My Gym Children’s Fitness Centers in Cohasset and Norwell are now offering 2 ½ hour extended learning programs for children ages 3 ½ to 7 ½ years. My Gym is doing its part to keep our community safe by following strict COVID-19 safety protocols, and classes are being kept small with a maximum of 8 to 10 children with two teachers. These engaging classes are designed to enhance physical, social, and cognitive skills. 

Preschool Prep (Ages 3 ½ to 5.0 years)

My Gym understands the impact preschool or pre-kindergarten education has on children’s emotional, social, and cognitive development. In its commitment to educate the whole child, this program focuses on imparting to children the skills needed to excel in preschool and beyond. Kids love being silly and using their imagination at these ages and the Preschool Prep class focuses on making all types of learning fun. The classes include…

  • An active gym program including relays, gymnastic stations, manipulatives, group games, & more
  • Outside time (when the weather is agreeable) & snack
  • Academic time with age-appropriate lessons and challenges involving letters, numbers, days of the week, months, shapes, colors, etc
  • Arts & Crafts, plus imaginative exercises, and fine motor challenges

STEAM Learn & Play (Ages 5 to 7 ½ years)

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math – and this program marries the best of My Gym’s physical education curriculum with STEAM hands-on learning. Concentration, listening, and fine motor skills are quickly improving at these ages, as children are beginning to ask more questions about the world around them. This class is perfect for this age group, and includes…

  • An active gym program including relays, gymnastic stations, obstacle courses, sports skills, group games, & more
  • Outside time (when the weather is agreeable) & snack
  • STEAM learning – One or two hands-on group lessons involving a STEAM concept and independent STEAM challenges which change weekly

Both class programs have been expertly designed by My Gym Corporation’s Program Development Team, and are taught locally by My Gym’s experienced, caring, and enthusiastic teachers.
