Children's Movement Program

Coordinated by the departments of Recreation Services and Kinesiology

 

Children's Movement Program (eight classes) — Ages walking through 12

The next program will begin in September of 2014.

Jump, climb, explore, dance, and play games! This Saturday morning program is based on Brock's movement education program, incorporating problem-solving and decision-making skills. Educational gymnastics, creative dance, and developmental games challenge children to be active and try new skills.

For children who have a special need, volunteer movement partners are available to provide one-on-one interaction and provide appropriate assistance so that your child is an active participant in the program.

Session times:

  • 9–10 am for ages 1-2 yrs, 3-4 yrs and 5-7 yrs
  • 10–11 am for ages 1-2 yrs, 3-4 yrs and 5-7 yrs
