Stretch-N-Grow/ Ugot Active Kidz

Stretch-N-Grow Childcare Program in Waterbury, Connecticut

THE FUNtastic Fitness & Nutrition education program improves the level of fitness in our STARS and teaches them (and their families) the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the perils of inactivity.


Our classes combine all of the elements of a traditional kid-friendly movement program into one class that uses imagination and non-stop activity to teach healthy living. Instructors come on site and our kids are engaged in an interactive weekly program. Your child will never be bored – we use a variety of skill-specific equipment.

Research shows:

  • Children today have a shorter life expectancy than their parents for the first time in 200 years because of the epidemic of obesity (Baylor College of Medicine).
  • Preschoolers should have 60 minutes and toddlers 30 minutes of STRUCTURED daily physical activity – not just free play (National Association of Sports & Physical Education).
  • The rate of overweight preschoolers has tripled over the past two decades. The AAP recommends that age-appropriate exercise begins at the preschool level (American Academy of Pediatrics).

Stretch-n-Grow is your school’s choice for early childhood physical education!
