1-Hour Class | Ages: (18 mos. – 2 ½) & (2 ½ – 3 ½)
Play with a purpose! This program is designed to introduce young children to the sport of gymnastics with the assistance of an adult. The adult and child move freely throughout the gym exploring each preschool station at their own pace. Your child will develop overall body coordination, balance, strength, flexibility, and poise with musical games, obstacle courses, and trampoline. In addition, gross and fine motor skill will be enhanced with activities such as hitting, throwing, shooting, catching, and running, jumping and rolling.
Enjoy this time with your child while helping them meet new challenges, practice skills and experience success. Parents can enjoy the opportunity of meeting other parents with whom they share common experiences and concerns.
