Gymfinity Kids opens new daycare in Chatham

A new crèche brings the outside in with garden furniture for the enjoyment of the children.

Gymfinity Kids has opened its second nursery in Kent inside the former Dickens World building in Chatham Maritime.

Catering to children aged six weeks to five years, the nursery is part of Gymfinity’s new activity center and will focus on movement. Children will spend at least 60 minutes on the gymnasium floor each day, where they can “explore the incredible machine that is the human body, whether it’s learning a forward roll or just having fun” .

The property has rooms for every age group, from babies to preschoolers, but without a garden, the nursery has created an indoor garden instead with plenty of natural light. It includes artificial grass, natural materials to play with, an earthen kitchen, tricycles to ride on, a messy play area and a reading corner.

The nursery will also focus on mindfulness and ways to improve children’s well-being – for example, toddlers who don’t sleep well or have trouble napping will take part in yoga or a mindfulness session given by qualified personnel.

Best-selling author Annabel Karmel is Gymfinity Kids’ Food Ambassador. The company says the children in their nurseries “eat the most nutritious, healthy and tasty foods to provide them with the energy they need to be active, play and support their learning”.

Anita Wilden, Head of Nursery Operations at Gymfinity Kids, said: “At Gymfinity Kids, everything we do is rooted in the ambition to build the foundation for a happier and healthier nation.

“The pandemic has seen levels of inactivity soar and now it’s more important than ever to get kids moving, fueling their bodies with healthy foods and supporting their development.

“We are thrilled to have opened our largest and most impressive club and daycare center to date, in Chatham, and to encourage even more children to love being active from an early age.”

Parents can now enroll their child in a crèche and receive £0 enrollment fees plus 10% off for three months.
