CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa will host Kindergym, an informal learning program focusing on the development and refinement of motor skills for 2- to 5-year-olds.

The program will be offered Saturday mornings from 9 to 9:50 a.m. for 4- and 5-year-olds and from 10 to 10:50 a.m. for 2- and 3-year-olds. Sessions will be held Feb. 1 through March 8 in UNI's Wellness Recreation Center main gym.

Physical activity stations will focus on age appropriate movement skills that encourage success in a fun atmosphere. Because Kindergym is a parent/child program, parents are requested to attend the sessions with their child.

The registration fee is $32; deadline for registration is Jan. 14. The program is directed by Julie Simonson, program assistant in the Department of Health, Physical Education & Leisure Services.

For more information about Kindergym or to register, contact Rip Marston, professor in UNI's Department of Health, Physical Education & Leisure Services, at 319-273-6882 or ripley.marston@uni.edu.
