All our Tops Day Nurseries participated in the first-ever World Daily Mile Day on 27th May 2023, by encouraging our children to walk, run and jog for 15 minutes.
The Daily Mile is a simple initiative that encourages children to be active every day by walking, jogging, or running a mile. It has been shown to have many benefits for children’s health and wellbeing, including increased physical fitness, improved concentration levels, and better mental health.
We recognise the importance of promoting healthy habits among children from a young age. By participating in World Daily Mile Day, we aim to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity in children’s lives and encourage them to be more active every day.
Diane Wycherley, Tops Operations Director, said: “Our goal at Tops Day Nurseries is to provide a safe and nurturing environment where children can thrive, and that includes promoting healthy habits like regular physical activity. The Daily Mile is a fantastic initiative that helps children build good habits from a young age, and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
We encouraged all children and staff to participate in the World Daily Mile Day by walking, jogging, or running for 15 minutes. We also organised fun activities to make the experience more enjoyable for the children, like an obstacle course.
We believe that promoting healthy habits among children is crucial for their overall development and wellbeing. We are committed to providing high-quality early years education and care that supports children’s physical, emotional, and cognitive development.
Here, at Tops, we provide eco-sustainable Early Education and Care for children aged 3 months to school age. We have over 30-day nurseries across the South and Southwest and also offer before, after-school and Hi5 holiday clubs for children up to the age of 11.
