TODDLER SERIES:
Tiny Tots 12 - 24 months
Tumblin' Tots 25 - 40 months

Our Toddler Series is designed to incorporate the earliest aspects of physical fitness and primary development for children ages 12-40 months. Using creative play and nurturing instruction, caregivers and their toddlers are introduced to the magic of movement in gymnastics. Our fantastic facility provides access for the littlest hands and feet to explore gymnastics equipment sized just for them. Activities are developed with caregiver/child bonding in mind and are rooted in sound physical development of small, but growing bodies. As toddlers progress through the series, their physical and social confidence grows towards readiness for our Little Athletes Preschool Series. Parent/caregiver participation and enthusiasm is required in each of our toddler classes.


PRESCHOOL SERIES :
Acro-Kats 3 years
Gym-Tigers 4 - 5 years

Our Preschool Series begins our first separation classes. Children enter the gym with their instructor, while parents and caregivers watch from our mezzanine. Gymnastics provides physical learning for the whole body: through basic skill progression, children work on coordination, strength, balance, spatial awareness, flexibility and more. Each class in the series offers age appropriate curriculum and structures. Our instructors nurture young athletes as they learn to participate in the group setting, while providing appropriate challenges to each child for a great sense of accomplishment.
