Healthy Active Little Ones (HALO)

October 10, 2023

Bear’s House Hastings has been taking part in the Healthy Active Little Ones (HALO) programme.

The HALO programme is designed to support early years settings to reflect on their practice across various health and wellbeing areas, celebrate and strengthen what settings already do, and identity (and action) areas for further development.  Health and wellbeing areas include healthy eating, physical activity, social and emotional wellbeing, independence in self-care and hygiene, oral health, speech, language and communication, immunisation and practitioner and parent/carer health and wellbeing.

As part of the programme, we haveparticipated in various training opportunities.  We have been able to access practical support, resources and information, and advice from a HALO Coordinator.

Following our involvement, we are excited to inform you that we have successfully achieved the HALO Excellence Award.

The HALO Excellence Award recognises our ongoing commitment to supporting the health and wellbeing of children, staff, and families as part of an evidence-based, whole-setting approach.  We have been able to evidence this by demonstrating improvement in our health and wellbeing practice and healthy food provision in line with the Voluntary Food and Drink Guidelines for Early Years Settings in England.

We want to thank you and your children for your valuable input and for supporting us in achieving this award.  We will always welcome further input and ideas from parents and carers regarding further health and wellbeing improvements we can make within our setting.
