Pre School Gymnastics 

    ​
What are the benefits of Pre School gymnastics?
 
The world of Preschool gymnastics exposes your child to more than just physical agility!
Participating in a class environment at an early age is crucial to helping a child adapt to a school setting.
Gymnastics participation is no different.
They will learn social skills like listening while getting instructions and then putting into practice what they have been told. They will learn to consider others, take turns and work in a group!
Learning a new skill helps to show a child that success requires repetition. The joy of mastering a skill after multiple repetitions is the ultimate benefit in helping a child gain the confidence needed to succeed.
Participating in gymnastics will help your child improve their motor skills, co-ordination, balance, strength, and agility. And, they will have a ton of fun doing it! 
Children naturally want to move and to challenge themselves as they explore, develop, and master physical abilities. So let them move with us in a space that is created just for that purpose! In our pre-school classes they get to climb, run, jump, swing, and roll to their hearts delight as they gain the basic foundational skills for gymnastics.

Your child is free to roam, jump and play under the watchful eye of their grown up!

PlayGym is a chance for little ones to run off some energy and explore their body’s capabilities in a safe environment.
