Preschool Fitness Day

Thursday, February 21

It's never too early to celebrate health and fitness with your preschooler. In our "Kiddie Fittie" class, we'll use hoops, scarves, balls, and more to encourage balance, coordination, aerobic exercise, and stretching. We'll finish by making a healthy snack. It's a great way to start your youngsters on a healthy foot, so be sure to get your spot today.
