WisdomGym Educational Adventure Preschool

Have you heard about WisdomGym?  It’s a full fledged preschool located right in Horizon Complex!  Kids (and parents too) love it because it is sooo much fun for the kids AND they test out higher in academics than average for kindergarten.  WG is endorsed by Dr. Steven VanNoord, an area sports doctor too.

I thought you might like to know a few key points of what is included in WG, so here they are:

  • certified teacher
  • reading
  • music
  • math concepts
  • Spanish
  • zoophonics
  • creative learning stations
  • gymnastics or similar activity every day
  • adventurous field trips – great for learning

By doing an activity as gymnastics only once per week (WG includes our full curriculum of gymnastics) children’s academic scores can go up by 10% in reading and math scores!  What a great way to give your child an advantage in life.  A headstart in kindergarten!

Enrollment is beginning now for WG for the fall of 2014.  Give our office a call to find out more and to take a tour.  We think you will be happy you did!

WisdomGym Educational Adventure Preschool

Some of you are probably wondering – “What is WisdomGym?”   Well, it’s a “regular” preschool – for ages 3 – 5 year olds –  doing math, reading, creative stations AND a “booster” program of gymnastics which is included!  Did you kow that just by doing an activity as gymnastics once per week, children’s math and reading scores can go up by 10%?  Amazing, right?  When the students that take WisdomGym and test for kindergarten, they test higher than average.  What a great benefit! 

Horizon is taking a few new enrollments for January, 2014 for WisdomGym.  If you are interested, give the office a call and we’ll be happy to fill you in (616-669-7722). 

Have a great day!

  • races
  • open gym

After Thursday, November 21 it will be $2.00 additional.  That helps us to plan for staff and you can get your plans all set – like maybe Christmas shopping (w/o the kids), or dinner and a movie or just relaxing at home.

If your children bring friends (that would be great!) make sure their parents fill out a release.  These are also online for your convenience.

Hope to see you soon.  Ask us for our list of other events coming up too!

Proof POSITIVE

You’ve probably heard the phrase “the proof is in the pudding” right?  In the title of this article:  Proof positive, there are a few things at play here. 

The first is how important positive reinforcement is.  That is Horizon’s first and formost most important aspect.  After all, if you believe in yourself, you can go anywhere!

The second is understanding positive values.  You’re probably wondering what that means, right?  To start with your outcome that you receive (and deserve)vat Horizon far outweighs the cost.  Did you know that we have created graphs just to show you how your children learn?  The graphs go over fitness, flexibility and strengh with children  just  beginning our program and students that have been at Horizon for 8 0r 9 months.  Just ask at the front desk to see a copy!  Also, we have references from doctors and physical therapists as well as testimonials to show you.  Just ask!

We feel joining Horizon’s program is a great investment and hope you will agree.  Consider the alternative:  investing in a different gym (program) and not receiving the results that you are looking for.  We would like to be your trusted adviser for your children’s well-being and take this responsibility seriously.  We think you will appreciate the faster turnarounds, customization and fun that go along with the positive atmosphere at Horizon!

Hope you see you soon!  Give us a call at 616-669-7722 if you have any questions at all.  We’ll be happy to talk with you!

Born To Flip testing – did you know?

The “Born To Flip” program at Horizon is testing level 1 – 2 (school age gymnastics program) now.  I thought you might like to know how the “Born To Flip” program works, so here it is :).

The Born To Flip program tests the beginners (level 1 -2)   approximately every 9 weeks.  If students begin at level 1, then in 9 weeks they hopefully will go to level 2.  The Born To Flip booklet that each member receives shows what skills are being taught.  75% of accomplished skills allows the students to be promoted to the next level.  There are even “1/2” levels to make sure each student moves forward!  The goal is to have all students feel good about themselves (Horizon’s self esteem goal). Each  different level ( 1 – 10) has a different color Born To Flip bracelet that states Born To Flip on it.  The schedule of length of time between evaluations is in the back of the Born To Flip booklet for your convenience.

The idea is to reward the students and encourage them to continue learning.  It is so much fun.

If you have any questions at all about this program, please give the Horizon office a call at 616-669-7722 and we’ll be happy to talk with you.
