The Recreation Division and the Wellmark 3 point Play Program have coordinated an exercise program for parents and toddlers (children ages 3-5). Parents and toddlers will work at fitness stations that concentrate on balance, strength, endurance and balance. No fee or registration is required.

What a terrific idea! My husband and I found out that at early ages, especially at two and three years, the important thing is to remember that whatever new activity you're introducing a child to must be fun. Play is a child's work. Splashing around in the water with no pressure, unstructured play, is the best way to introduce a toddler to swimming. With bicycle helmets, don't force. Give a two-year-old a child-size helmet and let him play with it, put it on, take it off, carry toys in it, whatever. If it ain't fun, it ain't happening.
