Fitness, Nutrition and Hygiene

At Putney Playgrounds Kindergarten, we are conscious of Good health and physical wellbeing

Fitness, Nutrition and Hygiene

Good health and physical wellbeing is fundamental to a child’s ability to develop, learn and grow. Fitness sessions are incorporated into our daily program and are designed to establish healthy physical activity patterns, to assist children to accept the unity of mind and body.

At PPK we aim to promote healthy lifestyles, good nutrition and the wellbeing for all children, educators and families using procedures and policies. We also aim to support and provide adequately for children with food allergies, dietary requirements and restrictions and specific cultural and religious practices.

PPK has a responsibility to help children to develop healthy food habits. By working in collaboration with families, we will endeavor to positively influence each child’s health through good nutrition, healthy lifestyles and fitness.
