KinderGym Classes For Toddlers and Kids
1. Gym Bubs
Gym Bubs is a fun introduction to toddler gymnastics, suitable for kids from crawlers to 2.5 years old.
Delight as your child’s world opens to the power of movement as they enjoy gripping, swinging, bending and crawling. This parent/caregiver assisted class focuses on sensory awareness and play, introducing small challenges and routines. Little crawlers to toddlers aged to 2.5 years develop motor skills through simple circuits, learning basic rotational movements, shape-making, weight transferring, gripping, bending, bar hangs, jumps and crawls.
2. Gym Tots
This KinderGym class, designed for 2.5 year olds to 4 year olds, refines movements and further develops gross motor movement. Cognitive and social development comes into perspective.
Children overcome hurdles, build confidence and work towards independence. Kids can then focus on key movements, improving core strength and working with their centre of gravity.
Gym Tots learn to take turns, play with others, understand direction and start to follow instructions.
3. Gym Kids
Gym Kids is for children from 4 years old to pre-prep who are looking for more challenges.
Being a little older, our Gym Kids classes enjoy more independent exploration and discovery time with their coaches.
We help children to gain independence in preparation for school. Parents become less involved as children come under the instruction of our expert coaches.
