Our classes run throughout the year:
These classes are designed for little minds looking to explore and develop their agility, balance and co-ordination in an environment suited to their needs. Classes are split into 2 age categories:
18 months - 3 years - These classes include a short structured warm up and stretch followed by free play around large and small apparatus where the little ones are able to develop fundamental movement skills with the assistance of their grown up and the coaches
3-5 years - Similar to the 18mths-3yrs class this class begins with a structured and fun warm-up and stretch usually involving music/games and different hand apparatus. The class encourages children to build fundamental movement skills that will help the gymnasts in a number of different sports as well as learning the basics of gymnastics.
Preschool classes run over 40 weeks of the year and cost £18.50 per month.
These classes are designed for school aged children who have little or no gymnastics experience.
