Healthy U Early Childhood Sites

Healthy U Early Childhood is being implemented in 80 YMCA early childhood and preschool sites serving over 4,500 three-five year olds.  The program has the same philosophy and goals as the Healthy U Afterschool with age-appropriate activities and lesson plans.  Early childhood youth in the YMCA programs experience games and physical activities that provide an environment for success in skill development and exercise.   Nutrition lessons are taught through fun circle time activities and exploration activities.  This program also provides parents with valuable tip and suggestions for use at home.
