One word: CATCH
What does it mean? CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) means a focus on physical activity, nutrition and screen-time reduction. A variety of teaching strategies are used including: movement activities, individual practice, educational games, goal setting and hands-on snack preparation. It also means that your child, no matter what age, will receive proper care and instruction if enrolled in one of the YMCA day care or after school programs. School will be back in session before you know it. Is your child signed up yet? www.bluewaterymca.com
