PRESCHOOL GYMNASTICS

2-5 year old boys & girls


Vision Gymnastics' Beginner Preschool Program is a developmental sequence of movements taught utilizing games, obstacle courses, special equipment, drills and gymnastics. Fundamental motor, gross motor, locomotion, and manipulative skills are all incorporated into a
well structured lesson plan specially designed for children 2 to 5 years old. Through innovative, challenging lessons, our Beginner Program strives to develop and fine-tune many essential qualities in each child. Grouped by age and skill level, our beginners participate
and learn in an atmosphere that enables every child to be successful, thus increasing each child's level of self-esteem. This positive desire to achieve then carries over into their  encounters outside of Vision Gymnastics.
