Understanding the reflexes that are the building blocks for all perceptual motor development, our lesson plans are age and ability specific. KinderGym, KinderStars, NewStars, MiniStars, and SuperStars classes promote improved kinesthetic awareness (body and space); loco motor skills, balance, hand-eye and foot-eye coordination, as well as communication and social skills.
Ages 1 - 3
This is a parent participation class in which our instructors guide the parents on how to help their children to properly use our gymnastics equipment safely and effectively. Individual movement exploration, guided discovery, and minimal organized activities are included in the curriculum of perceptive motor development for toddlers. Additional benefits include the opportunity to socialize with other children of the same age, learning to share, and following simple directions.
Ages 2.5 to 3.5
A parent participation class for 2.5 to 3.5 year old students that still may need the security of a parent. Designed for the child that is working on separation or being able to focus on the instructor, slightly more structured than KynderGym but not yet an independent class. Transitional class with the goal of having the child participate independently by the end of the session.
This is our first level of structured gymnastics without parent participation. This class emphasizes fundamental gymnastics positions and basic skills on all gymnastics apparatus and floor exercise as well as gross motor activities, games, and individual movement explorations, emphasizing social as well as physical development.
Gross and fine motor skill activities, cooperative games, and individual movement exploration are the emphasis at this level with fundamental recreational gymnastics skills on all apparatus and floor exercise. The teachers encourage problem solving and creative thinking as the children begin longer skill combinations and cooperative work.
Gymnastics skills, flexibility, and strength development are emphasized at this level. Continued work on problem solving, creative thinking, social and language skills are also incorporated in the class in order to help prepare the student for classroom settings.
