Preschool Gymnastics Develops Cognitive Skills – Learning and completing a gymnastic routine requires the use of the mind as well as the body. The left brain and right brain have to work in concert, so your toddler’s body awareness and spatial awareness will improve. This really helps them become aware of the world around them and adapt better to it.
Increased Coordination – Your toddler’s coordination will greatly improve. They will learn alignment skills that include standing, walking and jumping which will improve their coordination. This will make your child appear less clumsy and they will learn alignment skills that include standing, walking and jumping through a variety of fun exercises. Your child will be more agile for other future sports.
Development of Strong and Healthy Bones – Gymnastics is a weight-bearing activity which can develop strong and healthy bones. As we age, we experience a loss of bone density over the years. By building strong and healthy bones earlier, it helps to prevent broken bones as your child grows older and becomes more active.
Improved Flexibility – Gymnastics is all about flexibility. When you increase your flexibility, you decrease your chances of injury. Being superflexible as a child will often carry forward with them later into life. This can help support proper body posture as they age, which will deter back and spine problems as they get older.
A great bonus when on the playground and playing sports! It’s Fun – Your toddler will really enjoy being part of a gymnastics class. They will improve their social skills by interacting with their class and coaches. Taking instruction and waiting in line are important learing skills too. And they will get some great exercise at the same time! Finding activities that are fun, hold our toddler’s attention and are healthy is a difficult task! Fortunately, a good gymnastic program can provide all this and more.
