Children ages 3-5 participate in a variety of motor development activities, including the gymnastics apparatus and trampoline. The activities focus on strengthening locomotor skills and improving balance, flexibility and body control. Social concepts such as taking turns, following directions and working within a group are encouraged. Activities are set to music and theme weeks such as Circus Week and Beach Week are part of the overall design of the Teddy Tumble Bear program. Teddy Tumble Bear is a great way to introduce your young child to gymnastics/tumbling & trampoline.
