The preschool and kindergarten programs provide specifically designed enjoyable classes for children 1 1/2 through 5 years old. These classes guide the child in his/her motor development. The classes last 50 minutes and the teaching ratio is approximately 7 children to 1 instructor. To best serve the rapidly growing children, the program is divided into 3 age groups: Parent Tot, 3 years old, and 4/5 years old.


Parent-Tot Classes

This innovative class for tots ages 18 months to three years provides the child (guided by one of his or her parents) with his/her first structured exercise experience in a pleasant and colorful learning atmosphere. The classes include a 10 minute warm-up period, which incorporates music and stretching concepts. As in our general program, the children then break up into their individual classes and follow the lesson plan for the week on the pieces of apparatus. Through the use of the gymnastics equipment, including the trampoline and the exploration of large pre-school developmental equipment, your child will not only enhance his/her balance and coordination, but will enjoy quality time with Mom or Dad!


Three-Year-Old Classes

At three years of age, your child will take his/her gymnastics class on their own. Parents are always welcome to observe from one of our two lounge areas. While working on strength, coordination, flexibility, and balance, your three-year-old is encouraged to explore and discover body movement, awareness, and expression. Our program utilizes the newest and most imaginative pre-school equipment, as well as the gymnastics apparatus.


Four- and Five-Year-Old Classes

This challenging class is a step above the three-year-old program. It emphasizes the skills mentioned above, and utiltizes the child's learned coordination and awareness to further develop gymnastics skills such as basic rolls, cartwheels, handstands, etc. This class is a wonderful opportunity for your four to five-year-old to enhance self-esteem, self-confidence, and their ability to work both independently and with others.


Off-Schedule 5 Year Olds

The Academy also offers 5-6 year old classes Monday through Friday at 3:45 pm, Saturdays at 10:00 and 11:15am, and Wednesdays at 5:00 pm for those students who cannot attend during the day. These classes follow the general program schedule and are meant only for those who cannot attend during the regularly scheduled pre-school hours.
