The challenge was part of a special tribute to the hero who won the hearts of the nation when he raised almost £33m for NHS charities by walking laps of his garden
The 100-year-old died with coronavirus in Bedford Hospital on Tuesday.
Children at Big Adventures Childcare planned activities in his honour for during the day as the nation planned a Clap for Sir Tom and the NHS for later in the day.
Alison Comfort said: "Wow what a day today we talked to the children about Sir Tom Moore and that he had gone to heaven.
"We talked about how he was 100 and walked his garden 100 times.
"We went into the garden and began to walk laps of our garden in honour of Tom.
"We did 30 laps walking and five jogging.
"We even found some useful walking sticks.
"We then came inside for a story about Tom and I stayed at nursery at 6pm to join in with the clap."
