Donegal County Childcare Committee (DCCC) invited all Early Childhood Services in County Donegal to take part in Active Donegal Month last June, in conjunction with Donegal Sports Partnership,
The ‘Just Try It’ campaign brought together a host of sporting and recreational events to help get Donegal more active and DCCC invited all Early Childhood Services to organise an innovative and fun active event including parents and children to promote activity.
Active events were registered with the Donegal Sports Partnership and were entered into the DCCC ‘Just Try It’ Competition. Early Childhood services had to carry out an active event of their choice and send information and images to show DCCC the benefits of the active event.
Active Events ranged from sponsored walks, fun days, crazy golf, going on a bear hunt and many more...
Early Childhood Services who completed an active event were entered into the DCCC ‘Just Try It’ Competition where seven Buntús Start Bags were available as prizes. Prize winners were selected at random and the following Early Childhood Services won one Buntús Start Bag and a refresher Buntús Start training course each to help early childhood educators make the most of their new equipment.
Prize winners are as follows: Inis Eoghain: Little Stars, Moville – Crazy Golf; The Playhouse Pre-School, Buncrana – The Playhouse Ceili; First Steps Pre-School & Childminding Service, Inch Island – Fun Day- ‘Step Out for iCARE’; Stepping Stones Playgroup, St. Johnston – Danone Big Toddle; Little Stars, Donegal: Laghey – We’re going on a Bear Hunt; Ardara Community Childcare Ltd, Ardara– Sponsored Fun Walk; Milford: Fairytales Day Care, Milford: Barnardos Toddle Waddle.
DCCC would like to thank all early childhood services for participating in Active Donegal Month in June.
