Me and My Buddy
This fun class is designed to focus on developing your child’s large motor skills and social skills. We will do this through age appropriate skills such as throwing and catching, simple tumbling and jumping, balancing, and simple aerial that encourage and foster imagination.

Me and My Buddy Guidelines:
For your Child:
Overview-This class has been designed to allow 2 years olds to experience a class like environment while increasing gross motor skills like coordination and strength that are needed for necessary development.
For you the Helper:
For many this is their first structured class setting, so many need to learn how to participate in the i.e. taking turns, waiting in line, staying with the group etc. for some the skills come easy but the social is the harder part.
The skills that are taught in class have been broken down to suit the developmentally level of 2 year olds. The skills are to develop your child’s motor skills through coordination, strength and flexibility exercises. Allowing them to solve physical problems i.e. forward roll, jumping backwards etc. will enhance their body awareness.
Have patience with your child’s progress. Each child grows and learns at their own pace. Please avoid ‘doing’ everything for your child, help is encouraged but allow them to try by themselves when it is safe to do so.
