Gymini Crickets is our parent participation class for toddlers who are walking up through 36 months of age who are not quite ready to leave mom or dad. This class is designed to allow toddlers to explore the gymnastics equipment around the gym in a safe and fun environment. Your child will learn basic gymnastics skills on the different gymnastics events along with body and spatial awareness, age appropriate gross motor skills, eye – hand coordination, all while building self-esteem and social skills.
This class is 45 minutes total, beginning with about 10 minutes of warm-up songs and stretching before going through three different event circuits with a coach. These circuits include many different types of movement including crawling, climbing and jumping along with progressions for beginning gymnastics skills. These classes also help prepare the young ones for preschool by using lesson plans that incorporate counting, ABC’s, color naming, etc. Following our circuits we give parents and children some free time to explore and play around the gym. Our trained staff will show you how to safely spot and assist your toddler throughout the gym, as well as, help you bond and witness the many daily successes that your toddler will achieve throughout their time in our program.
