(Last Friday of January)
Posted on January 31, 2020
The thing is, we don't want little kids, including kids who attend day care / nursery school / pre-school, to worry about their bodies being attractive or unattractive, chubby or skinny, too this or too that. That's definitely not what this holiday is all about.
But we DO want to start kids off on the right foot as far as nutrition, exercise, hygiene, and other physical-body-related habits and attitudes go!
The last Friday of January has been set aside to focus on the fitness "fitness" of day cares and pre-schools, nursery schools and play schools and pre-K classes. Are the snacks being served are nutritious?
Does each day include a lot of active play? Can kids use the bathroom facilities whenever they need to? Are the outdoor as well as indoor areas safe and fun?
The BEST thing for little kids is lots of supervised free time, but of course there are going to be some adult-led activities. Hopefully some of these are active as well - hoop play, parachute play, scarf play, ball play! How fun!
