Children are getting instructional gymnastics, basic motor skills, class room skills, and having fun while being physical. Children are grouped by age to work with kids their own age, regardless of skills.
Our Tumble Bee Program is structured where 3 year old can go into class independent of their parents. Prior to that they only skill they need to join a parent/toddler class is the ability to walk with stability.

The Tumble Bee Program is designed for boys and girls from ages walking through kindergarten. Our curriculum is designed to stimulate learning through fun for each child and to create a healthy and enjoyable experience that your child will look forward to week after week. The curriculum addresses each child's age, developmental stage, and gymnastic ability. Our Tumble Bee instructors are highly imaginative, well-trained individuals who continually bring knowledge, energy and fun to the program. Classes are filled with exciting props and colorful equipment that is designed to excite the child’s young mind and body.
Tumble Bee Parent & Tot: Classes are for our youngest friends and their favorite adult(s). This class is full of laughs and learning, through both guided instruction as well as free time to explore. This quality time with your little one helps grow spatial awareness, gross motor and social skills. Our instructors guide you through several circuits within each class, teaching you how to safely guide your child through a variety of rolls, climbs, jumps and hangs. The little ones can do the same thing as their older friends; we just modify it to be age appropriate.
Tumble Bee 3-4 Year Olds: Look mom, I can do it by myself! This is a great first step towards independence for preschooler aged children. They will run, jump, swing, climb and bounce their way through fundamental skills and basic form using a variety of equipment. Our friends have 50 minutes full of fun in this theme based curriculum, mixing music and movement with each of the 5 core skill areas floor, bars, beam, trampoline/pit and vault. Instructors teach by breaking down skills into smaller parts, this allows students to kinesthetically experience each part. This format gives the child an opportunity to explore their boundaries, gain confidence in their decision making and learn new skills, all in a safe and age appropriate environment.
Tumble Bee 4-5 Year Olds: Children will receive more of a challenging curriculum. Instructors teach core skills utilizing progressions; this ensures each child is challenged as an individual. Children are exposed to more variety in each of the five events. As children gain confidence in the gym, we start to refine skills and work toward more technically correct and difficult skills. Progressions are an important part of the coaching for this level. It is especially important for children in this preschool age group to feel challenged, while still feeling and celebrating each success.
Kinder Bee Kindergarten 5 & 6 Year Olds: Kindergartners enjoy bigger challenges and more independence than our younger gymnasts, so we make sure to foster these great traits. This class focuses more on skill development and builds on the skills they have been learning such as handstands, cartwheels, bridges and more! They develop a broader understanding of gymnastic basics, and continue to develop their coordination, agility, strength, power, balance and self confidence. The Kindergarten program concludes with a Kindergarten Graduation in May and officially graduates from our Tumble Bee Program.
One Saturday a month we have an 50 minute session for kids 18 months- kindergarten from 12:10-1pm in June. Parents required to participate with all kids under 3. JUST $6. Open to the public. Release form required for non-members.
