CLASSES

Our pre-school classes are all 45 minutes in length and run by qualified British Gymnastics Pre-School Gymnastics coaches and trainee coaches / volunteers.   All of our coaches over the age of 16 have current enhanced DBS clearance and complete Safeguarding and Protecting children training.

UNDER 3s CARER / CHILD
The pre-school gymnastics classes for under 3s with parent/carer are not structured so the children are free to choose which activities they do. The equipment is set up for jumping, balancing, swinging, rolling, running, throwing and catching.

Children work at their own pace with you and staff are on hand to advise how to use the equipment with your child. During the last 5 minutes of each session we have circle time where the children participate in a group activity with hand equipment before getting a sticker for joining in. We follow the TigerTots Gymnastics Award scheme for under 3s and one badge is tested per term.

3-5 YEARS STRUCTURED CLASS
These classes are themed each week to offer variety and stimulate the children’s physical and social development.  Activities included are warm up and hand apparatus section for gentle stretching. Gymnastics skills are learned at fun stations with a coach supported skill, independent movement activity and/or hand apparatus co-ordination activity. We end with a cool down and gymnasts are rewarded with stickers for good behaviour and achievement.

We follow both the British Gymnastics Pre-School Proficiency Award Scheme for 3 to 5 year olds and the TigerTots Gymnastics Award scheme for 3 to 5 year olds and one badge is passed per term
