Child development experts have found that active children develop both physically and mentally faster than children who are less active. Peak’s preschool gymnastics program is a great launching pad for any child to begin to develop a lifelong love for health and physical fitness. Our preschool gymnastics classes focus on balance, body awareness, flexibility and strength, all of which will help any child excel.

PARENT & TOT (AGES 18 MONTHS-3) This class is open to children ages 18 months – 3 years and requires an adult to assist, help supervise, and have fun!

Basic gymnastics/motor skills taught in this class include running, skipping, jumping, swinging, gymnastic body positions, log rolls, forward and backward rolls, tables and much more. These skills will be useful not only in gymnastics, but also for proper development in their everyday life. Children will also be taught basic social skills, such as listening, following instructions and sharing, as well as incorporating fun and learning into our activities (colors, shapes, animals, etc.). These classes provide a great opportunity for a parent and child to bond and participate in skills and fun activities together.
TWINKLING STARS (AGES 3-4) This class is open to children ages 3-4 years (must be potty-trained) and will challenge your child to continue to grow socially and physically.

Skills taught in this class include forward rolls, backward rolls, gymnastic body positions, donkey kicks, cartwheels, various swings on bars, bridge ups and much more!
GYM JAMMERS (AGES 3-5) This is a 1.5 hour dance/gymnastics combo class as they explore ballet, creative movement and gymnastics fundamentals. Students will also learn basic dance and gymnastics terminology, and enjoy fun games and music. This class is great for active kids because they will be performing many dynamic and active movements throughout the class. Along with the gymnastics and dance activities, students will also have to practice good social skills like listening, cooperation, patience, and sharing. Gym Jammers is open to boys and girls ages 3-5 (must be potty-trained).
RISING STARS (AGES 4-5) This class is open to students’ ages 4-5 years (must be potty-trained) and will build upon the skills learned in Twinkling Stars. Students in this class will move at a faster pace, and participate at a higher level and expectation. Students will continue to learn the skills taught in Twinkling Stars but will focus on better technique and skill understanding. This will result in the students having more strength, which is crucial for advancing through skill development. Athletes will gain improved body awareness and control while in this preschool gymnastics class, which helps them not only in gymnastics but in many fine motor activities they will participate in outside of class.
