The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) announced that as January, its popular Nature Playtimes will be sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM).
PEEC’s Nature Playtimes are every Monday except holidays, from 10-11 a.m. Toddlers, preschoolers and their caregivers are invited to join these free programs, which typically include a craft, story and outside activity.
The sponsorship is part of BCBSNM’s Healthy Kids, Healthy Families initiative, which works with nonprofit organizations like PEEC to improve the health status of children.
Healthy Kids, Healthy Families is part of BCBSNM’s commitment to help stem the rising tide of obesity and related chronic conditions like diabetes, to help children and their families get healthy and stay healthy.
The initiative focuses on engaging children and their families in understanding the importance of nutritious food, raising the level of physical activity, improving immunizations rates and promoting safe environments.
The program is a perfect fit with PEEC, whose mission is to enrich people’s lives by strengthening their connection with nature. Nature Playtimes is one program that targets children, getting them outside, and enjoying nature from an early age.
