Parents benefit from new children’s centre offering self-defence and first-aid classes

Article By: Julia Corbett, News Editor

Parents are being given the opportunity to learn self-defence, first aid and even another language at a new children’s centre in Datchet, Berkshire.

The extra opportunities will form part of the centre’s plan to be a ‘community beacon’ by delivering extra education support for both adults and children.

Organisers of the opening of the Active Kids Day Centre spent time helping children create Easter cards, and took part in themed games to showcase the importance the centre places on active play, creative education and learning together.

Mark Baxter, director of Active Kids Day Centre, said: “Active Kids Day Centre, in Datchet, offers a wide early years education curriculum for children from three months to seven years of age, in a safe and comfortable environment where children feel free to develop and express themselves with skilled child carers always at hand.

“Staff understand that years spent in nursery are a crucial part of each child's upbringing and look to work in partnership with parents to ensure that well-being is protected, that healthy eating is promoted and that physical development is championed alongside active learning.

“Our children’s centre is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We hope we can be a positive influence, not only for the children, as well as the community.”

The nursery provides full and half day childcare options as well as a three hour drop-in service designed to give parents a break and encourage them to carry out other activities.

It is hoped parents will be able to meet new friends through the extra opportunities on offer, with more activities planned for the future.
