Wellness and Nutrition Program: Promoting Healthy Eating and Active Play

At Persimmon Early Learning, we provide children with well-rounded, quality child care. Since 2017, our Wellness Program has incorporated increased physical activity and nutrition education into each day. We work alongside local farms, Boulder County Public Health, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to achieve this goal. We bring instructors to teach yoga and other classes like music and dance into our classrooms. Our staff Wellness Coordinator teaches all the nutrition classes as well as most of the physical activity classes.

Our indoor and outdoor learning areas for each age group provide plenty of space for active play. In good weather, children spend as much time outdoors exploring nature as possible. Our newly remodeled outdoor spaces were each designed to be age-appropriate and offer all the learning benefits of an indoor classroom.

To learn more, contact Grace Linnabary, our wellness coordinator, at glinnabary@ywcaboulder.org, or call Persimmon Early Learning at (303) 449-1951, x117.

"I am so thankful for the program and love how it integrates nutrition, movement, and yoga into my daughter’s preschool days. She has learned so much and demonstrates her learning by playing games at home, helping prepare healthy foods, and using breathing exercises and yoga to relax. The teachers and curriculum have set a strong foundation, positively shaping who my daughter is and who she will become in the future. She is off to a great start! Thank you!"

"I like to learn about vegetables and making smoothies. It convinced me to eat my vegetables because it helps me grow. I also like doing yoga with Ms. Tori and Ms. Stacey."
