CATCH researchers continue to gather evidence that reaching children at a young age improves chances of embracing healthy messages and behaviors for a lifetime.
CATCH Early Childhood (CEC) is designed to nurture a love of physical activity, provide an introduction to classroom-based gardening and nutrition, and encourage healthy eating in children ages 3-5. Little ones are motivated to walk, run, jump, dance and move their whole bodies while playing and having fun.
The CATCH Early Childhood Coordination Toolkit (PDF) is now available for download on Digital CATCH!
CATCH is an official partner of the National Head Start Association, and has recently partnered with The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to distribute sun protection education to early childhood programs.
