Jungle Jym-tastics!™, our preschool-aged gymnastics program for ages 3 and 4, focuses on the development of fine and gross motor skills, playground readiness, social skills, and gymnastics skills, as well as helping to develop proprioceptive and vestibular integrations. Our specially designed gymnastics equipment is scaled to fit toddlers' and preschoolers' that is smaller hands and bodies allowing our tiniest athletes to do gymnastics “just like the big kids.” Circuits and stations assure that these active children do not have downtime and in ground trampolines and foam pits provide safe environment for these young jumpers. While age is the general guideline for how our classes are organized, our curriculum allows for flexibility that acknowledges that children develop at different rates.
