Stretch n’ Grow Coach
Stretch n’ Grow
Stretch-n-Grow is the world’s largest network of Certified Youth Fitness Professionals. The program provides exercise programs in schools & crèches that get kids’ bodies AND minds moving with high quality, educational, FUN, and creative exercise experiences.
I have been a coach for Stretch n’ Grow for four years and thoroughly enjoy it. I teach children from 2yrs to 6yrs covering many of the fundamental movement skills, with particular focus on locomotor skills and balance skills. Various types of equipment are used, all of which are colourful, tactile, safe and age-appropriate.
Stretch-n-Grow classes help children to develop better spatial awareness, rhythm and social development. It can also prepare them for sports activities by improving basic sport knowledge, physical conditioning, co-ordination and agility. Finally, there is a strong emphasis on teaching the importance of healthy eating and healthy living e.g. playing outside, being kind to each other, helping others.
