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 for 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 a 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.

Lil' Ninjas is high energy and all action! The entry-level to the all-new sport discipline inspired by gymnastics, martial arts, obstacle training, and freestyle movement, the other class goals include listening skills, confidence, trying new things, working through frustration and manners.

Cheetahs is an invitation only class for 4-year olds who have mastered the Elephant curriculum and are ready to experience the "big kids" equipment. The class will focus on JAG’s school aged curriculum while still maintaining a pre-school appropriate class structure. Students will still primarily work in circuits and stations, but will move at a more rapid pace than other pre-school structured classes. View the Cheetahs Curriculum online.
