PRE SCHOOL GYMNASTICS PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy of this program is to provide a nurturing preschool environment designed to increase each child’s self-confidence, improve both gross and fine motor skills, teaching your toddler balance and coordination, increasing strength and flexibility along with socialization, fun, making new friends and learning to be a team player.

Classes are taught on gymnastics apparatuses where students learn through structured plan and fun. There are new lesson plans every week, which include trampoline/tumble track/foam pit lessons. Children are divided into age appropriate groups based on maturity level and skill level.

Experts believe that movement at this stage in life is essential in developing hand eye coordination, direction taking skills, motor development, physical education and cooperative learning skills.

Students will learn a formal introduction to Pre Level 1 gymnastics that includes basic tumbling skills and an overall experience that includes all the Olympic events teaching the necessary progressions on the bars, beams, mini-vault, floor exercise (with age appropriate equipment).

This amazing 40-45 min lesson involving FUN, LEARNING and EXCITEMENT will delight your child and bring years of physical benefit and fun!  Join the best class in town  as we develop  the habit of exercise.

In our TumbleBear Gym program, a parent may or may not join the child in class until the child is 3-4 years old. TumbleBear will develop your child’s self-confidence and enhance their physical capabilities. Safety is of utmost importance. Our scaled-down preschool equipment such as trampolines, incline mats, and uneven bars will make it even more fun to come and be a TumbleBear! Our 4/5 Preschool Gymnastics class is more skill oriented and specifically for parents looking for a more serious structured one-hour class for their child who is 4 & 5 years old.

Beginning at age 1 (walking) to age five, we provide a positive experience with physical fitness in class. It’s an enjoyable physical, mental, and social experience for your child. We incorporate a blend of music, gymnastics (bars, beam, tumbling, and trampoline) and the use of small motor equipment such as rhythmic ribbons, hoops, balls, and balloons. We also have great educational themes such as Dinosaur Week, Hollywood Week, and Outer Space Week.
