JR. GYM MONKEYS (Ages 14-36 months for 45 minutes)

Join your child on their journey as they explore the world around them. This class is designed for children ages 14 month-36 months.  Help your child to use specialized preschool gymnastics equipment to explore concepts like running, hopping, rolling, jumping, supporting, climbing, and balancing and swinging.  Your child should continue in Jr. Gym Monkeys until he or she is ready to attend class alone.

 

GYM MONKEYS (Ages 3-4 years for 45 minutes)
This is your child’s first experience in an independent class!  Children ages 3-4 are expected to be able to follow an instructor’s directions and to act independently.  In order to facilitate the transition from Jr. Gym Monkeys to Gym Monkeys, it is best for parents to wait outside of the preschool gym.  Your child will use specialized equipment to refine concepts previously explored in Jr. Gym Monkeys.

 

FANTASTIC FOURS (Ages 4 years for 1 hour)

This class is for 4-year-olds who have participated in at least one session of the Gym Monkeys program and are physically, mentally and socially prepared to move from the preschool gym to the “Big Gym.”  Fantastic Fours follow the Beginner Gymnastics Curriculum.
