Sweet Peas Educational Gymnastics is our new preschool program, offering age-appropriate gymnastics activities starting at six months old that foster coordination, balance, core strength, bilateral awareness, and flexibility. Taught in a social, collaborative environment, these classes provide important life lessons in self-awareness, courage, success, and friendship.
This summer, we are offering classes for Three Pees and Four Peas. The full program will be available in the fall!
Wee Peas (6 – 12 months)
Carefully designed for babies learning to sit and crawl, Wee Peas provides our littlest scooters with active learning activities that focus on whole baby development. Wee Peas are given opportunities to move, reach, and grasp in a baby safe environment that is rich with color, sound and tactile experiences. Wee Peas learn to recognize their name in class and react to in identifying themselves to the teacher. Wee Peas enjoy activities that promote visual tracking, core strength and balance needed for sitting and standing.
One Peas (1 Year Old)
One Peas are ready to move! The One Pea curriculum is designed to provide enriching activities in a safe and fun environment. One Peas learn self-awareness and physical adaptation through developmentally appropriate gymnastics activities such as stepping, rolling, balancing, sliding and swinging. One Peas learn baby rhythm and sequencing through physical activities coordinated with music and prompts. One Peas learn to clap, step, count, stop and start, and repeat. Creatures of repetition, hey are beginning to remember what they have learned and they are excited to participate.
Two Peas (2 Years Old)
The Two Pea curriculum offers opportunities for provides large motor skill and gross motor skill development with whole body activities in developmentally appropriate circuits. Two Peas learn to run with developing synchronization; step, hold and balance on alternate feet; roll forward, sideways and backwards on a wedge with a spot; and transfer weight from feet to hands and back. Two Peas play (or observe play); interactively structured games with other Two Pea classmates. They sing and perform physical motions to familiar songs. Our Two Pea goal is to provide fun, quality gymnastics activities that foster the important neural development of our amazing two-year-olds.
Three Peas (3 Years Old) – View Schedule
Three-year-olds are ready to go! Three Peas are gaining increased motor development, eye hand coordination and fine motor skills. The Three Pea curriculum is designed to provide skill development on floor, beam, bars and vault. Three Peas work on forward rolls, straddle rolls and cartwheels. They increase their balance with beam work that includes alternating forward kicks, squat holds, relevé walks and beam crawls. Three Peas develop core strength by learning to draw to a tuck from a straight hang on the bars and execute forward rolls over the bar. Their vault skills include punching the board with both feet, a squat on to a block and donkey kicks.
Four Peas (4 Years Old) – View Schedule
A four-year-old’s increasing coordination makes them faster and more deliberate. Their increasing strength makes them able to perform many new gymnastics skills. Their cognitive development is growing by leaps and bounds, and they are able to interpret and remember learning objectives. Four Peas work on forward rolls, straddle rolls, and backward rolls on both a wedge and on the floor. They are practicing straighter legs and longer holds in the execution of their skills. Four Peas are working on their balance with skills on beam such as straight jumps, alternating kick possé sequences and arabeques. Four Peas are gaining speed and accuracy on the vault. They are mastering their squat on, donkey kicks with horizontal hips and jumping on and off a block.
