From Our Parents and Partners
SnG Toddler Programs
Our girls have participated in several Stretch-n-Grow programs as well as the SnG toddler program at school. They look forward to each class and have enjoyed making new friends and learning new activities. The teachers are patient, enthusiastic, and create a fun atmosphere. Even taking moments to encourage and invite those to join who are shy or not engaging.
We are currently in a dance class in August 2020, which is being held outside. They are taking precautions for Covid-19 and everyone is cooperating.
We will definitely be signing up for future classes without hesitation.
It was great! I liked the use of imagination, gardening and incorporation of props. [My son] loves props.
We have really enjoyed this class! [My son] has had so much fun digging for vegetables, racing to harvest, and stretching his way through the exercises. It’s so nice to have something for two year olds. It’s so hard to find that. Thank you!
Rhonda Dossett, Executive Director
St. Paul’s Preschool has been a partner of Stretch N’ Grow of Utah for approximately 20 years. We found them when we were looking for a fun developmentally appropriate fitness program for our students. We have always been impressed with the knowledge, care, and enthusiasm of their coaches. We hope to continue partnering with Stretch N’ Grow and Wasatch Family Fitness for many years to come.
Son in Summer Programs
My 4.5 year old son has had a wonderful summer taking part in weekly rookie soccer, basketball and softball classes. We also signed up for a week-long summer camp, which due to Covid-19 ended up requiring parental as well as child participation. Not sure which of us enjoyed it more! I’d definitely recommend Stretch N Grow programs and classes: they create a fun environment; there’s lots of confidence-boosting positive reinforcement for the kiddos; the coaches are energetic and caring; and it’s fantastic value for money!
