JUMP INTO THE JUNGLE

Pre-School gymnastics classes have so many incredible benefits for your child’s development, strength, flexibility, coordination, cognitive function, social development, building their confidence and most importantly making new friends and having fun.

Our programme is designed to keep the gymnasts stimulated and challenged throughout the year with some great events along the way. Body movements are instilled through repetition. Some of these movements include tuck, straddle, pike and stretch. The learning of gymnastics terminology is also an important element at this time.

Highlights during the year include Summer competition in June and the Christmas Display in December.
