YMCA Preschool Enrichment classes provide knowledge, character development, guidance and encouragement to help youth develop and realize their potential. Younger children participate with a parent, while older children take classes on their own. (A perfect time for mom to join a free group exercise class!).

PARENT/CHILD GYMNASTICS CLASS
LET’S GET ROLLING (Ages 18 months to 3 years old)
Children learn by seeing, hearing, touching, doing, and having fun. The parent participates with the child in climbing, jumping, and balancing. Coordination is learned and developed through fun, active activities. Learning to follow simple directions is emphasized. Classes are 40 minutes.
Parent/child classes (Ages 2-3)
30-minute classes designed to enhance parallel playtime and introduce interaction with other children. Parents are expected to be active participants in class, guiding their child in the activities and explorations. Due to the nature of these parent and child classes, we do not allow siblings to tag along in class unless they are within the age group and are registered participants.
COOK AND CREATE TOTS

It is recommended that these children have had some prior experience in group settings or First Gym classes, and are ready to be apart from their parents.
