LITTLE ROAMERS & ME

Preschool Classes

9 Months - 3 Years

Little Roamers & Me classes at ROAMFurther Athletics in Mt. Kisco, NY offer a unique take on traditional Mommy & Me Classes. Little Roamer’s & Me classes focus on coach-supervised exploration and development of spatial awarenessinitial motor skills, and movement milestones for toddlers ages 9 months to 3 years.

ROAM'S TAKE

 In ROAM’s take on the traditional ‘open-play’ structure of mommy and me classes, your little ones navigate obstacle-based stations designed with a Parkour focused perspective, attended by their caregiver and the supervising instructor.

CURIOSITY

Our Little Roamer & Me classes focus on refining and reinforcing children’s natural curiosity for movement and exploration through the foundations of Parkour—a discipline all about learning how to move in more dynamic and confident ways.

KINESTHESIA & PROPRIOCEPTION

Kinesthesia is our sense of self-motion, proprioception our sense of self relative to space. Jumping, climbing, balancing—the root movements of Parkour—enhance these senses and the motor skills associated with them.

GUIDANCE

Little Roamer & Me classes are a collective effort between coach, student, and caregiver.

In ROAM’s take on the traditional ‘free-play‘ structure, students move through pre-designed areas with their caregiver, while the class coach offers guidance and advice about what skills and motor milestones can be developed & reinforced at each area.

The instructor’s communication with parents/caregivers focuses on how the skills, setup, and challenges relate to their Little Roamer’s own movement development and physical awareness.

DEMONSTRATION & MODELING

ROAM instructors are also active Parkour Athletes–meaning they practice what they teach.

 Little Ones learn predominately through watching and mimicking the actions of others. Explanation of technique is at a minimum in our Little Roamer & Me classes. Instead coaches focus on modeling the movement most important to the ages they’re instructing.

Whether they’re working on a specific skill in a specific area of the gym, or moving from one area to another, coaches consider how the movement they demonstrate is perceived and internalized by each student.

MOVEMENT IN THE WORLD

The explorative nature of our Little Roamer & Me classes allows our students to move as they would outside.

We watch the decisions they make on how to move through the space, correcting movement, and encouraging the growth of certain milestones as they do.

This means the movement they learn here is the movement they’ll use outside.

COMMUNITY & CONNECTION

Community is at the heart of ROAM. For us that means developing and deepening relationships both with students and families, and between them.

Little Roamer & Me classes are an opportunity to bond with your littlest in a unique way. The interaction of instructor, student, and caregiver creates a setting of cooperative learning.

You’ll see their self-confidence with movement, spatialawareness, and risk assessment grow, and find your own confidence in their capabilities growing alongside.

What an incredible place with an incredible team. RoamFurther is a bright, welcoming space, that encourages the teaching and positive energy that is parkour and ninja. My wife and I brought our 2 year old for a class, and it was so cool watch them explore all the obstacles. 10/10 recommend!!Extra surprise with the Coffee Bar. Best in Mount Kisco by a mile. Best Cappuccino I’ve had in a long time.

We hosted my stepdaughters birthday party here and so can’t stress enough how amazing the experience was. I coordinated with Jonathan, who was amazing and communicated and organized the details wonderfully. The kids had so much fun and the Instructors Tom and Sam were so great with them, and engaged the group together during solo activities. Also I have to say this space is SPOTLESS. They had a coffee bar that’s available during the party if you want and it was honestly such a nice touch for the adults. Everyone was complimenting how good the coffee was. There’s also a little “bar top” section where the adults can watch the kids play. I definitely feel the cost is reflective of the amazing experience, worth every penny.

We love ROAM - the owners and coaches are so good with our 4 and 2 year old active sons. They are gentle but disciplined so I don't worry about injuries, and my kids look forward to going to their class every single week. It's truly a fantastic experience for parents and children and I highly recommend checking it out.

I've been coming here for adult parkour classes for about a year now. This place is fantastic on all counts. Everyone I've interacted with here has been warm and welcoming. Instructors are fantastic about adapting to what you are capable of and helping you improve. The space itself is expansive and well constructed with no shortage of spaces to train specific movements or create lines to run. The coffee is also lovely, I've had a few after morning classes.

This is my son’s favorite place! I’ve watched his confidence grow as he learns these wonderful skills. He has faced challenges and fears with the help of the amazing coaches here. Every single person that works at Roam is so friendly, genuine and really caring. Plus the coffee bar is truly the best in town!

As someone who grew up on Assassin’s Creed, I always wanted to learn parkour but I always felt weird starting parkour as an adult. Turns out the parkour community is amazing and welcoming.Joe and Zach are leaders in the parkour community, and they often have famous parkour athletes visit the gym, or get invited to parkour events in NYC, or will let a fellow athlete film a profesh video using their space. You’re getting fitness training, but you’re also joining a community here.Highly recommend the adult program for anyone in my situation; an adult whose always wanted to try parkour? This is your spot.Shoutout to my fellow female athletes!I’ve always felt welcomed here.Also, obligatory sentence about coffee ♥️☕️. Is good! (Thanks Nick!)
