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

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.

NEW! COOK AND CREATE TOTS

Come and create with your child as we explore cooking, music and art. Each week, parents will assist their children in the creation of simple snacks, arts and crafts, or musical projects. Your child may get messy while creating masterpieces, so please dress accordingly.

SUPER TOTS

Stretch, hop and run your way through group activities while learning coordination and enhance cooperation skills with peers.

TOTS IN MOTION

Parents and children will get their bodies moving as they strengthen body awareness, flexibility, and motor skills through rhythm and play.


MOVING UP

Classes without parent.

Child needs to be fully toilet-trained. 45-minute classes are designed to help children learn to follow directions, play cooperatively, and enhance social skills. 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.
