CURRICULUM

Kid's Klub Gumbusmonkey hangsOur curriculum is designed to provide children with all the skills they would master in a gymnastic program offered at any of the gymnastic centers in the area. Our goal is to free up time in a parents’ busy evening by providing gymnastic lessons while their child is in daycare. Separate evaluation forms are used for 18 month – 3 year olds and for 3-5 year olds.

Each class is 30 minutes in length. We begin with a short warm up, followed by gymnastic instruction time, and a cool down activity at the end. Our program is 40 weeks long and divided into 4 terms (each 10 weeks long) and 2 sessions (each 20 weeks long). At the end of each term a participation award is given to every child. Every 20 weeks we also send home evaluation sheets so that parents can chart their child’s progress in the Gymbus.
