As the end of Summer draws near, many of us are planning our little ones’ Fall Schedules…deciding what classes he or she might enjoy, considering ways to keep him or her active and engaged with other toddlers/preschoolers. Gym America has many classes perfect for active, sociable toddlers and preschoolers!
Parent and Tot Class
The gym’s Parent and Tot class, which is available at different times, throughout the week, is a wonderful option for a class that you and your little one can partake in together!
Each class begins with a warm-up emphasizing social skills, self-esteem, body positions, and gymnastics terminology. Warm-up time uses fun props such as ribbons, scarfs, musical instruments and great music. Students learn skills in each event using the floor circuit for tumbling skills, as well as balance beams, bars, and a vault just their size. Every week there is a different theme incorporated into the class. Some themes they have done in the past include balloons, parachutes, numbers, colors, animals, and many more.
These weekly themed, Parent and Tot classes are for children ages 18 months to 5 years. The classes are 45 minutes long, with a 7 to 1 student to teacher ratio.
Furthermore, there are openings for the Parent and Tot class in the Fall:
Tuesday: 11:00 – 11:45 AM
Thursday: 11:00 – 11:45 AM
Friday: 9:00 – 9:45 AM
Saturday: 10:00 – 10:45 and 11:00 – 11:45 AM
Preschool Gymnastics classes are offered daily, both in the morning and afternoon. There are 3 and 4 year-old classes and 4 & 5 year old classes. The ratio is still about 1 to 7, but the parents do not participate (great, large viewing windows in the lobby).

Parent’s Night Out: A Review
Gym America hosted their first Parent’s Night Out, in early August. Our 4-year-old, twin boys attended, along with their good buddy, Ali. They had a blast! We dropped them off, promptly at 5:30 PM. The group of children was small, and all about 7 and younger. The two sitters were very friendly and excited to spend the evening with the kids! They did lots of gymnastics, roasted s’mores, enjoyed warm cocoa, and played with sidewalk chalk. Upon picking the boys up, at 8 PM, Teddy asked us, “Can we come again next week?!”.
We enjoyed a yummy dinner, with our friends and even had some time to shop at Briarwood Mall. For only $30 (mention A2Kids.com and you will receive $5, when you register!) you have a 2 and 1/2 hour, kid-free evening, and your children have a fun-filled evening with other children!
There are two more ‘Parents Night Out’ events: Saturday, September 9th and Saturday, October 14th…register today (734-971-1667)! And DON’T FORGET to mention A2Kids.com, for a discounted price!
