Carefully designed for babies learning to sit and crawl. Wee Peas provides our littlest students 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.
Objects 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 process.
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.

The Blending of Two Curriculum-Rich Preschool Gymnastics Programs!
We are very excited to now announce the blending of our Tumblebug Program with the Sweet Peas Program, an educational gymnastics program which shares our philosophy and culture of purposeful movement steeped in Fun and exploration. Gym Magic is the first gym in New Mexico to offer this stellar educational gymnastics program which has received rave reviews nationally and internationally.
Let us introduce you to Sweet Peas! Each year (One Pea, Two Peas and so on) has a dedicated curriculum filled with age appropriate activities that promote coordination, balance, core strength, bilateral awareness and flexibility - very similar to our Tumblebug Program.

One Peas are ready to move! With their newly developing upright mobility (and sometimes a mix of both eagerness and hesitation), 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.
Two year olds are amazing! Two Peas are gaining independence! The Two Peas program is designed to capitalize on the rapidly improving physical, cognitive and language development of two year olds. Two Peas provides gross motor skill development with whole body activities in developmentally appropriate circuits. Two Peas learn to run with developing synchronization; step, hold and balance on alternate feet; roll forward, sideways and backwards on a wedge with a spot...
