Current statistics are fairly shocking. Reception children (aged 4-5), 9.1% are obese and another 12.8% are overweight. (Public Health England). At stretch-n-Grow we are being positive about the obesity crisis that exists for our children today.
We make exercise fun, delivering weekly sessions in nurseries and schools in the Twickenham and Hampton area. Children enrolled will take part in one 20,30,34 or 60 minute session per week. Each session consists of warm-up, stretching, floor exercises and low aerobic activity. All designed with children in mind. Stretch-n-Grow Twickenham started in 2008 and operates in some of the main nurseries in the area.
