Braco Nursery would like to say a huge thank you to the Ardoch Development Trust for kindly supporting our balance bike project. The grant has enabled us to buy a set of brand new good quality balance bikes and helmets, that should last us many years. These bikes don’t have pedals meaning the children can concentrate on their balance and gross motor control which are often the hardest parts of learning to ride a bike without stabilisers.

The Grant has meant we now enough bikes for everybody and have been able to put on a series of progressive lessons following the Play on Pedals programme. These sessions have given all our children a fantastic early introduction to cycling and the chance to learn to ride a bike confidently before they start school. But best of all the kids having been having lots of fun, building up their confidence and have all finished each lesson with a fantastic sense of achievement.
