Kiddie Academy® Hosts Field Day Events To Give Back Throughout November

Leading educational child care provider invites families to free health-and-fitness event to benefit Family Promise and charities across the country

November 03, 2021 // Franchising.com // BALTIMORE, Md. - Kiddie Academy®, a premier provider of educational child care, invites children and families to Field Day, a fun, fitness-themed event filled with developmentally appropriate games and physical activities, while supporting various nonprofit groups with donations. One charity recipient will be Kiddie Academy’s national partnering nonprofit, Family Promise, an organization designed to empower families experiencing homelessness. Field Day will be hosted at Kiddie Academy locations across the country during the month of November. Donations to each Academy’s respective chosen charitable organization are appreciated, but not required to attend.

“At Kiddie Academy, our Community EssentialsSM philosophy is all about supporting our greater community and extending what we teach and nurture beyond the walls of our classrooms,” said Maria Dontas, Kiddie Academy director of corporate social responsibility. “Field Day gives families the opportunity to spend quality time together through a health-and-fitness-focused community event, all while laying the groundwork for children’s lifelong appreciation for charitable giving.”

Field Day is a great way to provide an observable example of philanthropy for children. By involving the whole family in philanthropy, Field Day provides an outlet for making a lasting impression on a child. In the youngest learners, Academies nurture affection and encourage feelings of safety and belonging. In older learners, Academies talk about giving and gratitude in digestible terms and provide developmentally appropriate activities that show children they can play a part in making a difference.

“Physical health and brain development are linked to heightened memory and more focused learning. Children benefit when they're given the tools and guidance to make smart health and food choices from an early age,” said Joy Turner, Kiddie Academy vice president of education. “Introducing healthy living habits early helps combat childhood obesity. Large motor skill activities that promote cardiovascular health and outdoor playground time are part of the planned activities for Field Day.”

During Field Day, participating Kiddie Academies will provide light refreshments, great games for children and families, and the brand-new Character Corner with activities to practice Kiddie Academy’s Character Essentials, such as thankfulness and kindness. These events are free and open to the public.
