Community Engagement

Early Childhood Motor Laboratory (Kindergym)

Kindergym was developed around the philosophy that young children benefit by being exposed to a variety of activities that require the utilization of an array of physical, social, and cognitive skills. Although the primary objective of the program's activities is to encourage the child's use of a variety of motor skills, learning opportunities that occur which encourage thinking and/or social skills are not ignored. Kindergym believes that children need to feel liked, to be challenged, and to sense pride in their accomplishments.
