Carefully designed for babies learning to sit and crawl, Wee Peas provides our littlest scooters with active learning activities that focus on whole baby development. Wee Peas are given opportunities to move, reach, and grasp in a baby safe environment that is rich with color, sound and tactile experiences. Wee Peas learn to recognize their name in class and react to identifying themselves to the teacher. Wee Peas enjoy activities that promote visual tracking, core strength and balance needed for sitting
and standing. The Wee Pea curriculum includes activities that promote grip strength and hand coordination in grasping and releasing objects. Objectives include activities that promote crossing the midline and bilateral awareness needed for crawling and walking. Wee Peas work on spatial awareness and positional comfort through gentle, developmentally appropriate rolling and inversion exercises. Wee Peas also enjoy some of their first” “experiences in playing and learning with other babies and gain cornerstone lessons in social awareness through interacting with their Wee Pea friends! Wee Peas are in the golden first 12 months of life. There are amazing neural miracles taking place in this precious first year! Did you know… movements that involve crossing the midline encourage cognitive function? Cross lateral movements, for example, involve passing an object from the right hand to the left hand or using the right foot to step over the left foot. Cross lateral movements work both sides of the body in a balanced way and require coordinated movements of both eyes, both ears and both hands and/or feet. Cross lateral activities activate both hemispheres and all four lobes of the brain, heightening cognitive function and engaging learning processes.

 

Movement primes Wee Peas for learning. The Sweet Peas Educational Gymnastics Program is designed to provide fun and delightful cognitive and developmental opportunities in an active learning environment.

One Peas are ready to move! With their newly developing upright mobility (and sometimes a mix of both eagerness and hesitation), One Peas love to explore! One Peas are beginning to understand words and ideas. The active learning goals of One Peas promote neural development in the amazing one year old brain. The One Peas’ curriculum is designed to provide enriching activities in a safe and fun environment. One Peas learn self awareness and physical adaptation through developmentally appropriate gymnastics activities such as stepping, rolling, balancing, sliding and swinging. One Peas learn baby rhythm and sequencing through physical activities coordinated with music and prompts. One Peas learn to clap, step, count, stop and start, and repeat. Creatures of repetition, One Peas begin to recognize and anticipate routines in the One Pea lesson plans. They are beginning to remember what they have learned and they are excited to participate.

 

The One Pea curriculum is designed to enhance the direct connection between active movement and brain processing. One Peas’ brains are engaging as they walk in a circle and scoot across the beam. Their sensory systems are developing as they roll on the wedge mat, bounce on the spring board, swing on the rings, climb through tunnels and hang from the bars.

 

Gymnastics provides unparalleled opportunities to balance, hold, reach, grip and bounce. One Peas are learning and growing at an amazing pace as they transition from babyhood to toddlerhood. This is a magical year!
