An expanded parent waiting room with a pro-shop that carries all the latest in gymnastics and cheer apparel and accessories. We are the only gym in South Carolina that has a separate preschool facility. Upon entering our 5,000 square plus gym, our children are greeted by a huge sea treasure wall mural. We have plenty of preschool equipment and a wide variety of mats of different shapes and colors to spark a child's imagination. Our preschool curriculum meets many objectives such as; promoting listening skills, developing coordination, rhytm, and timing, stimulating the imagination, creating a positive self-image, and preparing for reading readiness, just to name a few.
Each week we introduce a theme to keep our treasures excited about coming to Foothills. Themes may include; Hooray for Handstands, Rhythmic Week, Rowdy Round-off Week, Paw Patrol and more. Each of these have a carefully thoughtout lesson plan that go along with the theme. We post each weeks lesson plan in the foyer and we also send out the lesson plan each Sunday afternoon. We introduce music that goes along with each theme as well. Each class at Foothills is taught with a low student-teacher ratio. This allows the student to receive the most attention that is needed and deserved.
At Foothills we strive to teach gymnastics in a safe and fun environment. We work on the basic fundamentals on the vault, bars, beam and floor building on a strong foundation, which is so important in gymnastics. We keep the whole child in mind by integrating pro-social skills, cognitive challenges, and proper skill progression. We do this by using developmentally appropriate and skill-appropriate classes. As the gymnast progresses with their skills they are moved to the next level. We do a written evaluation in December and are constantly evaluating each gymnast's progress in class. Your child will be placed in an age appropriate and skill appropriate class.
What a great combination!
