No Comments Uncategorized

We could not be more delighted to have the Primrose School of South Tampa support our Fit Kids Playground events, as well as sponsor the Hyde Park Village Kids Market!

Opening up in August 2013, they will be a wonderful addition to the South Tampa neighborhood that they serve. Their Vision is to deliver the best and most trusted early childhood education and child care services for families across America. They strive to commit to being at their personal and professional best each day because they realize they are role models for the children.

Their state of the art facility will be run by Richard and Jana Radtke, who also own other Primrose locations in Tampa, FL. They are long time Primrose School owners with their family deeply rooted into making each school an amazing success. “With deep roots in the Primrose community, we are incredibly devoted to bringing the best possible child care experience to our South Tampa communities. We understand the importance of instilling a love of learning throughout a child’s early years, and we believe this is essential to building a new generation of bright students!”, said Ms. Christy Blackard, new Director of Primrose South Tampa.

Opening in August 2013, Primrose School of South Tampa will be the first urban, LEED-certified Primrose School in the Tampa market and will feature the exclusive Balanced LearningR Curriculum for children ages six weeks to 5 years old as well as through their after school programs for elementary students from public school (transportation provided).

Food Revolution Day!

No Comments Fit Kids, Healthy Events, National, Tampa

I have been inspired by Jamie Oliver since his show, Food Revolution, aired on TV.  Watching his passion for healthy kids, change and awareness about what goes in to our food struck a chord with me because of the work I had already started with Fit Kids Playground.  I had already begun watching more documentaries about food, our food process, the obeseity epedemic here in Amreica amon children, the food regulations that our school system has in place.  But I could tell that this fight was also far from over.

I decided to get more involved.  Fit Kids Playground promotes and supports Jamie Oliver’s mission by being a part of the Food Revolution here in Tampa!  You can join the conversation with us in Tampa through:

We have the same mission:  #realfood

We are excited to also be a part of the May 19th GLOBAL FOOD REVOLUTION DAY event!  We will be out at the Tampa Bay Markets Wiregrass Fresh Market on May 19th.  We will have healthy snacks,  a Fit Kids Playground area and would love to chat with local revolutionaries in our community about how what they are doing to support real food and real change among our community!

Our event can be seen on the Food Revolution Day calendar and we hope to see and meet many of you then!

So what is your take on REAL FOOD?  Is your business or organization standing up for real food?  We would love for more of you to get involved with us locally here in Tampa.  It might take an army to move mountains in this fight, but it has to start somewhere.  One person CAN make a difference!  We hope you will join us!

Event Time & Location:

Saturday, May 19th
