Our preschool program is designed to help children grow not only physically, but mentally, socially and emotionally, as well. We focus on positive reinforcements for attempts rather than results. We help children to learn that their best effort IS the most important factor in being successful!

Tiny Tots (12-20 months) - A parent-involved class. Children, along with an adult are introduced to music, rhythm, and movement exploration in a bright, colorful and fun gym setting. With the lead from the teacher and one on one time with mom or dad, these little self-directed tots explore their new world and start to develop self-esteem and basic building blocks of skills.
Super Tots (2 1/2- 3 1/2 years) - A parent involved program. At this stage we incorporate an instructor-lead circuit, introducing the children to taking turns and working in a group with the teacher rather than mom or dad. More complex skills start to develop, such as a small cartwheel, a seat drop to stand on trampoline, and a forward roll around the bar! Each class day the children have a “skill of the day”, rewarded with a sticker on their skill card. This program readies the 3 year old for their first independent class- Gym Minis!
Gym Minis (3 year olds) - Kids that are ready to work independently of mom or dad. This class format continues to incorporate music to warm up and close class. Children are introduced to small circuits where they complete one or two skills alone and move to another with a teacher. The “skill of the day” is done with the teacher and a sticker is rewarded for the attempt! Here we’ll start to see work on skipping, backward rolling and donkey kicks, combinations on trampoline, and rolling on the balance beam! Our ratio for the 3 year olds is 5 or 6:1.
GYM KIDS II is the perfect place for our Lakes Area students who have already completed two full terms of GKI; or those referred by their teacher.
