X-Cel's Parent/Infant Gymnastics Program!
Bouncing Bugs begins with circle time and our "hello song" which indicates to the child that class is ready to begin. A warm-up follows which includes stretching and aerobic activity set to music that is geared towards the child's limited attention span at that age. Warm-up is gradually increased as the class progresses throughout the year. The instructor will explain a number of stations in a "circuit" which introduces various gymnastic skills to the child. It also enables the parent to work with their child on loco motor skills, strength building, eye-hand coordination as well as social skills, learning to take turns and follow directions. The teacher will instruct the parents as to proper techniques of each skill and how to correctly assist your child. This class also ends with our "goodbye song" to indicate class is over. These songs help the children understand the concept of beginning and ending with positive feelings.
