CHILD DEVELOPMENT CENTERS YOUTH SPORTS & FITNESS (S&F) The Army provides care in a Multi-Age group setting. The concept of the Multi-Age classroom is to provide a Family-style environment where the children learn from and nurture each other. Children experience fewer transitions while in the Multi-Age childcare setting, giving them more time to bond with their primary caregiver. Children also benefit widely from interacting with classmates who are older and younger. They learn important principles of citizenship, relationships, respect, patience, and self-esteem. Utilizing a creative curriculum, our approach balances both teacher-directed and child-initiated learning, with an emphasis on responding to children’s learning styles and building on their strengths and interests.
The Fort Riley Youth Sports & Fitness Program is dedicated to being our patrons’ first choice by providing quality sports and fitness activities for children, ages 3-18.
