Children at local day nursery chain takes part in well-being world first

Tops Day Nurseries, which has a nursery onsite at the Salisbury District Hospital, participated in the first-ever World Daily Mile Day on 27 April, by encouraging 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 well-being, including increased physical fitness, improved concentration levels, and better mental health.

Tops Day Nurseries recognises the importance of promoting healthy habits among children from a young age. By participating in World Daily Mile Day, the nursery aimed 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.”

The nursery encouraged children and staff to participate in the World Daily Mile Day by walking, jogging, or running for 15 minutes. They also organised fun activities to make the experience more enjoyable for the children, like an obstacle course.

Tops Day Nurseries believes that promoting healthy habits among children is crucial for their overall development and well-being. They are committed to providing high-quality early years education and care that supports children’s physical, emotional, and cognitive development.
