The Best Sport for Little Kids
Gymnastics classes are a wonderful way for toddlers to be active! At Eureka, we run classes for girls and boys age 2 and up.
Gym Classes for Toddlers
Little kids involved in gymnastics classes develop their gross motor skills, confidence and social skills faster – all of which help them as they start school. In fact, gymnastics is one of the only sports toddlers can start as soon as they can walk! Children can’t do football or netball as a toddler. However, in a gymnastics class, your toddler can learn how to jump and land safely, to walk along a balance beam just 10 cm wide, and forward roll the right way.
Gymnastics Classes for 2-5 Year Olds
Under 5s classes at Eureka introduce your 2-5-year-old son or daughter to the world of gymnastics! We teach the essential gymnastics skills and shapes in these classes, through fun circuits and games.
These skills build a foundation that is a great launchpad into our Gymstar, Women’s Artistic, or Men’s Artistic programs – or any other sport! Additionally, children learn important social skills, how to listen to a teacher, and how to wait their turn.
Our regular Under 5s classes are for kids between 3 and 5 years of age. Along with teaching gymnastics, these classes help teach little kids independence. So, parents do not assist their children in these classes. However, we require at least one parent to stay for the duration of the class. We also may ask parents to assist their child if their child is too disruptive.
This class is specifically for boys and girls age 2 or 3. Parents can assist their children during this class, which also makes it ideal for kids who have a little trouble getting started in something new. Children in this class will only use the floor and trampoline. To join this class, children must be walking.
Intro to Gymstar
Gymnasts in this class follow the lesson plans for Gymstar 1-2 classes, but it’s the same length as our other Under 5s classes (45 minutes). This class is only for children age 4 or 5.
