Active Kids Program
Active Kids Program, for parents of children birth-age 2. (English)
5 weeks – Thursdays, February 18 – March 25 on Zoom. The aim of this program is to increase the opportunities for daily, quality physical activity for young children and the adults around them. There are toolkits and training workshops designed specifically to meet the needs of the parents and caregivers that want to enhance the physical activity experiences of young children.
Each family that attends the workshop on February 18th, will receive a toolkit that is designed for families. That toolkit will be a big part of the program, as we meet weekly, for additional weeks.
Children develop coordination, appropriate motor skills, social skills, leadership, imagination and confidence through the physical activity experiences that are woven into their entire day. When one or more parents or a caring adult is engaged in activity, a child is much more likely to participate. This is why families, caregivers and others who work with children play such an important role in helping New Brunswick take positive steps to becoming more physically active and well.
