Just You & Me classes support the development of a social network for care givers & parents; helping them to get out and about to meet others and their babies. Working moms benefit by creating structured activities for your caregiver and baby; helping to start a routine important in emotional development. Below are descriptions for each age group.

Moving Monkeys (3 months-crawling) Wobblers 30 min
A free class for babies, introducing new sounds and movements through the use of music, bells, hoops, and vivid colors for stimulation. Children are exposed to other adults and children in group activities on floor and tumble track.

Crawling Caterpillars (7 months-walking) Crawlers 45 min (UNLIMITED CLASS)
A class designed to introduce babies to different sounds and movements. We create an environment that helps them to become comfortable with different faces and voices. These activities help little ones start to build a tolerance to sounds and changes, which leads to better sleeping. (Can’t go wrong there!). We utilize music, bells, hoops, and vivid colors to stimulate the infants.

Climbing Crabs (10-17 months) Walkers 45 min (50% off additional CLASS)
The activities in this class have a broader focus on movement and motor skills. Coordination & balance take on a greater role in these classes. This class continues the Crawling Caterpillars goal of supporting the development of a social network. We utilize music, bells, hoops, and vivid colors to stimulate the infants. In this class kids will begin to explore the pres-school floor and bars obstacles.

Jumping Jaguars (18 months-2.2 years) Trotters 45 min
Class activities encourage children to see outside of their own environment as they parallel play. Parents play a very physical role helping their child learn new positions and activities. We also discover our independence by building confidence and self-awareness through special “by myself” activities. Activities at this age are focused on early cognitive development. Children are introduced to some basic gymnastics skills on the balance beam (kick, dip, and hop) bars (open, close and holding on tight). All activities are explored through creative games such as taking a pretend trip to the zoo and other exotic places.

Hopping Hares (2-3.5 years) Runners 45 min
Children are introduced to the concept of separation as a part of their lives. Parents become more of a verbal presence than a physical. While enjoying all this fun we also try to work on taking our turn and remembering our listening ears to foster socialization. We continue to introduce the concept of independence, building confidence and self-awareness through special “kids only” activities. Activities include basic gymnastics skills on the balance beam (kick, dip, and hop) bars (peek a boo, open/close and holding on tight).

The Preschool program is designed to focus on the child’s willingness to attempt challenges and finding success in just trying. The skills are all taught in progressions, with an emphasis on safety. We applaud everything your child tries to do. Given the young age of the children Jump Start’s pre-school classes places an emphasis on movement to release their energy and have fun. Below are descriptions for each age group.

Bouncing Bears: OMO (2.5-3.5 years) 30 min
On My Own: for 2’s that have taken a prior parent tot class and are ready to try on their own.  We continue with the concept of separation and taking our turn. We begin to work on taking direction and begin to explore independence. Activities include basic gymnastics skills on the vault, bars, balance beam and floor.

Leaping Lemurs (3-4 years – coed) 45 min
This class focuses on children’s activities to foster independent work and as an introduction to separation and setting limits for themselves. Children are encouraged to take direction during activities rather than visually mimicking activities. We also explore our independence, building confidence and self-awareness through special “by myself” activities. Activities include basic gymnastics skills on the balance beam (kick, dip, and hop), bars (open/close, chin up, front support).

Tumbling Tigers (Pre-K coed) 45 min
This class focuses on combining more advanced gymnastic skills, while continuing to utilize the foundation built on the balance beam (kicking, dipping, and hopping) and bars (open close, swinging, pullovers) vault (jump one-two feet on spring board). We continue to explore our independence; building confidence and self-awareness, with a greater focus on students setting their own goals and “practicing” independently.  We also practice waiting our turn and learning from others.

Flipping Frogs: (Kindergarten) 55 min
This class focuses on combining basic gymnastics/tumbling skills acquired in previous classes. Progressive skill teaching is utilized to allow children to complete combination skills. More advanced gymnastic skills are introduced while continuing to utilize the foundation built from the pre-school classes as well as compulsory skills dictated by the United States Gymnastics Federation. Beam (kicks, turns and hopping),  bars (swinging, pullovers), vault (jumps-straight, tuck, straddle, dive rolls). We continue to explore our independence; building confidence and self-awareness, with a longer focus on students setting their own goals and “practicing” independently.

Kipping Koals: (5-6 years) 55min
This class helps to ease the transition from our Flipping Frogs class to our K/1st class. We take advantage of a 7:1 student to teacher ratio to keep our groups small and comfortable. This small setting starts right from the warm-up, where kids learn a choreographed warm-up dance that they will perform at our Showcases. We utilize equipment in both the preschool and recreational sides of the gym to build the children’s gymnastics skills and confidence.

Recreation classes are designed to continue to develop the social, emotional and physical skills acquired in the pre-school class through learning more gymnastics. Children will be exposed to the compulsory skills/routines dictated by the United States Gymnastics Federation (USA gymnastics) as the foundation of these classes. All apparatus will be used, vault, bars, beam, floor and tumble track.     Registration Note: Kids will warm up together and then be split up by the coaches into age and ability groups. We do not advertise to the kids which group they are in, these break downs are to help parents understand what the coaches are looking for.
