Dutchess County And Orange County NY Daycares And Preschools Join “MOVEMENT“ With HOP-N-HEALTHY Preschool Program


Preschool Programs play a crucial role in laying the foundation for healthy lifelong habits. Many, if not all, parents, caregivers and providers are now well aware that the Experts recommend toddlers and preschoolers get 30 continuous minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity on a daily basis.

With so many children in early childcare settings from morning until evening, little time or energy is left after pick-up for parents to find a quality program for their child, let alone one that meets the expert suggested guidelines. More and more families are facing this dilemma, and parents are seeking a solution from their trusted, sympathetic childcare providers. Today, when parents begin the thoughtful search for a quality early childcare experience for their child, a new question has been added to the host of those most frequently asked. Parents now want to know, “In addition to going out on the playground, what other exercise will my child get on a daily basis?”

It brings great comfort knowing that there are quality providers out there that actually take great pride in going above and beyond to meet the needs and requests of the families they serve. Many Program Directors of childcare facilities now recognize the importance of going the extra mile to incorporate moderate-to-vigorous physical activities, and are diligently reassessing their budgets or seeking grant money to bring in programs like HOP-N-HEALTHY, Inc.

Ginny Leake, Creator/Owner of HOP-N-HEALTHY, Inc. has specifically designed an affordable, quality exercise program for toddlers/preschoolers in response to this dilemma. Ms. Leake has twin preschoolers herself, and as a concerned mother and Certified Children’s Fitness Specialist, she has focused her passion, energy and experience on being part of the solution. HOP-N-HEALTHY strives to meet the physical and social needs of each child, the financial needs of parents, along with the program and budget concerns of childcare providers. HOP-N-HEALTHY classes are unique in that they are not yoga, stretching or activities where children are stationary or waiting in-line. Children are constantly moving from start to finish, classes are constantly changing, and development of necessary gross motor and basic sports skills are always the focus.

HOP-N-HEALTHY classes have been well received both in the community as well as in early childcare settings. Ms. Leake shares, “The positive feedback we’re receiving is a dream come true! We look forward to enhancing and expanding the program while never losing sight of our mission to provide a program based on quality and affordability.”

Currently, HOP-N-HEALTHY travels into various childcare facilites in Dutchess County and have recently embarked on an expansion phase into Orange County. The staff at CareBear Day Care of Hyde Park, NY are more than happy since having added HOP-N-HEALTHY to their program. They’ve said, “The kids and teachers wait all week for HOP-N-HEALTHY Class and love every minute of it. Miss Ginny has new activities each week for the children to look forward to. Miss Ginny keeps the program fresh with new movements and activities while still incorporating previously learned skills. The sessions with her allow the children a fresh new face in the classroom to help them learn how to be healthy children. It allows the children to grow up having a positive experience with exercise and a better understanding of what healthy foods are and how important they are to fuel their little growing bodies. HOP-N-HEALTHY has been and continues to be a wonderful addition to our program here at CareBear Day Care and we wouldn’t trade it for anything!!!”
