About Us

Fort Gymnastics is an affiliate business of Fort Montessori Academy. Fort Montessori was opened in June 2010. Fort Gymnastics along with Fort Montessori is owned by Uma and Arun. We have been around children for over 10 years.

Being child development experts, we recognize that all children are made to move, and with proper instruction, they can all learn to move well. This leads not only to physical success on the playground and playing field, but increased self-worth and success in the classroom.

Fort Gymnastics Moto

Believe and Inspire”

We believe every child has the potential to learn and master any skill provided the skill is taught properly and the child has a passion to learn. The job of the instructor is to Inspire – which is done through encouragement and motivation.

Mission

We strongly believe that Gymnastics is a life skill focused on fitness. Our mission is to help each child participating in our program to reach their best possible fitness levels. This is possible because we have a created a child friendly, fun, interesting and lively gymnastics program.

Why Fort Gymnastics?

We believe in “Gymnastics for all”. We want all children to learn to move with grace and confidence. More than gymnastics we like to call it as a “Children’s Fitness Program”. We feel a child friendly and non-competitive environment would allow children to learn, explore and discover themselves in the process of learning gymnastics and improving the fitness.

We are not in the process of making Olympic Gymnasts rather we want everybody to learn and enjoy gymnastics and children’s fitness for what it is.

To achieve our objective, the following is what we have done

  1. We created a jungle themed kid friendly gymnastics arena.

  2. We have a great curriculum – that allows toddlers to explore the gym, while the preschoolers get introduced to all the basic skills of gymnastics and the school age children work on all the core gymnastics skills.

  3. We have been in the early childhood business for over 10 years as an affiliate business of Fort Montessori – thus we understand the unique needs of each child and understand that what works for one child does not work for the other. Thus, our curriculum allows us to adapt based on a child’s needs.

  4. Our Instructors undergo rigorous training before they can interact with children. The training program for our instructors is one on one with our senior instructor who goes through our entire curriculum and then allows the instructors to teach.

  5. When hiring staff – we believe in choosing the “personality” – we can always train the skill. Hence, we get friendly instructors with a great personality who have the knack of working with children.

  6. We have great friendly front desk and management who want to ensure that we give our 100 percent to this program and ensure our customers get their money’s worth.

Vision

Fort Gymnastics was created in unison with Fort Aquatics & Fort Montessori to offer an a la carte of services to parents from Gym Lessons, Day Care, After School Care, Pick up from local schools, Summer Camp, Winter Camp, and Swim Lessons from which parents can choose from. The parents should get the same quality of service across all three businesses and they must not feel the difference.

Our Philosophy in Teaching Gymnastics and Swimming is

“Believe and Inspire”

We believe every child has the potential to learn and master any skill provided the skill is taught properly and the child has a passion to learn. The job of the instructor is to Inspire – which is done through encouragement and motivation.

Our Staff

Fort Gymnastics coaches and staff are interviewed through two processes and undergo an extensive background check. We employ Coaches who are outgoing, friendly and know how to work, yet have fun with children of all ages. We strive to have open and informative relationship with our Fort families. Our Coaches will be trained internally with our specially designed curriculum and techniques. Each staff member will shadow as an assistant coach before running their own class. Our Coaches will teach children the correct technique to walk, run, balance, roll and jump. These techniques will in turn build a child’s self-confidence, flexibility, strength and coordination. Having a background and passion for working with children of all ages, our coaches are fully aware of a child’s capabilities and know when to push child to explore more or when to hold back.

Benefits of being integrated with Fort Aquatics and Fort Montessori?

Fort Montessori has been around for 10 years and it has been our core business. Fort Gymnastics was created in unison with Fort Aquatics & Fort Montessori to offer an a la carte of services to parents from Swim Lessons, Day Care, After School Care, Pick up from local schools, Summer Camp, Winter Camp, and Gym Lessons from which parents can choose from. The parents should get the same quality of service across all three businesses and they must not feel the difference. This integrated approach allows us to pick up children from Fort Montessori during the weekdays mornings and offer them gymnastics and swim lessons. Similarly, we pick up children from close by elementary school and offer them After School Care and swim and gym Lessons in the evening.

If a child is part of Fort Montessori Program or After School Program, we can then take your children to swim and gym classes, change clothes if necessary and bring them back safely to Fort Montessori after the classes. We want to offer a hassle-free experience for the parents where they don’t have to worry about taking children to swim and gym lessons.
