(18 months to 2 years of age)
This class is designed to help toddlers 18 months to 2 years with hand-eye coordination, social skills, and motor skills. At least one parent must be present and participate in the class. Every class period holds its own theme to help make the class more fun.
Kinder Gem 3
(3 years of age)
This class is for children three years of age. With weekly themes put in place to enable fun with the comprehension of gymnastics skills, this class is focused on the most basic of gymnastics skills. This class is the first level that the little ones will attend without the parents tagging along. We encourage all parents to view the class from our viewing area and to be present in the facility during the class.
Kinder Gem 4 & 5
(4 to 5 years of age)
This class is for children four to five years of age. It’s similar to Kinder Gem 3, but with a greater focus on gymnastics skills in preparation for gymnastics and tumbling classes.
