Posted on Jul 9, 2018 in Blog

If you or your kiddo are wanting to try something new this summer or you are looking for a new, creative way to get outside, parkour classes might be the answer.

A good gymnastics program can be created to assist in all these areas of development. Research has found that children who do not spend time crawling can typically have more difficulty with reading and writing later.
