PHYTNESS

PHYTNESS is a fun, non-competitive physical education program for children ages 3-10. The program begins with non-stop cardiovascular movements and loco motor skills while moving to age-appropriate music. Following a warm up, children are engaged in activities enhancing balance and agility. Proper technique for acrobatics is taught including rolls, stands and wheels. Eye-hand coordination is the ability to track movements from the hand to the brain. Developing eye-hand coordination fosters not only the ability to exercise and play sports, but also positively effects the ability reading and write. This portion of PHYTNESS incorporates scarves, beanbags and a variety textured and sizes of balls. Our 6-10 year olds participate in a segment of calisthenics. Good form and “personal bests” are the focus. Goals are set at the beginning of their class and instructors help the students reach their PB each week. Focus is placed on increased repetitions and integrity of measurement for; squat jumps, sit-ups, crunches, leg lifts and jumping jacks. Every PHYTNESS class ends with an obstacle coarse. Equipment is set up in a self- directed, non-instructional manner, allowing each student an opportunity to test his or her own agility, strength, balance and coordination. The course is set up to encourage participants to crawl, climb and roll using all the skills taught in their class.

TESTIMONIALS

Highly recommend – great preschool!

Mackie N.

My son absolutely LOVED his Totem time and misses the staff a lot now that he is in Kindergarten.

Becky G.

I highly recommend Totem Preschool. The teachers are fantastic and so is the program. There is a lot of focus on socio-emotional development.

Miss Bobbi is bundle of positive energy and clearly loves the kids. She’s very knowledgeable and is a great resource.

Heidi W.

“I couldn’t be happier with our 3 years at Totem. My son made the transition to Kindergarten seamlessly, though he definitely misses his old teachers and school! Miss Bobbi is as good as they come. My son is a busy body, and the programming was such that he could get out those 4-year-old wiggles while building the skills to excel at the next level. We look forward to sending our daughter to Totem next year, and joke regularly that we’d send them to Totem through High School if it were an option.”

Keenan S.

“My daughter has been attending this school for the 2016-2017 school year. It also includes free gymnastics and the tuition is beyond reasonable. Many families have children in the gymnastics next door and find this place to be a wonderful place to attend. Miss Bobbi is patient with my somewhat hyper child and I personally have had noting but great experiences here. Not sure why the crummy reviews from others but the complaints seem petty. And I know petty, I’m a school teacher myself, lol.

If you want a quality school with teachers with years of experience and a fun friendly preschool approach, totem preschool is the place :)”

Kathy R.

“We have our son at the school for the past year and it’s been fantastic. Miss Bobbi is incredible with her energy. It’s a great facility – having the kids run around in the gym each time is awesome. Thanks”

David B.

“Awesome and knowledgeable staff. Huge recommendation!”

Marina Žarić

“Both of my kids attend Totem and we are so happy. Great teachers and fun activities. I’m so glad we found Totem.”

Courtney Kroymann

“Our son loves Totem preschool and went 2 days a week the first year, then 3 days a week the 2nd. The teachers are all great and he has grown so much physically (strength and agility), socially and academically. He told me he didn’t want to go to kindergarten, He wants to stay at Totem forever! Recommend Totem to anyone looking for a great preschool!”

Katie Dujenski

“This school is a wonderful school. The teachers are amazing and really care about the kids. My son has been attending since he was 2 1/2 years old. Sadly this is his last year, but excited that in about a year his sister will definitely be attending this school. I highly recommend Totem Preschool to anyone!!”
