Rio 2016 Starts Today

Date: 05 Aug 2016

It seems like only yesterday that the world descended upon London for an unforgettable Olympic Games!

4 years on from London 2012 and the Opening Ceremony tonight officially commences the start of Rio 2016, with some British favourites heading out to defend their titles; Jessica Ennis-Hill, Mo Farah, Laura Trott and Greg Rutherford to name a few…

Our nurseries love keeping our children active as part of our Active Athletes initiative, see below how some of our nurseries across the country are getting ready for the Olympics:

  • Horseshoe Day Nursery and Preschool in Esher made some Olympic cookies and delivered them to local businesses, raising £35 for The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.

  • Teddies Southfields held a baby sports day, and invited parents to come along and take part with their babies! 

  • The wet weather didn’t stop Barrow Day Nursery and Preschool from their fun filled sports day, filled with obstacles and an egg and spoon race. 

  • Our 3 nurseries in Esher replicated the famous torch relay between all of the nurseries – well done everyone!
