What options are available for 2-5 year old children (boys and girls) in North Dallas/Northwest Dallas/Preston Hollow (inside the loop)? Things like dance, gymnastics, tball, soccer, etc.

I know this is a big area for private schools, but how does that affect the make-up of the kids in extracurricular activities there? (mostly private school, mostly public school, socioeconomic status, etc.)

Through my research, it seems that little league (tball, soccer) teams are run through the YMCA's there, is that true?

YMCA sports are great for little kids - Y-leagues become less and less competitive as the kids get older.

Emler Swim School is great for kids in that age group. They start with "Mommy and Me" classes and have the kids swimming across the pool by about age 3-4. It's at Preston & Forest.

There are gymnastics programs for toddler/preschool age at Little Gym (also at Preston & Forest) and ASI Gymnastics (Forest & Greenville).

Kindermusik is a good program for very young children and there are several location options in the North Dallas area.

Also, the Galleria Ice Skating center starts Tot Intro ice skating lessons at age 3, I think. We started at age 4, and my kids loved it and learned very quickly.

My girls does dance and I'm starting to see a lot of boys take up dance too (hip-hop). See if you're kids are interested. Power House is in your area.

Town North Family YMCA | YMCA Dallas Do check out the Y. It is little kid central! There are tons of activities for the kids and the outdoor pool is very popular with families in the summer. Yes, most sports for little ones are centered around the Y.
