Early Learning Sport Academy
Where Early Learning and Sport Training meet!
Students of Early Learning Sport Academy begin with a two hour immersion into creative classroom learning, focusing on science & social studies, speech & language, phonetics and literacy, preparing them for Kindergarten and beyond. We follow a Reggio Emilia approach to early learning. This allows your child to explore their own imagination and question the world around them while learning
Early Learning Concepts.
Then, they will move into the gym where they will participate in strategy and problem-solving games, sport/fitness development, as well as GYMNASTICS! Their time in the gym will be spent developing Physical literacy*; learning fundamental movement skills from several popular sports, using gymnastics as a foundation. What better way to discover your child's potential and
prepare them for elementary and beyond!
This high energy, interactive program is one you won't want your child to miss.
