Balanceability is the UK’s first accredited ‘learn to cycle’ programme for children aged 2Ā½ to 6 years old. The programme has been awarded the prestigious Kitemark by the Professional Development Board for Physical Education so you can be sure that all the activities are in line with National Curriculum Guidance for Early Years and Foundation Stage Development.

EYFS Physical Development: Moving and Handling (a Unique Child 40-60+ months)

  • Experiments with different ways of movingĀ 
  • Negotiates space successfully when playing racing and chasing games with other children, adjusting speed or changing direction to avoid obstacles.
  • Travels with confidence and skill around, under, over and through balancing and climbing equipment.

Balanceability combines unique ergonomic balance bikes with a schedule of fun activities that build confidence, spatial awareness and dynamic balance skills enabling young children to cycle without ever needing stabilizers.

A balance bike is a lightweight, pedal-less child’s bike which facilitates balance and propulsion. Children run along whilst seated, push-off the ground to create forward movement and use a combination of their feet-and hand-operated brake to slow down and stop safely.
