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. 


FIRST GYM

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. Must be appropriate age at the time the class begins.
