About Kids Fitness

At Kids Fitness we do a range of fitness activities, sports and games. Each week the activities are different so that children experience many different sports, games and exercises that ordinarily may not be available to them.

A room for parents, carers & guardians

We have a dedicated room for parents, carers & guardians at Norfolk Lodge, where you can have a cuppa and a chat to others, knowing your child is in having fun in a safe environment. Throughout the year, our Service Manager will drop into the parent’s room at scheduled times to maintain regular contact, collect feedback, offer support and to answer any questions you have.
