"Leave the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading." ~ Thomas Jefferson
Did you know:
85% of kindergartners fail a basic physical education test.
Children who fail to master their fundamental motor skills by the age of 6 may never realize their full potential to perform them.
The statistics above indicate that while we are teaching our children their ABCs in preschool, we are failing to provide them with adequate physical education. In this era of convenience foods and sedentary lifestyles, the importance of structured physical activity has never been more crucial.
In addition, kids are starting organized sports at an earlier age and are playing sports year round. Their developing bodies are at greater risk for injury if they aren't physically fit and if they don't know how to "exercise" properly.
Stretch-n-Grow teaches preschool aged children the importance of physical fitness and builds a foundation for a healthy lifestyle. Stretch-n-Grow's effective curriculum can also give kids an athletic advantage as it provides aerobic and muscle conditioning-- all while having fun!
Stretch-n-Grow joins programs like Michele Obama's "Let's Move" Campaign and the NFL Play 60 program in promoting the need for early childhood fitness education. For a complimentary evaluation of how Stretch-n-Grow can benefit your school or program, please contact:
