Kindergym

Our Kindergym program is designed for boys and girls ages 2-5 to help develop muscular and cognitive awareness. We will work on fine and gross motor skills, core strength, flexibility, swell as muscle memory and body awareness. This is achieved by using various equipment and obstacle course type set ups to create confidence through repetition. Each week different music and manipulative props such as bean bags, ribbons, and lummi sticks will be used for our 10-minute movement and music part of the class. As a staff, we believe that being physically fit and active while having fun at a young age is important for the overall development of all children.
