Discover CATCH is the Coordinated Approach to Children’s Health is our total wellness initiative that at its foundation teaches the children about the importance of exercise and good nutrition. Discover CATCH is designed to nurture a love of physical activity, provide an introduction to classroom-based gardening and nutrition, and encourage healthy eating in the children enrolled at the GFECC. Modeled after the nationally recognized CATCH Program, Discover CATCH provides an environment where physical activity, health education, gardening and healthy eating behaviors are valued and taught. Little ones are motivated to walk, run, jump, dance and move their whole bodies while playing and having fun!
The CATCH Early Childhood program is unique because the classroom curriculum includes stories with puppets and activities that really resonate with preschool children. Lessons share important nutrition concepts and are crafted so that they can be used in any preschool learning center. Children have fun as they learn about healthy eating; and the PE activities, which come with music, keep kids and teachers moving and singing.
