Parent/Child Program for 4 - 36 months old article

Bugs Class Infant (4 - 10 months old)

Developmental Milestone

At this age, the average infant has an awareness of his environment: noise, music, people, etc. And the brain is developing at an extremely fast rate, taking in and processing massive amounts of information. Many children at this age can sit up (approx. 4-6 mo), are trying to crawl (6-10 mo), or are in the pre-walking phase (8-10mo.). By as early as 6 months, many infants attempt simple fine-motor movements: clapping waving, reaching, and grasping for objects.

The Little Gym Curriculum

  • Group activities introduce children to each other and adults.
  • Activities set to music introduce rhythm, body awareness, language, and number concepts.
  • Parents/child exercises promote core body strength (torso, arms, legs) and prepare children for crawling and walking.
  • Modified, developmentally appropriate gymnastics activities develop strength, body and spatial awareness and balance.
  • Ball and bubble activities facilitate hand-eye coordination.

Birds Class Infants/Toddlers (10 - 19 months old) 

Developmental Milestone

By this age, most children are moving—walking or soon to be. Whether “vertical” or still “horizontal”, children now have the ability to explore their environment and, in the process, can learn to problem solve, take risks and establish a sense of independence. They are also beginning to speak, enjoy being around other children and can start following simple directions. Their increased dexterity, strength and more proportionate bodies allow them to learn and perform more advances physical skills.

The Little Gym Curriculum

  • Gymnastics equipment creates opportunities for exploration problem solving and risk taking.
  • More advanced, developmentally appropriate gymnastics skills and locomotors activities (running, galloping, jumping) develop strength, body and spatial awareness and balance.
  • Group activities that incorporate simple sets of directions and introduce new manipulative equipment develop listening skills, group cooperation and dexterity.

Beasts Class Toddlers (19 months - 2.5 years old)

Developmental Milestone

Children in this age group are on the move - quicker, stronger and faster. They’re ready to learn more complex movements in the “vertical world”: introductory sports skills, locomotors skills with perceptual challenges, jumping off raised platforms onto their feet, creative movement challenges, and beginning tumbling skills. There toddlers also begin to develop a grater understanding of “self” and experience feeling of pride, confidence, embarrassment, and independence. They are also becoming great users of language, speaking and understanding more clearly. With their newfound sense of independence, they are more interested in following directions and doing things by themselves.

The Little Gym Curriculum

  • Warm-up and group activities incorporate animal movements, tumbling skills, sports skills, and motor perceptual challenges.
  • Safe risk-taking opportunities and success-oriented activities that children can perform on their own establish a strong foundation of self-confidence.
  • Children are given more opportunities to listen and follow directions
  • New, more challenging developmentally appropriate gymnastics skills build strength, spatial awareness, balance, overall body coordination, and self-confidence.
 

Super Beasts Class (2.5 - 3 years old)

Developmental Milestone

Children in this age group are on the move- quicker, stronger and faster. They’re ready to learn more complex movements in the “vertical world”: introductory sports skills, locomotors skills with perceptual challenges, jumping off raised platforms onto their feet, creative movement challenges, and beginning tumbling skills. There toddlers also begin to develop a grater understanding of “self” and experience feeling of pride, confidence, embarrassment, and independence. They are also becoming great users of language, speaking and understanding more clearly. With their newfound sense of independence, they are more interested in following directions and doing things by themselves.

The Little Gym Curriculum

  • Periodically, more structured activities, such as group games or activities, are performed without parents. This challenges the children’s ability to follow a set of directions and to function and work together in a group with out parental support. This helps prepare the children for the 3-4 year old class: a structured class without parents.
  • Group activities incorporate fundamental sports skills such as kicking, throwing, catching, and striking.
  • New, more challenging developmentally appropriate gymnastics skills build strength, spatial awareness, balance, overall body coordination, and self-confidence.
