Activ8 Fitness Camp – Get your Superhero Active:

Our Jolly Giraffes and Laughing Lions have been participating in Activ8 Fitness Camp sessions on a Friday afternoon. They focuses on providing a fun fitness program that incorporates developing a child’s mental health and well-being. These sessions will be provided by the nursery for those attending Fridays from 2 - 4pm. Special afternoons will be provided for parents to come in and join the fitness sessions with their children, and also learn about what they can do to support their child’s health and well-being.

The sessions are offered by Ben Green, founder of Activ8 Fitness Camp

(http://www.activ8fitnesscamp.co.uk/index.html) and has been a great hit with the children!

Weather:

With the weather becoming colder, please ensure your child has suitable clothing including a warm coat, scarf, hat, etc. for their play time outdoors. These are to be labelled with the child’s name and surname.

Collection of Children:

Please tell us if anyone else is collecting your child. We would request that you email/ phone us the day before to inform us that your child will be picked up by someone else. Please give the adult’s name and surname and provide us with a password e.g. “red balloons”. When the other adult collects the child, they need to have photo ID with them and they need to give us the correct password. If they fail to do so we will not release the child into their care.

Kind Regards,

Ms Izette & the Zeeba team
