Lesson plans are scheduled every 1-2 weeks. Repetition is key at this age and repeating a lesson plan encourages better understanding of the skills being taught as well as allowing for more challenging exercises once the basic lesson plan skills have been mastered. We start off our classes with a variety of warm up exercises to get the children moving. From there basic stretches and shapes are introduced. We move on to our circuits which include learning gymnastics skills and terminology while using both pre school and olympic sized equipment. Classes are designed to help children develop balance, body awareness, strength, flexibility and coordination. Carefully designed gymnastics lesson plans incorporate themes to provide a safe and exciting progression that will challenge each child to the best of their ability throughout the year.
Pre-School Classes are offered for three groups:
-Shooting Stars 3 - 4.5 years old
-Super Stars 4.5 - 6.5 years old
