Babes & Buds

Babes & Buds is a structured, introductory gymnastics class for children ages 2 through 3 years. In this class the students, accompanied by an adult, get to explore the gym and learn how to navigate their toddler bodies. This movement education class teaches skills in a fun and safe space that will prepare your adventure-seeking tot for any playground in the city.

Class Overview

The first 10 minutes of class is the child’s time to explore the gym, come up with their own ideas, and interact with their peers. This time is for the adults to not only assist the children in their efforts, but also take a step back and observe what ideas the kiddos come up with.

After exploration time the class comes together for circle time. Circle time includes a 10-minute, age-appropriate routine warm-up and stretch. The following 15 minutes consist of structured movement education through obstacle courses &/or stations. In these courses & stations the children are introduced to age-appropriate gymnastics skills in a fun and safe way. The adults are instructed in suitable spotting techniques to safely assist the children through these new skills.

The last 10 minutes of class include a structured ending activity, a good-bye song, and a “celebration station” to acknowledge the children’s hard work.

Covid-19 class policies: Only 1 adult per family may enter the facility. All guests will be temperature checked. Those with temperatures of 100.4° or higher will not be permitted to stay. All participants must wash hands before and after class. All participants, adult and child will be asked to wear a face mask for the duration of their visit.

Long hair should be pulled back in a ponytail. All jewelry should be taken off before class. You may bring a water bottle and snack. All food and drinks must remain in the viewing area.

Trial Classes

Want to check us out before signing up for a session? We offer trial classes for $15 per child, the cost of which will be applied to the session fee should you decide to join. All trial classes must be scheduled in advance to ensure there is an available spot for you. Enroll your child in the class of your choice and mention, “Trial Class” as well as the date that you plan to come, in the comments section.

Siblings

There is a sibling discount and multiple-class discount. The first child/class fee is full price. A 30% discount is applied to the second child/class fee. A 50% discount is applied to the fee for those with three or more children.

Due to Covid-19, our observation area is limited to only one adult per family. At this time, non-participating siblings who are at crawling age and older will not be permitted to stay to observe class. If you will have another child with you, please plan to drop off your participating child and return at the end of class. If you are a parent in a Babes & Buds class with an infant sibling, you may either wear this child in a body carrier or secure the child safely on the side of the gym.

Make-Up Classes

We are unable to prorate for planned absences. If your child misses a class, they can make it up in another available class that is not sold out.

For absences due to illness, we may credit your account. A doctor’s note clearing your family to return will be required.

If Edgewater Playhouse must cancel class and cannot offer a date to make the class up, you will be given the choice of a credit to your account or a refund for the number of canceled classes.
