Jump, Jiggle and Jive

Organization Sponsor: Windsor, Town (NS)


Program Description

This fun and interactive session is for little ones and their caregivers. There are active games, singing, parachute fun, music and more!

Funding Sources: 

Windsor Recreation Program Budget

Strategies For Sustainability: 

If participants had a positive experience at the program, then they are more likely to tell others and when we offer it again, we may have even more participants registered.

Impact Of Program: 

It was wonderful to see 5 pairs participating in activities together. They looked forward to coming each week because it was FUN. Having an energetic, caring and enthusiastic leader is essential to the program. It was also hands-on and developmentally appropriate which contributed to the success.

Evaluation Tools: 

An evaluation was distributed to parents at the end of the session and communication between the leader and participants helped gauge what worked well and what could be changed.

Key Elements Towards Success: 

It was an activity that caregivers and children could do together. It promoted physical activity, social development and was fun!

Challenges To Meet Them: 

We have offered this program before with low interest. We have tried offering it on different days and at different times of the day. This term we tried 12:30-1:15pm on Tuesdays and that seemed to work the best so far.

Length and Stage of Project: 

It was a four week program but we may look at offering another session later this term.
