Stretch-n-Grow is a wonderful outlet for your child’s natural energy and desire for movement. Kids get to hop, crawl, and balance through obstacle courses developing gross motor skills and expanding their cognitive development. Instructor Shevon Hoover teaches them about their muscles and the importance of caring for your health. She choreographs imaginative routines to stories and music that add to the never-ending learning and fun.
