At this age, a child is developing a wide range of skills at an astonishing rate. During this period of growth, our Waddlers' levels of independent mobility will typically progress from aggressive crawling to running. Additional fine and gross motor skills developed during this stage include balancing on one foot, kicking a ball, building a block tower, riding a tricycle and walking up stairs. Our facility, equipment, toys and even the teachers' language are adjusted to be age-appropriate and challenging but always fun, inspiring and in an atmosphere of constant accomplishment. Our highly trained instructors shower the children with affection, as they guide our Waddlers in early social skills. This age group is the youngest to experience the full My Gym Warm-up.As this hour of new adventures unfolds, our Waddlers are engaged in interactive songs, choreographed dances, age-specific puppet shows, special rides and a variety of swings and other original activities. This stimulating parent participation program introduces balancing, tumbling, hanging and agility skills in a fun method, helping the children develop a love of physical activity and a sense of pride in their achievements.
