Fit N Fun Kids Interactive Stories
At Fit N Fun Kids we have always been proud of our relationships with our parents. Without doubt having a partnership approach with parents is key to equally supporting the care and development of our children.
It is also times like this, when in lockdown, we can continue to work together in innovative ways.
Rachel and Kate had a ‘virtual’ conversation as to how Fit N Fun Kids could further support our children during the lockdown period, in particular, to bring our interactive stories to life!
With the team being aware of Kate’s amazing acting skills and as parent herself, Rachel felt Kate was the best person to approach to bring this all together, for the fun, learning and enjoyment of our children we are currently unable to see day to day and of course to be shared across social media platforms for all to enjoy!
