The Buell Foundation, Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment, United Way of Weld County Promises for Children


“We enjoy working towards the same common goal of increasing physical activity. I know that a lot of my students thrive in other areas of learning after they have got their wiggles out. The activities have been fun to try and learn together.”

- Teresa Brooke, Lead Teacher, Billie Martinez

“I have been utilizing the CATCH personal space activities to help my preschoolers understand the importance of their personal space/bubble. [After they parade around, I direct] them to the ‘blue’ hula hoop and explain that we can share the hula hoop because we have been given permission.”

- Cathy Kirkpatrick, Teacher, 23rd Ave Head Start

“We love CATCH! The language used is appealing and easy to understand for teachers and children!”

- Carly Jacobucci, Site Education Manager, 23rd Ave Head Start

“I enjoy using the CATCH program because it gets my kids motivated to exercise, it gives them energy to try new things, and I look forward to incorporating it in my everyday schedule.”

- Meri Smith, Teacher, Keith McNeil Head Start
