This program is designed to help parents maintain and enjoy fitness as they exercise with their baby or toddler through the early years. This program combines music, movement, lots of water play, functional exercise and parent-child bonding time. It is aimed at parents with babies/tots aged 8 months to 18 months or with toddlers from 18 months to 3 years.
For babies/tots, the activities focus on developing basic skills such as gross and fine motor coordination, language acquisition, and shape and color recognition – making for healthy quality time.
