(Apple Valley)–With the generous support of First 5 of San Bernardino the Town of Apple Valley Recreation Department is offering three new programs for children five years of age and under, all free of charge. Registration is now open on a first-come, first served basis at the Recreation Department: 14955 Dale Evans Parkway. Call (760) 240-7880 for more information.
Mommy and Me classes provide an outlet for parents and their 2-4 year old toddlers to spend time socializing while learning about the importance of health and nutrition. Each session will meet four times in one month with the first classes offered every Friday from March 1st through March 22nd between 12:05 and 1 p.m. at Town Hall. Information on a second session will be released soon.
The My First Sports program teaches skills in basketball, soccer, and T-ball to children ages 3 to 5. These classes meet for 4 weeks while improving socialization and muscle memory through age appropriate exercise. The next session will be offered each Thursday from April 4th to the 25th from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. at the James Woody Recreation Center’s Mini-Gym.
Lastly the Town is offering a “Vantastic” good time to preschools and daycares serving children age 3 to 5. First 5 funding allowed the Town to refurbish a passenger van for mobile recreating programming. The Town’s professional staff can now introduce children to the world of health and fitness in a fun, creative and non competitive way. “Vantastic Fun” classes give children a great workout consisting of warm ups and stretching, followed by a high-energy, low-impact exercise, dance, games and a variety of sports. Each class will conclude with a health, nutrition or safety lesson and a healthy snack. Each session will include two fifty five minute on-site visits. Schedule yours today!
