Overview – How it Works
an amazing tool for preschools and parents to utilize to get their kids interested in health and exercise. Using themes like the alphabet, shapes, colors, sports, and more, BEEBUS reinforces lessons that are being taught in the classroom, while also implementing fun gymnastics and fitness exercises AND teaching about the importance of good nutrition.
BeeBus is a mobile, air-conditioned gym on wheels that visits your child’s pre-school once per week for 30 -minute sessions. Don’t worry parents! The bus is parked the entire time we have students aboard. Besides teaching FUN gymnastics lessons, we provide other stimulating exercises that prepare kids for sports and physical education classes as well as safety skills that will help prevent injuries like proper landing techniques.
After each lesson, our students will be sent home with a “daily report” of what activity and foods we discussed in class that day. There is room for comments so our coaches can give you updates on how your little one is doing each week!
What BEEBUS ?
It is an envisions for each of their students is a time with us in which they can learn more about socializing, taking turns and sportsmanship – by encouraging our friends when they do well on a skill, as well as increased spatial awareness, improved motor skills, and an overall sense of pride in themselves as they develop and improve on each new skill.
Our class sizes range from 8 to 14 students with TWO coaches on board, making sure our students keep those minds and bodies SUPER busy! Rarely do our students waist time in line because we always have someone there to work with them! Quality is very important to BEEBUS as we want to make sure that our kids are getting the most out of their time and our parents are getting the most for their hard-earned dollars! Be believe that busy bodies and happy minds lead to healthy bodies, which is what we are ALL about!
We at BEEBUS thank you for taking the time to consider our program as part of your child’s overall learning experience with their preschool center.
Preschool Basic Activities
Using equipment like a zip line, ball pit, tumbling mats, cones, monkey bars, gymnastics rings, balance beam, Bosu ball, bean bags and more, and our very own bodies – your child will have a blast exercising! While using equipment that increases balance, strength and coordination we foster spatial awareness and prepare our students for sports and physical education classes at the elementary school level.
By placing your child in an environment that encourages the development of gymnastics and sports skills, you are providing them with other tools that they are not even aware of. The possibilities are endless! Here are just a few of the documented benefits of gymnastics:
- Reduces the risk of obesity and obesity related diseases
- Builds strong bones and muscles
- Increases self esteem
- Improved sleep patterns
- Learn social skills such as team work, taking turns, and sportsmanship
- Direction following skills
- Respect for self and for other
- Gross and fine motor skills
While we are always introducing new skills, it is also very important to repeat and practice many skills as well. Typically, we will be working with our students in a circuit of skills. Some of them will be repeat skills, and some will be completely novel to them! Using a circuit allows us to keep the students moving and exercising with little downtime (waiting time).
During their time on the BEEBUS, our students learn gymnastics skills such as cartwheels, head stands, hand stands, pikes, straddles, jumps, forward rolls and backward rolls just to name a few. Our students also learn important safety skills used for landing. Although we would love our students to grow up to by Olympians, we truly are focused on teaching the basic foundations of gymnastics as well as other genres of sports as well as what it means to make “healthy choices for our minds and bodies”.
We at BeeBus believe that exercise is more than just getting a little sweaty! We want our students to understand the reason why exercise is so important. While they may not fully understand right now, that little seed of knowledge will grow! Later, when it is time to make their own decisions, we hope that they will have the tools they need to make the right decisions!
