Preschool 3 1/2 Yrs. ~ Monday or Wednesday

Allowing for the 3 1/2 - 5 year olds’ greater attention span, this longer class continues to focus on improving perceptual motor skills, locomotor skills, and overall kinesthetic and spatial awareness. The curriculum further emphasizes the teaching of basic gymnastics skills on Olympic apparatus and introduces children to our  preschool gymnastics program. The children attend classes on their own with the instructor as the primary model and guide. Our preschool program consists of 3 progressive levels of gymnastics skills. New students enter into level 1. After successfully completing the level 1 skills, the child will receive a certificate of accomplishment and advance to level 2. It usually takes a full term to accomplish this. Included in this program is a skill poster students take home and use to chart their progress. When a skill is successfully completed, the child will be awarded a star that can be taken home and placed on their chart.

Through the use of music and games, the class encourages both movement education and creative expression. The parents’ role in this 45 minute class is one of support and security

BENEFITs of our program

Children’s self-confidence grows as their physical fitness level rises. Hillsdale Gymnastics & Dance Centers’ unique approach of cooperative, class-directed instruction creates the ideal environment for enhancing children’s development. Our classes positively affect children in many ways including physical coordination, agility, endurance, strength, balance, gross motor skills, and fine motor skills..

 The most important ingredient in our program is FUN. Kids will gladly join an activity that is really fun. Our fitness exercises are combined with fun activities and challenges.     Gymnastics develops the child’s body and mind. We know that you are keenly aware of your child’s need for developing self confidence and physical health. Even with limited motor skills, the young child realizes that he or she just achieved something special after completing that first cartwheel, back walkover, or somersault. The child’s delight in that skill now propels them to achieve again and again.     An added benefit for the child going into team sports is an early knowledge and use of gymnastics. These skills will greatly enhance the young athlete’s ability to contribute while playing any sport. Simply put, there isn’t any better way than gymnastics to build strong and flexible bodies and alert minds.
