While still a parent/ caregiver and child class, PlayGym Plus provides many opportunities for your child to be more independent and learn from the coach.
This class is aimed at children who are ready for a longer class and coach directed learning. It is advisable to do at least 2 terms of PlayGym prior to starting PlayGym Plus to ensure your child is confident in the gym environment and understands the language used by the coach.
The class further develops fundamental movement by teaching a wide range of gymnastics and other skills across all apparatus. The class helps children develop confidence in their ability to learn in a class environment and helps them transition to after school classes.
