Philosophy - The program is structured to encourage parent & child interaction in a gymnastics environment. The parent(s) aid their children by providing spotting assistance and helping to keep the Tot focused and involved.
Structure - Parent & Tot and Preschool classes are scheduled concurrently. This environment prepares Tots for the eventual move to the independence of Kindergym. Tots experiment with movement by working on the progressions that lead to the basic movement patterns found in our 14 color/level ‘CanGym’ program which begins at the Preschool level. Boys and girls are coached together. Circuits include the use of bars, beam, trampoline, spring boards, and floor. There is a 8 to 1 ratio of children to instructors, and parent participation is required.
Accomplishment - Students follow our 'CanGym' awards program, but medallions are provided based on time spent in the program rather than the mastering of 'CanGym' skills. Medallions are broken down into Fall, Winter and Spring. The school retains records on the progress of each student to assist in class placement in future sessions.
Program Prerequisites - No Gymnastics Experience Required
