The program offers insightful discussions with leading experts on the issues parents and teachers care about most.
"Moving Smart values the contributions of movement and play in the life of young children, so its online community will certainly be receptive to BAM's mission," said Rae Pica, co-founder of the BAM Radio Network. "We're excited to collaborate with Moving Smart to help New Zealand's parents, who are facing the same concerns as parents here in the States, get the information they need to raise children who are truly prepared for life," said Pica.
Stated Gill Connell, director of Moving Smart, "Body, Mind and Child offers a fabulous opportunity for visitors to the Moving Smart website to have access to world experts and renowned educators talking about many different aspects of child development, growth and learning.

About BAM Radio Network
The BAM Radio Network was launched to address the severe imbalance in parenting practices caused by the "commercialization of parenting" and the emphasis on intellectual development that excludes the critical role of the mind/body connection in early childhood. Created by leading early childhood experts, the programming challenges the popular genre of parenting notions that has given rise to commercial products like Baby Einstein, Brainy Baby and lapware, all of which claim to accelerate a child's mental development in the face of science that suggests otherwise. The network is a joint venture between New Hampshire-based Moving & Learning and Los Angeles-based Jackstreet Media Ventures LLC. The program is produced by Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Errol Smith and distributed through the Affiliate Nanocasting Network.
