Nothing bonds munchkin and parent quite like getting movin’ together in our Munchkin & Me class or our Family Class. Whether it be by passing a ball, or having a pretend snowball fight, there is a very special connection that can be formed when a munchkin is motivated by their parent to participate in a physical activity.
Nothing makes munchkins socialize with one another quite like playing together. When you give munchkins the opportunity to run, jump, and play with their peers, you are giving them the chance to share laughter, success, and most importantly, silliness. Playing together teaches empathy, teamwork, problem solving, and introduces munchkins to social cues that they will encounter through the course of their lives.
When confident in their movements and skills, munchkins are likely to continue their active life throughout their childhood and into adulthood. Physically literate and active munchkins today will turn into healthy, thriving adults in our community tomorrow!

The activities are fast-paced, which is perfect for little ones with short attention spans, and relaxed. I appreciate that I’m able to participate in the class too. When he ran, I ran. We played, jumped and moved together!Michelle
Movin’ Munchkins was an amazing experience for myself and my 1.5 yr old daughter. The programming is fun, engaging and age appropriate. I love how parents and children get to participate together. The music and gym activities were a hit. The Coach was enthusiastic and on the floor playing with children, making it very engaging for even a young toddler.
Movin’ Munchkins was generous and sponsored a newcomer family to Canada. They had very limited English. It was beautiful to see the mother and son smiling, playing and interacting as the Coach was so expressive, they were easily able to understand what was going on.Beth
