Our Swim and Gym Day Program was carefully designed to provide children with an active day of learning, fun and games! A variety of games, activities and challenges will keep the children active, engaged and excited throughout the entire day.
Our swim lessons focus on teaching the basics of breath control, buoyancy, balance, movement and safety.
Our gym lessons focus on teaching strength, flexibility, coordination and creative movements.
Our superb staff is energetic, caring and committed to creating a wonderful experience for every child. In addition, our swim staff are American Red Cross Lifeguard certified and all gym activity will be supervised by USA Gymnastics Safety certified staff.
- MONKEYS: Spend the day exclusively flipping and swinging around the gym.
- PENGUINS: Spend the day both at the gym and in the pool at Little Flippers Swim School. Child must be at least 4 years old to enroll in the Penguins group.
- Each day of our Swim & Gym Day Program looks a little bit different, but will revolve around our 4 quarters of core learning. Those 4 quarters include a Gymnastics Lesson and if you choose the Penguins option, a Swim Lesson. These lessons are structured to teach fundamental skills and customized to each child’s age and ability level. The next quarter is Open Exploration and Free Learning in our gymnastics facility. Children will enjoy time jumping, flipping & swinging on their favorite equipment in the gym, while guided by our staff. The next component of core learning is our daily craft. Our students will take a break from physical activity to stimulate their mind and motor skills. Lastly, each day we will have a special guest or themed activity to enjoy such as obstacle courses, petting zoos, yoga classes, agility games and more! Please note; all children enrolled must be fully potty trained.
