PRESCHOOL THROUGH KINDERGARTEN AGES OF MOTOR DEVELOPMENT THROUGH GYMNASTICS
GYM MINI PROGRAM
The Gym Mini Program (1-5 years) is divided into 4 age groups that help the child transition from a parent-assisted class with little structure to a “solo” class. Focus is on developing motor skills, practicing early learning skills and having FUN on our brightly-colored, mini-sized equipment! We are not training for the Olympics but instead helping the child learn and grow in a safe and encouraging environment.

MINI GYM BUGS (3 years to 3 years 5 months) 45-minute class each week $98/4-week month. Our first step toward going “solo”….The Mini Gym Bug class begins preparation for the “solo” experience. Longer segments of structured activity are introduced. Parents provide guidance as needed but tend to play more of a background role as the child learns to follow and stay with the group. In this class we set up obstacle courses that allow the child to work with the instructor on a skill and then opportunities for them to practice on their own as they move through the different activities. The target teaching ratio for this class is 6:1.
MINI GYM MINIS (3 years 6 months to 4 years 5 months) 45-minute class each week $98/4-week month. For children entering the Mini Gym Mini class, this will be their first class without assistance from their parent. Students will continue to practice listening, following simple directions and taking turns with other students. The format in this class focuses a little bit more on instruction and giving students simple corrections to assist with skill mastery. Children will move through an obstacle course where they learn a skill with the instructor and then have many opportunities to swing, climb, jump, develop strength and coordination by practicing activities on their own.The target teaching ratio for this class is 6:1.
JUMPIN' GYM MINIS (4 years 6 months to 5 years 11 months) 45-minute class each week $98/4-week month. Children entering the Jumpin’ Gym Mini class will be given more opportunities for skill mastery. As children develop they can begin to grasp more concepts and make corrections as they learn basic gymnastic shapes and skills. In this class children are being introduced to skills they will work on in the School-Aged Level 1 program. Children will move through an obstacle course where they learn a skill with the instructor and then have many opportunities to swing, climb, jump, develop strength and coordination by practicing activities on their own. The target teaching ratio for this class is 6:1.
