Preschool Open Gym at Gleason’s Gymnastic School

Attention all parents of preschoolers who are, due to the recent bone-chilling temps, using your couches as trampolines: I’ve got a MUCH better spot in mind for them to let out that pent-up energy. A preschool open gym with REAL trampolines those little monkeys are actually encouraged to bounce on. Not to mention the bars, ropes and flying trapeze to swing from. And, perhaps best of all, the sea of foam blocks your tireless tyke can hurtle him or herself into until they are all but begging to take a nap. (Oh, that really got your attention, there, didn’t it?)

This place, this godsend in the winter months, is called Gleason’s Gymnastic School and they host a wonderful Preschool Open Gym program twice a week at their Eagan location. As I am now down to one preschooler at home, we aren’t as faithful to the gym as when I had three kids under five years bouncing off my walls (plus, at $10 per family, I got some major bang for my buck back then!) but we’ll still head over a few times a year when the couch needs a break.

More details: Most of the Open Gym is unstructured play time for kids to bounce, navigate obstacle courses, and explore much of the gymnastic school equipment. A group “circle time” is held each session for simple stretches and games. Professional staff are on hand to assist and play with the kids, but parents are required to supervise their children while in the gym, and a waiver must be filled out once per school year before the kids are allowed to participate. You can download the waiver at http://www.gleasons.com/.
