Welcome to "The Den"
At Jacksonville Academy of Gymnastics we are proud to offer a separate area designed specifically for our early childhood program. The Den has been created for your younger students ranging from 30 months to 6-years old. Our students will begin as Roaring Rollers and they will progress through The Den to become Jumping Jaguars. The curriculum for this program is structured around physical, cognitive, and emotional development of these specific age groups. Our equipment is age and size appropriate in order to provide a safe and engaging learning environment.
Our Roaring Rollers program is designed for children 2.5 to 3 years of age. The purpose of these classes is to introduce basic gymnastics and fitness-based activities, while also focusing on balance, coordination, and strength.
Our Tumble Cubs program is designed for our 4 year old students. This program focuses on introducing organized activity at different stations. Learning to listen, follow directions, and improving the very basic gymnastics skills are the goals of this program.
Jumping Jaguars is one of our transitional programs. We believe, at ages 5-6yrs, that children will quickly adjust to being in a busier, more stimulating environment. We have designed a transitional gym within the big gym, in order to keep the Jumping Jaguars separated from the older students. This allows our 5 and 6 year olds to be in a "big gym" setting to prepare them for school-age classes, while also keeping them safe with age and size appropriate equipment.
