Our Preschool gymnastic classes give parents and caregivers the opportunity to participate with their children in active play whilst developing all areas of their body and mind..

We run classes from BabyGym through to PlayGym Plus with a range of options depending on where your child is at in terms of their physical and emotional developemt.  Classes are appropriate to age levels and help children progress their fine and gross motor skills across all fundamental movement patterns.  These include landings, balance, spring, locomotion, rotation, swing and manipulative skills.

 

New in 2022!

PlayGym Plus Transition to Independence
This class is available on Saturday mornings and is designed for children who are 4 years old and are nearly ready to transition into after school classes. The focus is on children’s independence therefore no parent participation in this class.

This class is most suitable for children that have been coming to PlayGym for some time and are confident to be without their parent.

PlayGym builds on the basics of fundamental movement learnt in BabyGym and begins introducing children to a wide range of gymnastics and sports skills.

The class is a parent/caregiver and child class where you help your child achieve new skills and progress further with fundamental movements patterning.

 

Following a warm-up where we introduce the key skill of the day, the coach will lead you through a series of play circuits.

 

Coaches will also provide ways for you to help your child learn their body parts, numbers, colours and shapes as well as directions and developing spatial awareness.

1 hour class

While still a parent/ caregiver and child class (except Saturday transition to independence 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.
