Busy crawlers and walkers will enjoy climbing, sliding, and flipping over age-appropriate obstacles during this fun and interactive class. With the use of interactive songs, structured and free exploration circuits, magical bubbles and parachute games each class will capture their senses and imagination. With their endless curiosity at this age, each new activity will help them to gain strength, balance, coordination and better muscle control.
Each day is a new discovery in this fun-filled class. Your coach will lead you and your child through the basics of gymnastics in a variety of activities and circuits. As a team you will work towards accomplishing the skills in the circuits, as well as taking direction in a group setting. The coaches recognize that this may be the first structured group activity for children of this age. They are there to support and guide you with techniques on how to safely assist your child, while keeping them active and engaged. Music, games, balls, ribbons, parachute and other interactive activities are all included.
This structured class is cheerful and fun, and will help your child’s coordination and confidence grow. With the assistance of an adult, your child will experience a great variety of gymnastics equipment. The unique circuits are changed each week to follow a theme, and they work towards accomplishing an age-appropriate skill (balances, forward rolls, mini handstands and more). We work on developing their skills while a parent is nearby for encouragement. Through the use of manipulative objects such as balls, hoops, ribbons and beanbags, your child will begin to develop rhythm, fine motor and listening skills.
