Preschool 1- (was teddy bears)  30 minute class - $70/6 weeks
This is a parent tot class.  This class is for children that would not do well without parent assistance.  They can start the class at the age they are walking and running easily until they are comfortable participating without parent assistance.  The preschool 1 group will work on body awareness, balance, and parent child bonding.  Parents are expected to assist their child throughout the class period. 

 
Preschool 2 - (was bear cubs)  30 minute class - $70/6 weeks
The preschool 2 class is for children toddler and preschool aged.  This is 2-4 years of age.  Children should be comfortable participating without parent assistance.  This is an introductory class held in our preschool area.  We will work on body awareness, balance, body positions related to gymnastics (shapes), and an introduction to all the gymnastics events.  Children will progress into the preschool 3 class when they have learned the basics and can demonstrate listening skills, the ability to wait in line and equipment safety.  Coaches will notify parents when they feel they are ready to move up. 

Preschool 3 - (was gummy bears)  45 minute class - $80/6 weeks 
The preschool 3 class is a transition class to bridge the gap between the preschool 2 class and the beginner 1 class.  It is for children that have succeeded in the preschool 2 class but are not ready for the full length of the beginner 1 class.  This class is held downstairs in the main gym area.  They work the same skills as the beginner 1 class but in shorter bursts of time.  Once the child can successfully complete an entire class period while maintaining focus, participation and listening capabilities they will be progressed to the beginner 1 class.  Coaches will notify parents when they feel they are ready to move up.
