Here's some of the comments from parents:
"Thank you so much for having this program. It really helped my son learn the things he needed to work on for preschool like waiting his turn and listening to instruction...He just got tested for entering Preschool and he was advanced in tracing letters and numbers. He never traced at home. It was something he learned only at My Gym."
"We are so glad we did the Preschool Prep program at My Gym. Since Sidney loved going to My Gym for Mommy and Me classes it helped with getting her used to being without me and made the transition to Preschool so much easier."
"I loved all the arts and crafts you did with the kids. I hung up every one. James looks forward to it every day...""...The best part was seeing how excited she got as we drove up to My Gym and how she hugged her teachers every day. She loved going to Preschool at My Gym!"
In this age group, teaching physical skills is a top priority but equally important is the development of social skills, as the youngsters become good listeners, follow directions, cooperate in a group, and gain confidence. Children become more independent as teachers are now interacting more directly with them. Parental involvement is gradually decreased through inviting activities with love and understanding, and the children exude pride and self-esteem as they are treated like "big kids."
In addition to having fun with a mix of structured group activities and explore time, this class will incorporate pre-gymnastics, sports skills, fine and gross motor proficiency, and as well as manipulative skills. It's a great class to help in the total development of your child while making memorable moments for you and your child.
See your child strive, conquer goals, and have a "yes I can" attitude! Increased strength and agility developed through our Karate Program give your child a foundation to excel in sports, fitness, and physical education. More advanced punches, kicks, blocks, and Taekwondo stances are learned as your child advances through the program. The benefits don’t stop at the physical, however; compassion, focus, confidence, respect and self-discipline are invaluable lessons addressed in the curriculum. As with all our My Gym classes, our Karate Programs are conducted in a nurturing and supportive atmosphere where children thrive.
We also offer a Mini Karate introductory class for ages 3-5.
