PRESCHOOL THROUGH KINDERGARTEN AGES OF MOTOR DEVELOPMENT THROUGH GYMNASTICS
The Gym Mini Program has been developed to promote basic motor skills as they apply to all physical activity. In this program, we do not strive to train for the Olympics, but instead we emphasize physical and social development using our specialized motor development equipment as well as our adapted gymnastics equipment with our positive, high-energy staff! The Gym Mini Program is divided into four types of classes:
RUG BUGS (1 year to 2 years 11 months) This is a movement exploration program where the children are allowed to play on exciting apparatus. Parental participation is required in this class. The instructor will give the parents guidance on what to do with their child around the gym in a semi-structured atmosphere.
MINI GYM BUGS (3 years to 3 years 5 months) This is a transition level to prepare the children for structured classes. The child must be able to follow directions from an instructor. Parents participate only as needed while the child develops independence and basic concentration skills. This class will work on developing jumping, climbing, locomotor skills, and rhythmic skills as well as social skills through interaction with the other children. The target teaching ratio for this class is 6:1.
MINI GYM MINIS (3 years 6 months to 4 years 5 months) For the child who can stay with the class and follow directions without the parent. Children in this level will work in a structured fun atmosphere. This class will work on developing jumping, climbing, basic strength and flexibility, rhythmic skills as well as social skills through interaction with the other children. The target teaching ratio for this class is 6:1.
JUMPIN' GYM MINIS (4 years 6 months to 5 years 11 months) Your "bundle of energy" will find this class challenging and exciting. Climbing, jumping, running, swinging on, over, and through full-sized gymnastics equipment and pre-school equipment will develop locomotor and coordination skills, flexibility, and strength. This is also the transitional level which connects the Gym-Mini-Cricket program with our recreational gymnastics program. Gymnastics skill development is introduced at this level complemented with continued work on fundamental movement concepts. The target teaching ratio for this class is 6:1.
