Gymnastics For Young Children
Classes are 1 hour in length. Children are introduced to gymnastics in a fun, safe and friendly environment. Children learn basic rolls, jumps, and shapes, to improve their core conditioning while balance is improved by walking on low beams etc.
Apart from the children gaining physical benefits from this class there is also a huge social benefit .
For a lot of children it is their first experience where the must interact with children of similar age , learn to stay in line , learn to do what the coach instructs them to do etc so it is a great tool in getting them ready for a classroom situation.
Once a child is attending school they can no longer attend a toddler class and must progress to a Gymstart class.
