Every child deserves an unfair advantage. Some of our preschoolers may become tumblers and cheerleaders, but most will not. We do hope that they all go on to find a sport or activity that they love, the way we love tumbling. That being said, tumbling is the perfect first step for any small child to develop skills for the future, whether they are physical, cognitive, or social skills, our program addresses the whole child as a work in progress.
Classes are separated by age to allow peer group development and skill diversification. All lessons are progressive in development and focus on jumping, balancing, large and small motor development, spatial awareness, hand/eye and hand/foot coordination as well as inverted support.
We also include many kindergarten-readiness skills like learning letters, numbers, grouping, colors, and social development.
The program starts with
- Parent Tot Class: (15-24 months) In this program, the parent is in included in participation, not only to help guide the child, but to have constructive playtime with them.
- Preschool: (ages 3-4 years) This class is the next step in the progression of our tumbling program. This class incorporates kindergarten readiness skills, like colors, shapes, numbers and letters as well as providing movement education basic building blocks. As well as large and small motor skills, tumbling progressions, balance, jumping, etc.
- Preschool: (ages 5-6 years) This is where a child can really “launch” into skill development. It provides a good transition into the developmental programs of cheerleading, tumbling, or fitness.
