Early Learning Programs
EARLY LEARNING STRIDER PROGRAM & MIGHTY TYKES TWO-WHEEL PROGRAM
Nitehawk is dedicated to creating quality outdoor learning environments for young adventure seekers and nature enthusiasts. This spring, Nitehawk is proud to invite early learners to challenge their ideas on how and when to ride a bike, by participating in the Early Learning Bike Programs.
Offering young children the opportunity to develop basic motor-skills, spacial awareness, and balance in a safe and exciting, intrinsic environment, the Early Learning Programs lead participants through a series of age appropriate obstacle courses and activities to build their confidence on a bike.
WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?
There will be two Early Learning Programs plus an unstructured drop in
- Ages 18 to 24 months are welcome to drop in at 9:30-10:00 with their parents for an unstructured play time where Nitehawk Strider bikes can be rented and tried out. A great opportunity to have your little try a strider bike and meet other children their age. No cost for the drop in play time!
- Toddlers ages 2 to 3 years old who are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children need zero bicycle/tricycle experience to participate in this program as Strider bikes are developed to replace tricycles and training wheels.
- Young riders ages 4 to 5 years old who are newly on two wheels or ready to start riding two wheels. This program is no training wheels! We will start with no pedals to work on balance and as kids progress add pedals back on to start riding their two wheels.
