CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa will host Kindergym, an informal learning program focusing on the development and refinement of motor skills. The program will be offered Saturday mornings from 9 to 9:50 a.m. for 4- and 5-year-olds and from 10 to 10:50 a.m. for 2- and 3-year-olds. Kindergym will be held Sept. 10 through Oct. 22, in the Wellness & Recreation Center main gym on the UNI campus.

Physical activity stations will focus on age appropriate movement skills that encourage success in a fun atmosphere. Because Kindergym is a parent/child program, parents are requested to attend the sessions with their child.

The registration fee is $32, which includes an official Kindergym T-shirt. The program is directed by Katie Farwell, program assistant in the Department of Health, Physical Education & Leisure Services. For more information about Kindergym or to register, contact Rip Marston, professor in the Department of Health, Physical Education & Leisure Services, at 319-273-6882 or ripley.marston@uni.edu.
