GymTots Adult & Child

Our Pre-school sessions for boys and girls age 2.5 to 4 years are structured, fun and safely run by qualified British Gymnastics Pre-School coaches with a parent/guardian in the gym with their child taking part in the lesson.

Lessons are planned carefully each week to offer variety and give stimulus to the child's physical and social development, whilst teaching a variation of safe progressions and still having fun!

We try to encourage all of our Pre-School children to learn early balance, co-ordination and basic gymnastic skills through a variety of age appropriate and fun activities, focusing on motor skills, spatial awareness, strength and agility. All of this is taught in our purpose built gym using specialist equipment.

All preschool children will work their British Gymnastics Fundamentals badges and also Preschool Agility Balance and Co-ordination awards.
