The Kindergym Program
Kindergym is a multi-movement based program designed specifically for pre-school aged children and their caregiver. The program promotes the development of the whole child – physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively, in a safe, structured, multi-sensory environment, indoors. Learning through play in a stimulating, non-competitive environment assists children to develop to their full potential in readiness for kindergarten, school and sports.
Each session is directed towards empowering your child with the skills and confidence to hang and swing, spin, balance, skip, climb, throw, crawl and jump. It helps to provide the foundations for a lifetime of positive attitudes towards physical activity. While having fun, children learn to move and move to learn.
Step into Gym (Kindergym Extension Program)
Step into Gym is a program designed for 4-6year olds who are not yet at school but want to take their gymnastic skills to the next level. Step into Gym does not require active parental participation but we do ask you stay to observe the session (from the allocated seating) and encourage your child during the session. Step into gym will teach your child the basic of gymnastics including bu not exclusively shapes (rocket, star, tuck), skills (swinging, landing, rolling), techniques (how to master a skill properly), gymnastic language and everyday skills such as taking turns and following instruction.
