CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 Toddler  (walking to 24 months)

This is a class in which the confident walker turns his/her attention to other forms of movement—climbing, jumping, rolling, etc.  A parent participates in the class with their child and serves as the child’s primary model.

 

Munchkins  (2 to 3 years)

It’s during this class that the child learns to focus his/her attention on the teacher.  The parent remains active in the class as an interpreter, motivator and sometimes partner.  During activities that require partners, because of short attention spans and the emotional and social instability of children this age, it’s best to have a partner actively involved in the class.

 

Kinderkiddies  (3 to 4 years)

In this class the children are being prepared for being on their own.  More structure is added and the concepts of lines and taking turns are introduced.  They usually are not quite ready to give up Mom or Dad completely.  The parent remains in the class to provide support and needed security.

 

Kiddies Plus (3-1/2 to 4 years)

In this class the children are on their own.  The class size is smaller and the class is intended for children who are able to be on their own. Must be 3 yrs., 6 months old on 1st day of class.

 

Kinderkids 1 (4 to 5 years)

Here the children are truly on their own.  The thought of having their own teacher pleases them.  The parent has stepped out of the program at this point and the teacher becomes the primary model for the child.

 

Kinderkids 2 (5-6 years)

In this program the curriculum emphasis shifts to gymnastics.  Here your child will be getting prepared for their graduation from the Tiny Tot Fitness Program to the Developmental Gymnastics Program.
