Our unique “Gym School” Program incorporates all the elements of nursery school combined with our comprehensive, well-planned, non-competitive gymnastics and sports program. No other sport in the world offers the physical and mental challenges of gymnastics…the best foundational sport that requires strength, agility, and flexibility….and the ultimate of mind over body. When guided properly during the early childhood years, children develop their optimum fundamental movement skills and body awareness. These concepts are presented so children learn how their bodies move and why. We simply break every activity down into small progressions. Each skill becomes a magical stairway of small successes leading to each major goal. Exploration, guided discovery and positive reinforcement are some key teaching techniques incorporated into our program.
Our school curriculum is planned around weekly themes, our first being “All About Me” where we identify each child’s uniqueness by recognizing his or her own talents. Curriculum concepts consist of letters, numbers, shapes, calendar, weather, math, geography, art, and music. A language rich environment provides for reading, writing and literacy skills. Physical education and computer skills are also incorporated into our program. All of these concepts and activities are woven together to enhance and teach each of the weekly themes. All meet N.Y.S. Education Standards.
