Preschool Classes

About Our Classes

Our G-Force Garden is a vibrant gym that is dedicated for our youngest gymnasts, babies through age 5. This separation from the main gym offers a safer and less hectic environment for our little ones and also allows us to provide ‘preschool-sized’ equipment for the smaller hands and feet. Classes are once a week and 50 minutes long and offer a low student to coach ratio. Girls wear a leotard or shorts and a T-shirt. Boys wear shorts or sweat pants and a T-shirt. For safety reasons (for both child and coach), we do not allow jewelry, hooded sweatshirts, jeans or street pants, belts, zippers, and baggy clothing. Long hair should be pulled back, however, avoid hard barrettes or hair decorations. This program is unique in that unlike other Preschool programs in Albuquerque, our focus is on teaching progressive and developmental gymnastics that provides a solid foundation as they grow. Our motivational and fun teaching methods incorporate music, repetition, rewards, and recognition and our preschool instructors are experienced in their ability to teach the very young athlete and exhibit patience as these athletes master new concepts. Along with gymnastics, essential preschool skills such as counting, color recognition, body awareness and fine and gross motor movement will also be reinforced. These foundational classes help your child grow physically, emotionally, and socially. It is well documented that gymnastics classes at a very young age help children develop a strong sense of confidence and self awareness as well as develop "reading readiness". With our specially designed classes, you will see your little one: *Improve gross motor skills by developing and strengthening muscles *Strengthen manipulative skills with specially designed equipment and apparatus *Develop speech and communication skills using songs and rhymes *Learn to listen follow directions and take turns *Develop a readiness for classroom learning and reading readiness *Learn to cooperate, share, and help one another *Become aware of his/her body position *Learn to fall correctly and to jump and land safely from modest heights *Learn safety procedures during group play *Develop a sense of independence, learning to evaluate his/her own performance with self-testing activities *Improve coordination, agility, and balance *Build confidence while successfully performing new skills and tasks *Be prepared for any and all future sports
