As part of Children's Activity Week (April 30 - May 4), CBeebies presenter Sid Sloane will be visiting a Bromley play class.
The new national event celebrates the many activities, clubs and classes which benefit millions of children across the UK, and Little Learners, based in Havelock Road, has signed up to be part of the action.
Run by the Children’s Activities Association (CAA) and charity Caudwell Children, the week will see Sid visiting a wealth of different kids’ clubs and classes to help highlight the positive impact children’s activities have on their physical and mental health.
Gemma Holt, who runs the educational messy play class, said: “As gold accredited members of the CAA, we are thrilled to be part of the first ever Children’s Activities Week.
“It’s great to highlight the importance of children’s activities and the huge benefits they have on children of all ages.
“At Little Learners our main aim is to teach children early writing skills through play - we want to make writing fun and help prepare little ones for school.
“We want children everywhere to make their mark and we believe Children’s Activities Week is a great way to highlight those educational activities like ours that are really making a difference to children today.”
Part of the aim of the week is to raise vital funds for charities Caudwell Children and the CAA.
Caudwell Children aims to give disabled children a brighter future by providing the life-changing support they need to lead an active and independent life, while the CAA is the first not-for-profit organisation to raise standards in all organised children’s activities.
The children’s group who raise the most money for charity and show the most energy and passion for the week will be rewarded with a very special prize – a visit from singer, TV presenter and personality Peter Andre.
With the focus on fun, hundreds of thousands of children (and some grown-ups) will be dressing up to attend their favourite activity, club or class around the theme ‘#WatchMeFly’.
There will also be competitions and planned visits by VIPs – such as sports personalities and Olympians.
