Parent & Tots (12 months-2 years)
Our Parent and Tot class is for students 12 to 36 months to further their natural curiosity and exploration in a safe and fun learning environment with mom, dad, and/or caregivers.
With specific, progressive, age appropriate lesson plans and weekly themes, your toddler is sure to grow, develop, and meet new friends.
Studies have shown that young children who participate in gymnastics benefit in 10 areas:
- Vestibular - sense of balance
- Proprioception - understand space and position
- Social skills - taking turns, sharing and peer interaction
- Classroom skills listening, following directions, staying with class
- Active Play - establishing exercise fun
- Confidence - learning new skills, encouragement
- Courage - overcoming fears, trying hard things
- Strength - use/development of muscles
- Flexibility - stretching
- Foundation - preparation for future activities
All of our Parent and Tot classes follow a semi-structured format where the students are introduced to following circuits in sequential order with the aid of their parent and/or caregiver before they are allowed to explore. The use of preschool sized equipment built just for little ones is incorporated within the classes. Students must be walking. A parent or caregiver must remain with each child for the duration of the class. The length of the class is 30-minutes.
