Tiny Stars (18 Mos – 3 yrs)

This is a Parent participation class. At least one adult must attend. We emphasize having fun but the children are expected to work a bit more independently each week. Listening and comprehension improves as structure and skills are added to class activities. Children gain new confidence and independence. Each week a new theme is introduced while still working on the core skills.
Parents will be involved as an aid to the children as they develop the basics of rolling, jumping and climbing. In addition, the children are learning to watch, listen and follow basic directions.

In addition to helping children develop motor skills, Tiny Stars gymnastics classes are a great social opportunity for toddlers and moms alike!

Dedicated Area for Toddlers

The Tiny Stcarousel-tiny08ars program is held in our dedicated Kids Clubhouse facility that has special sized equipment for this age group. This smaller gym allows instructors and parents to keep the child more focused in class and listening to instructions.

The gym has an equipment circuit which includes a Rock Climbing Wall, Monkey Bars, Uneven Bars & Rings. The Kids Clubhouse also has a dedicated room for warm up and goodbye stretches and songs. The facility is loaded with stimulating colors and activities.

Our Program Leader

She designs and develops the progressive curriculum and themes for both programs to make it an easy transition for children. The tiny stars program has 26 themes per year and changes every 2 weeks.

When she isn’t working, Kierstyn loves spending time with her twin daughters and husband.

We understand how important this age is and how much family likes to be involved! We ask that no more than two people participate/watch during class. This is because it is in our dedicated Kids Clubhouse Facility that is smaller which is designed to keep the children focused.

What does my child wear to gymnastics?2016-11-07T03:45:24-05:00

At this age shorts, t-shirt, onesie are ok. Leotards are also an option and sizes for this age are carried in our pro-shop.

How is this different than open gym?2016-11-07T03:43:55-05:00

Open gym is strictly Parent/tot. In class an instructor leads parent/tot through skills, games and exercises. Simple tasks are requested so tots can easily be rewarded.

How will gymnastics benefit my child?2016-11-07T03:42:47-05:00

Your Child will experience thrilling moments in the gym which range from rolling on mats to playing group parachute games. Their experience on the gymnastics apparatus is normally in the form of obstacle courses. The tots are encouraged to climb, crawl, and jump from station to station. The objectives at each station are basic motor patterns and therefore, simple to complete. Tot and parent share all of this excitement as they work through each class as partners.
An additional benefit of being involved in gymnastics at this young age is the opportunity to socialize with other children of the same age. Sharing, following simple directions and social skill development are all-important aspects of a Parent/Tot Program. Long verbal explanations and demonstrations by the teacher are kept to a minimum due to the children’s short attention span.

At What Age Should I Enroll My Child?2016-11-07T03:39:21-05:00

Children develop their fundamental movement skills between the ages of 2 and 5. Each stage of a youngster’s development presents critical learning periods. In general, a child will benefit by their involvement in gymnastics regardless of the age that they begin!
