Our preschool program is designed to incorporate the earliest aspects of physical fitness and primary development for children starting as young as 18 months old, up to 5 years old. During the early stages of the parent/tot classes, special consideration is given to parental/caregiver bonding and as the child progresses, ultimately concludes with the child's ability to separate and enter our next levels of gymnastics training and motor skill development.
"Baby Giants": Parent/Tot Class, Ages 18 - 36 mos. 45 min (Parent/caregiver participation and enthusiasm is required!).
Using creative play and nurturing instruction, parents and their young toddlers are introduced to the initial basic movements of gymnastics. Age-appropriate activities and a flexible class environment provide the parent and child with the freedom to explore and enjoy movement individually. Toddlers must be walking to participate.
"Giants": Beginner/Intermediate preschool class. Entry level, 55 min. Ages 3-5 co-ed.
Our 3-5 year old beginner preschool classes are designed to encourage group activity as well as individual participation, and keep your child excited about gymnastics. Classes provide an overall balance of fun within a structured teaching environment where children begin to accomplish their own goals within the structure of the class. The 3-5 year old preschool classes build a strong foundation for your child to develop a sense of athletic achievement, self-esteem, and social skills that will last a lifetime. Individual 3-5 Year old preschool classes are 55 minutes in length.
"Twisters": Advanced Preschool. Requires evaluation/selection by AGA staff. 85min class, ages 4-5yo Girls only.
AGA's "Twister" class places a significant focus on the basic skills your child will need in order to successfully progress into either the recreational, or potentially the team, programs at AGA. Your child will leave this class with a full understanding of basic gymnastics skills, apparatus, terminology, and safety measures that need to be taken to properly execute the gymnastics skills required for continued success in the sport. Students get to enjoy the comfortable size and familiarity of the "Giants" class, plus try some of the “big kid” equipment on for size! This class gives your child the opportunity to really flourish physically and mentally. Enrollment in the Twisters class is based on instructor evaluation. Please see your child’s coach or the Pre-School program director for additional information.
