Gym Kids 1

Age: 3 years

This class is to work on creating the Independent Listener. Children will work on doing class on their own, interacting in a structured environment without parents, where the focus is on developing listening skills, taking turns, and sharing.
This is the first class where the children are without parents. The child will be exposed to a variety of external stimuli such as directive music, warm ups and gymnastics skills. By the end of this program they should be comfortable in social settings, express a desire to explore their surroundings, and life skills such as taking turns and sharing. All of this while starting to develop physical skills such as coordination, strength, and balance!

Gym Kids 2

Age: 4 – 5 years

This class goal is to create Active Learners and Confident Kids. They love to engage in their surroundings while focusing on skill acquisition and progressions. While continuing working on listening skills and taking turns. We will always challenge every child and take risks while instilling the confidence & self-esteem they need when they are doing all their twists and turns.
Due to the increased attention span, and verbal and listening skills they will focus a lot on skill acquisition and progressions. Children are now introduced to conditioning runs with line leaders, group tumbling to review, refine, and reinforce previous skills, and longer stations will help accomplish skill growth. When they are working on their cognitive development by things like skill sequencing and their physical development will also be challenged by working on their body control and special awareness when working on skills.
