At kindergarten called “Charivnytsia” there was a new children’s sports equipment thanks to KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT of Metinvest Group. Now the physical training activities become more fascinating, entertaining, and, above all, useful.
At the beginning of the year the “Charivnytsia” kindergarten became one of the winners of the competition related to Metinvest social projects called “We Improve the Town”. Thanks to financial support of KHARTSYZSKY PIPE PLANT educators acquired the modern equipment for gymnasium of kindergarten. The children had a lot of pleasure while unpacking the new equipment together with their tutors. Yevminov units, children;s exercisers “Trampoline”, “Air Walk”, “Magic Path”, stationary bike “Junior”, dry basin and sports complex “Early Start”, big wind balls is the wealth of “Charivnytsіa” pupils now.
As Marina Pavlova, the Head of Municipal Preschool Educational Institution No. 1 “Charivnytsia” noted, that children of modern time foremost incur a deficit of movement:
- A long stay of children in sitting position is one of this deficit reasons. The general computerization affects! We try our best to acquaint children with active lifestyle through sport. Our educators take a creative approach to physical training activities: they develop various techniques, make the equipment of waste material with their own hands. And now when we along with Metinvest have bought such remarkable ex-ercise machines, the activities will become more interesting and effective!
Nothing matters but children like the new exercise machines and other educational equipment very much. For example, it’s difficult to take kids off the dry pool and new soft blocks.
Yulia Nikonova, mother of one of kindergarten’s pupils said: “My child goes to kindergarten with pleasure and takes exercises. On behalf of many parents we say thanks to KHARTSYZSK PIPE PLANT for assistance in renewal of gym equipment. The sports activity has become fascinating and cheerful. We, parents, want our children to grow strong, active and healthy”.
