Children will look forward to “Gym Jam Day” each week!
Lessons are half an hour and start with a warm up that includes either a game (for school aged participants) or a song and dance (for younger participants). A short set of safe, kid-appealing stretches follows. Next, skills are taught and practiced in a fun circuit that includes bars, beams, air tracks, soft boxes, and more. There’s a new theme each week, complete with props and decor! Class concludes with a cool-down activity and with a game if time permits.
Our curriculum has been organized such that the most basic and important skills are taught first, and other skills follow in a developmentally appropriate order. Initially, priority is given to fundamental movement skills (FMS) such as jumping, balancing, rolling, striking, etc. Some fundamental movement skills- specifically ball skills- are not inherent in gymnastics, so we have taken extra steps to ensure that they are also focused on. As children master basic FMS (usually children in after school care), we up the ante and prioritize gymnastics-specific skills.
Because dayhomes have the ability to be somewhat flexible with daily and weekly program planning, we also include Gym Jam “homework” to be optionally practiced during the rest of the week! This way, it’s easy to incorporate awesomely fun physical activity into your daily day-home routine!
Ideal for ages 18 months to 10 years.
Cost is only $100 per visit!
