We run pre-school classes for children from the age of 18 months to help develop co-ordination, fine and gross motor skills.
Up to the age of 3 years the classes are parent and child classes and help build the relationship between children, grown-ups and play. The 45 minute session consists of a warm up using different themes, hand apparatus, action songs and games. After the warm up you and your child will work on a circuit involving running, jumping, climbing, balancing and co-ordination. To end the session there will be a cool down involving a calm game or song and then everyone will say good bye.
Our coaches are aware that during this time the children will develop at different rates and the circuit will be adapted to the individual ability of each child. We may often ask you to do something different with your child as our coaches are there to guide you around the circuit and show you safe ways to assist your child in their development.
From the age of 3 years the children become Growing Grasshoppers, they attend our hour long independent classes where they work directly with our qualified pre-school coaches in developing their basic gymnastic skills to enable them to happily move on to our after school classes when they begin their school life.
