The goal of Munchkin Movement is to provide high quality swim programs which foster the physical, intellectual, and social development of toddlers, preschoolers, and young school age children.
Using a safe, creative, and playful atmosphere, children will be encouraged to practice age appropriate fine and gross motor skills. Social skills such as following directions, waiting your turn, helping and respecting others, and using good manners will be reinforced in each class.
Munchkin Movement school-year programs consist of 30 minute classes held on a weekly basis. Sessions during the school year run between 5 to 8 weeks in length. Summer programs are held on a variety of schedules and vary from one week to six weeks in duration.
