundation Stage and underpins all 4 themes of Development Matters.
Our classes help children learn through playing and exploring; being active, having fun and developing their imagination, thinking skills and creativity; all key points in the Prime Areas of Learning and Development. We encourage children to explore, plan, choose and change activities; we challenge them to develop new skills and abilities as well as improve their strength, co-ordination and perception which are all so vital to their future well-being.
We also work with schools for children with additional needs and can organise sessions tailored to meet individual requirements.
Adults and staff are encouraged to participate too and our sessions are a great way of bringing everyone together whatever their age or ability.
"Amanda's Action Club has been coming to the nursery every week since we opened. The children (and staff) love the visits and we eagerly wait for Amanda to arrive, she injects her sessions with her own personal enthusiasm which is very infectious, making a really fun session for the children. I can't recommend Amanda's Action Club highly enough for their very unique classes."
Laura Digby-Bell, Manager of Northcote Gardens Nursery, Wandsworth
"Amanda's Action Club classes are very popular at Islip Manor Children's Centre. It is a great way of introducing exercise to our under 5s and their families. Lise is excellent at encouraging the families to join in with the children and she gives the families ideas of activities to try at home. The sessions are challenging and fun, and always full! We have found that by offering Amanda's Action Club sessions to our families it encourages new families into our Centre, thus increasing our reach."
Rhona Mears, Head of Islip Manor Children's Centre, Middlesex
"Amanda very kindly offered to carry out a session at my school in central London. The school is a special school for children with severe / profound multiple learning difficulties, complex medical needs, autism or challenging behaviour. Amanda worked with the whole primary department with approximately 30 children with a wide range of needs. The session lasted about an hour and was absolutely brilliant! Amanda was able to ensure that all of the students were engaged at all times and the students remained so for the whole hour which is a huge achievement for the students! The students were motivated by Amanda’s loud, outgoing and inspiring teaching strategies and some of the students were keen to join in independently by using the microphone / copying dance moves etc. We are very fortunate to have a high staff ratio and all the teaching staff and teaching assistants were extremely impressed and I was asked if ‘Amanda can come back every Friday’ and was told ‘I have never seen the students remain focused for so long!’.Thank you so much Amanda….I would certainly recommend you and your sessions for all students of any age and ability. It was an absolute treat for both students and staff."

"It has been our pleasure to welcome Amanda to our nurseries over the last two years. From the moment she arrives, dressed in her outrageous fun attire, her energy and enthusiasm is addictive!! Teachers and children are dancing, singing, waving ribbons in the air to a mixture of child friendly music which also includes the latest ‘hits’. How she manages to hold the attention of 80 children of all different ages for such a long time is amazing, the excitement in their little faces is unbelievable!!! We are still singing and dancing when she bounces out the door. Thank you for giving up your time to visit us and please hurry back!!!"

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you from all of the team here for speaking for us at the Nursery+Primary Show this year. I say speaking, when I should say dancing, singing and making everybody laugh and smile! We really appreciate you giving up your time to do so, and hope that you found it an enjoyable experience. The feedback we’ve had from our visitors has been overwhelmingly positive, with many people commentating on how much fun your session was."
