This 45-minute class allows 3 year-olds to even further enhance the skills that they learned in the Parent-Child class on an individual level.

In addition to improved body awareness, strength and flexibility, students will develop important listening and communication skills by learning and understanding the start-to-end routine for class.

This class is the first step in athletic independence for children at NGC and prepares them for advancing to the final step of our preschool program.
