Get Toned at KidZone
Lina Perez, Director of Kidzone Learning Center in Miami-Dade County, Florida, established a partnership with a local gym. Once a month, the gym rents out their space for the kids to use for one hour. Utilizing what she has learned from the National Early Care and Education Learning Collaborative (ECELC) program, Ms. Perez takes all children to the gym to engage them in structured physical activities such as beanbag games and musical chairs. Ms. Perez also invites all of her students’ parents to come out and participate in activities with their children.
Ms. Perez is grateful for the opportunity to partner with her local gym and hopes to make future collaborations with other organizations that support healthy improvements in early child care settings.
