CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Enrollment is now open for the Spring 2003 session of Kindergym, a creative movement program sponsored by the University of Northern Iowa. Kindergym is designed for children ages 2 to 5 years old and their parents. It focuses on the exploration and development of motor skills.
The program will be held Saturday mornings, Feb. 8 through April 12; however classes will not be held March 15 or March 22 due to UNI's spring break. Kindergym is divided into two age groups and meeting times. Four-and five-year-olds will meet at 9 a.m. and two-and three-year-olds will meet at 10 a.m. A parent, or responsible adult, is required to attend the sessions with each child.
UNI students majoring in early childhood, elementary and/or physical education help design the program and lead the group activities.
The registration fee is $25. A t-shirt is also available for an additional $5. For more information, contact Karyn Finn, Kindergym coordinator, at (319) 273-2141, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
