Let’s Get Fit and Healthy!
Bridgeport Child Development Center received a grant from Head Start Body Start this school year which allowed us to add additional equipment to our rooftop playground. The grant also provides training from Head Start Body Start for teachers about the benefits of gross motor activities, both indoor and out.
On Feb. 18, 2011, Enid Chesler from Head Start Body Start conducted a training for the teachers of BPI. During the training, teachers were given new ideas for gross motor activities.
They were able to participate in some activities to help meet our physical objectives, as well as have a great time in the process. Families can learn more about Head Start Body Start and utilize many wonderful resources by visiting www.headstartbodystart.org.
