Preschoolers tumbling class starts March 12

The Homewood-Flossmoor Park District is offering a new tumbling program for 3, 4 and 5-year-olds this spring.

Preschool Tumblebears will help young children develop overall fitness and motor skills through challenging activities on gymnastics equipment. Instructors will follow a weekly curriculum to ensure each child is learning at his or her own pace.

It has been shown that children who have participated in movement education activities have longer attention spans, increased communication skills, general problem solving skills and improved self-esteem, said Stephanie Simpson, H-F park district’s superintendent of recreation.

Tumblebears Gymnastics will meet from 3:55 to 4:30 p.m. Thursdays March 12 through April 30. Sessions are at the Irwin Community Center, 18120 Highland Ave., Homewood. The fee is $80 for residents and $100 for nonresidents.
