Do you stay indoors, desperately longing for the return of the sun? Do the kids get grouchy and make trouble? It doesn’t have to be that way! Grab the kids and head to the Vecova Recreation Centre. Besides drop-in opportunities, Recreation at Vecova has a number of excellent programs for your children, offering you a chance to take a break, while giving the kids a chance to play and burn some energy.
Vecova offers Play and Learn Winter Programs that include Tot Spot, designed for the little ones, ages 3 – 5 years. Through play, activities, and storytime, this program offers children a chance to practice social and listening skills, following directions, and cooperation: sharing, taking turns, and using manners. While they’re having fun, they’ll be developing their fine and gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and balance. Counting and language skills will be introduced in a fun way and the children will be using their imagination while expressing their own personal creativity. Children who may have a bit a separation anxiety are gently eased into this program.
Along with plenty of adult-only programs, Vecova also offers many parent and child programs like Stroller Bootcamp, Parent and Baby Dance Fit, or Parent and Baby Tabata. These classes not only benefit you with movement and activity, but it’s a great way to meet people in the same stage of life. Try one this January!
Of course, Vecova has even more fun ways to spend the winter. Vecova is well-known for its amazing heated salt-water pool, and there are programs that utilize the pool, as well as Red Cross Swimming lessons. Or, get Vecova to host your next birthday party; they lead games or activities in the gym or pool and provide a party room.
