Gymnastics for toddlers - 4 years ...

Pre-School Gymnastics

During the sessions, children are transported into the World of FUNdamentals in which the coaches will lead them in a range of physical and musical activities that ensure their interest and excitement. At the end of each term, children receive badges, certificates and medals to recognise their efforts and encourage them to progress further as well as to evidence participation and learning.

We want children to have fun while they learn in a safe and secure environment.

They should wear comfortable clothing that allows them to move around easily. Shorts and t-shirts are great – just ensure that clothes are not too baggy to become a danger or too tight to be restrictive. Long hair should be tied back and socks and shoes removed. Jewellery or other items that might cause scratching or become caught in materials should be removed.

We also ask that parents / carers also wear comfortable clothing that is appropriate for participation in the sessions.Wedding rings are acceptable, although care needs to be taken with rings with raised adornments, please can other jewellery be removed prior to the session commencing.

These requirements are really important so that your child can have fun in safety!
