Professional Testimonials

Janine McConnell
Early Primary Years Teacher

My school has had Cheeky Monkey Club visit our prep classes on many occasions to perform several of their fabulous shows.

Their performances always hit the mark with appropriate interest level for that age group and by encouraging active participation throughout the show.  They are fun, engaging, energetic and have a very catchy playlist which you can purchase on CD.

It’s very easily justified to book a performance too, as the shows correlate with the Australian Curriculum.  They fit in nicely with many of the subject areas.

As an experienced teacher I have organised many different incursions for children and the overall feedback from both teachers and children on a Cheeky Monkey Club visit is always how fantastic these shows are.

Do yourself a favour and make sure you lock in this wonderful experience for your class.

You won’t be sorry!

 

Dr Kris Kerr

MBBS (Hons 1), FRCPA, AmusA, AmusTCL (dist.), Certified Trainer in the Process Communication Model

 

I am a specialist medical doctor with additional training in effective communication and emotional intelligence. When I first learnt of Juanita Ryder's Cheeky Monkey Club, I was struck with the obvious similarities between her educational ethos and that of the scientifically validated Process Communication Model that I teach.  The four colours in the Cheeky Monkey Club had clear parallels with the six different perceptual frames of references.

 

Green - Imagination and Emotion

Children learn to explore their imagination, reflect about what it might be like to be someone else, explore a different range of emotions, exercising “What if…”, and develop empathy for those who are not like themselves.  

Blue - Logic and judging: Children learn to take in facts and draw logical conclusions, exercising “If this… then that …”.  Children also learn right from wrong, the basis of opinions.  

Yellow - Creation: Children learn to be spontaneous, playful and creative

Red - Action: Children learn to do first and plunge in the deep end and adapt to the consequences.  

 

I wholeheartedly endorse Cheeky Monkey Club and believe all children should have the opportunity to participate in this cleverly written, well executed program.
