At Bright Stars, we know that there is no better time for your children to grow and learn more rapidly than from the age of 1 until they enter Kindergarten. Our preschool classes and gymnastics lesson plans were designed with that in mind. All of our preschool gymnastics classes are taught in our main gym as well as our specially designed preschool room which will allow your child feel more secure and allows them to better maintain focus. Your child will participate in age-appropriate activities designed to enhance coordination, strength, flexibility, hand-eye coordination, and exploration while learning gymnastics on specially designed equipment just their size.
Our primary goal is to create a fun environment where we build a strong foundation of gymnastics skills to take them wherever they choose to go in sports. All of our preschool classes have an ideal child/instructor ratio which allows the instructor to have more time to focus on each child.
We offer a free trial class. Be sure to call 609.926.2682 to set it up!
Boys and Girls should wear comfortable clothing to class. Girls should wear a leotard and have their hair pulled back.
Parent Tot (Boys and Girls - 18months - 3yrs.) 45 Minutes
Our preschool size equipment and circuits designed specifically for little ones allows our our “Parent/Tot” classes to work on gross motor skills in a playful, socially enriched environment. Classes are based on progressive lesson plans and learning objectives are met through music, repetition, encouragement and recognition. Basic gymnastics skills are introduced such as rolling, swinging, and balancing. This is an excellent way for children to become comfortable with the gym environment as well as following instruction. It also allows for the development of social skills. (This is a parent participation where an adult must go into the gym with the child.)
“Many classes to choose from! Great staff that is just the right combo of positive, motivational, and tough” – B.E.
