Preschool Gymnastics Classes
PRESCHOOL CLASSES ARE OPENING MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1ST!
This program will aid in the development of various motor and sensory areas. It is a great way to introduce young children into a learning environment and . . . it's FUN!
Because of the pandemic, our preschool classes are 30 minutes in length. The classes being offered combine 3 and 4 yr olds and start in the Sunshine Room and continue the 1/2 hr in the "big" gym to help with social distancing.
The children will be jumping, swinging, climbing and tumbling throughout the class. A developed skill progression system is used to teach gymnastics skills as well as coordination, spatial awareness and agility
We also offer Parent and Tot Classes (18 months to 3 year) that are 30 minutes in length in the big gym. The class ratio for these classes is currently 5:1. We help the parent and child work together in a playful, fun atmosphere to develop the child's hand-eye coordination, body awareness, build strength, agility and flexibility while learning basic gymnastics skills. We incorporate music, games, and themed props to create an enjoyable expereince for both parent and child. We ask that the parents help us with social distancing. All adults are required to wear a face mask.

18 months - 3 yr old - $34/month
3/4 yr old classes - $40/month

Indoor Playground is NOT offered at this time.
You can bring your 3-5 yr olds to Open Gym on Saturdays from 12:30-2:00 pm
The cost is $12 per child.
Remember, if you are bringing a friend's child, they will need to have a release signed by their parent. Download one HERE.
Why Preschool Gymnastics at AOGC?
It’s FUN! Your child loves to move. Moving, running, exploring and learning are all just natural to him/her. We want to keep that thought foremost in his/her mind. By having different shapes of mats (hills, mailbox, barrels) and scaled down real gymnastics equipment (low balance beams, single rail bar, preschool level vault board) we can provide your child with real gymnastic learning and barrels of fun.
It’s a LEARNING EXPERIENCE! Research has proven over and over again how exercise, musical interpretation, and fun can aid in reading readiness and increased spatial reasoning (the ability to detect patterns among objects, which is critical in math and science).
Increases the DEVELOPMENT OF VARIOUS MOTOR AND SENSORY AREAS such as:
Ocular pursuit (tracking)
Directionality and Laterality
Agility and Poise
Our facility is STATE OF THE ART. We have a special room for our Preschool Gymnastics Program that has a spring floor, mirrors and small scale equipment for all events. The preschool classes have access to our 10,000+ square foot gym with a 50 foot trampoline (TumblTrak), a rectangular trampoline and foam training pits.
You make NEW FRIENDS. Where’s a better place than Alley Oop Gymnastics Center to meet new friends for children and parents alike? Parents who care enough to give their children the Alley Oop Gymnastics Program are the type of people you’d want to be with!
Our staff is SAFETY CERTIFIED, EXPERIENCED AND FRIENDLY. Alley Oop’s Staff prides themselves in their credentials. Many of the preschool gymnastics staff is Safety Certified, CPR, First Aid and KAT (USAG certification program specific to preschool gymnastics) Certified. In addition to those certifications, many staff members have years of experience. This year’s staff of 10 teachers has 78 years of combined experience in teaching children and running a gymnastics’ business AND you won’t find a bunch of friendlier people!
Every month the young gymnasts will "show off" the skills they have learned. This is the day to bring your cameras and lots of applause!
