Press release from Tops Day Nurseries.
Tops Day Nurseries is one of the first childcare providers in Babbacombe to introduce free yoga sessions for the children in their care.
The award winning, eco-sustainable childcare provider introduced the sessions as part of a new extra-curricular activity drive that the setting is currently developing, bringing itself in line with the Tops Day Nurseries ethos. After having introduced Yoga, Boogie Mites and Tooth Brushing, these activities will extend to include Tops Forest School, Tops Cooking School, Meditation and more.
Children derive enormous benefits from yoga. Physically, it enhances their flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. In addition, their concentration and sense of calmness and relaxation improves. By doing yoga the children exercise, play, connect more deeply with their inner self and develop an intimate relationship with the natural world that surrounds them.
The nursery, which joined the Tops Day Nurseries family in 2018 has little “Yogis” from just 3 months old to school age who benefit from the regular sessions held at the nursery.
Tracey, Nursery Manager at Tops Babbacombe said “The yoga sessions we provide here at the nursery are incredibly popular. Our staff have been trained to carry out yoga to suit all ages within the early years setting, from babies to pre-schoolers!
The popularity of these sessions has meant that we were able to open the nursery on set dates to the local community who wish to take part in a free yoga stay and play session, where parents are able to learn more about how they can practice yoga with their children at home.”
