Our Class Descriptions
PE for Tiny Tots – 50 minutes 12 – 36 months
In our PE for Tiny Tots class, one coach leads while parents interact with their children and teach them development skills utilizing all our equipment. An obstacle course is set up and toddlers learn very basic gymnastics skills, including rolls, jumps and balance. This introduction to gymnastics focuses on improvement of fine and gross motor skills and ability to follow directions in a fun environment with songs and games.
Preschool Gymnastics – 50 minutes 3 – 5 years old
Preschoolers learn fundamental gymnastics skills in a fun, fast-paced class. During this age, the young children become gradually more and more aware of their bodies and learn to control their movements. These classes focus on the accumulation of skills, the social skills necessary to work in a group, and also the ability to string skills together, mentally and physically. Parents are not out on the floor with their children but watch from our viewing area.
