Kids Playing Tug of War

We believe that movement and physical activity are essential for a healthy lifestyle. Movement plays an important role in developing and maintaining a healthy body. It helps to improve cardiovascular health, build and maintain strong bones, improve posture and balance, develop coordination and muscles, and even help children to concentrate better.


According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is suggested that toddlers get 3 hours of activity each day - or 15 minutes per hour they are awake. Through a variety of simple activities and games, we strive to encourage children to be active and learn the importance of movement.

So, throw a ball, go for a walk or try out our fun theme-based games!
