Events and Workshops

The passion behind the Animal Fun Program is all about helping children to achieve their potential. Our research confirms that giving young children the opportunities to practice and refine their motor skills in a fun and non-competitive way really sets them up for having lots of positive experiences around physical activity and gives them the self-confidence to achieve their goals.

We share our story via our website, social media and in person with presentations at national and international conferences and by holding professional development workshops.

Face to Face and Online Workshops are organised periodically -so if you are interested in attending and to assist with planning for travel could you please indicate your expression of interest. You will be then be kept informed of when the next workshop will be scheduled so you don’t miss out on tickets.

If you have any questions about the content of the workshops or would just like to have a chat about developing some training which meets your individual needs please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing me [email protected] or by phone +61 409942182

Upcoming Events

I am thrilled to announce that I will be back doing Face to Face Workshops in 2021. Please indicate via the Expression of Interest Form above if you are keen to host or participate in a workshop and I will get in touch with you.

Sadly, I have had to cancel the planned Face to Face Workshop in Brisbane due to the new Covid outbreak – but this has been replaced with an Online Workshop – same Date and Time. So wherever you are – you are very welcome to join this event.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite

We are excited to be on the road again and this time heading to Margaret River in the South West.
