Kinder gym fun: 1yr+

The Kinder Gymfun program is a term long program that incorporates basic gymnastic skills with play. Our qualified gymnastic coaches who lead the sessions are aware that children differ in their developmental stages. Through this awareness, the coaches are able to cater to childrens' specific need throughout the 45 minute sessions. Each class, the children will be involved in new experiences when using different equipment and working with their parents to ensure a helping hand is always near. 

1-3 years

Encourages play and exploration where the child will be guided through the circuit with the help of coaches and parents. Parent participation in this class is compulsory. This is a great chance for the parents and children to bond through excercise. This class consists of:

  • Welcome and warm up
  • Hand apparatus activity and exercise
  • Mini and large circuit exploration
  • Bar work (using uneven and high bar)
  • Trampoline fun (using tumbling and Olympic size trampolines)
  • Parachute, bubbles, sparkles and stickers
  • Goodbye song

3-5 years

Involves more structured play, incorporating a weekly star skill, group time and more advanced skills and activities. Parent participation is compulsory. This class consists of:

  • Welcome and warm ups
  • Hand apparatus activity and exercise 
  • Mini and large circuit exploration
  • Weekly 'star skill' to be completed
  • Bar work (using uneven and high bars)
  • Trampoline fun (using tumbling and Olympic size trampolines)
  • Parachute, bubbles, sparkles and stickers
  • Goodbye song

4-5 years

Throughout the 4- 5 year old class, the children will begin to perfect gymnastic skills. Using smaller and more intricate circuits formats the basic gymnastic skills will become more apparent to the children. This class will also incorporate a star skill each week where the children receive a sticker to collect on completion to add to their sticker sheet certificate (which is awarded at the completion of the term). In preparation for school, group games are used to warm up and parents participation is no longer required. Parents are most welcome to watch the progression of their children throughout the term. This class consist of:

  • Welcome and warm up
  • Hand apparatus activity and exercise
  • Mini and large circuit exploration
  • Weekly 'star skill' to be completed
  • Bar work (using uneven and high bars)
  • Trampoline fun (using tumbling and Olympic size trampolines)
  • Parachute, bubbles, sparkles and stickers
  • Goodbye song
