Gymnastic Academy of Rockford would like to invite you to a complimentary Bitty Stars class on either March 6, 2013 at 10:00 am or Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 6:00 pm. Bitty Stars is for children ages 3 month to walking and is led by GAR Preschool Director Sarah Jakymiw. Sarah is a parent-infant specialist and hold a B. S. in child and family development.
Bitty Stars is for our littlest stars and their parent or caregiver. Our new infant program promotes development of emerging motor skills, provides positive social experiences, and enhances attachment building between baby and caregiver. The program is based off of the social learning theory of child development, which suggests that children learn through interacting with others. Classes also take a Piagetian approach to development, understanding that children learn through play and interacting with their environment.
You will be given the opportunity to register for entire 6 week course at the conclusion of your complimentary class. Classes will be held for the next 6 weeks at the same day and time (Wednesday, March 13 - April 17 at 10:00 am or Thursday, March 14 - April 18 at 6:00 pm). Cost for the 6 week course is $49.00. At this time, Bitty Stars is only available at the Gymnastic Academy of Rockford location.
