David Lloyd has improved its kids fun zones and nurseries in centres across the UK.

It has invested £300,000 in upgrading its David Lloyd Kids area in its York centre, which includes two studios, a crèche, classroom, outdoor area and revised programme for school holiday kids activities and birthday parties.

A new Tinies nursery will open on July 23rd and offers 50 full-time day care places. A ten per cent discount for this will be offered for David Lloyd York members.

The leisure chain invested £2.5 million on its Kids concept last year.

Sarah Hobbs, head of sport, health and fitness for David Lloyd Leisure, said: “This latest investment will provide a fantastic opportunity for children to enjoy themselves in a safe and modern environment. 

“We know that children who have positive sporting or active experiences at a young age are more likely to continue being active in adulthood. The DL Kids programmes are designed to provide the opportunities for children to get active, focusing on fun and participation and with practical facilities that work for the family as a whole.”

Childcare director Oliver Black added: “The Tinies nursery at David Lloyd is a great example of a partnership. Children receive wonderful childcare and education with Tinies, as well as having access to the great physical facilities that David Lloyd has to offer, with elements like tennis, football and swimming all included at no extra cost.”
