It is always great to start sport young, we take budding gymnasts from the wonderful age of 1. Some of our pre-schoolers have shown great potential and improved so quickly. It is also just a lot of fun and a great way to burn off some of that toddler energy. We begin the structured class with a fun warm up song and then explore trampoline, trampette, beam, bar, obstacle course and floor exercises. Parents can join in and get involved or sit back and watch expert coaches take control. Relaxed gymnastics session! They all receive a sticker or stamp at the end of the session. They are also rewarded with a certificate and badge in the autumn and summer terms.
Welcome to our fun-filled Play gym session, a child’s paradise! Come along with your babies and toddlers and experience the world of gymnastics. The Play gym program is devoted to basic movements. Balancing, running, swinging, bouncing, pulling, pushing, climbing and rolling! With a soft sprung floor and soft play equipment you never need to worry! The gym is fitted out with a Trampoline, Rope, Fast Track and Bouncy Castle. These sessions are open to all children 5 years & under and must be accompanied by an adult. Older children will not be able to join in, for safety reasons.
These are drop-in sessions and do not require booking in advance.
PLEASE NOTE Play Gym sessions are only for young children to play on equipment, under the supervision of their parents or guardians. Adults are not to utilise the equipment, as there is no Instructor supervision. Only one person on the Trampoline at one time, and no somersaults to avoid injury. See Terms & Conditions for further rules of play.
The Gymfants program caters for Pre-School children of 3 years – 4 years old. These sessions are for children with or without their parents. We have fully qualified coaches that will greet you with a smile, so don’t worry if your child is nervous on leaving you. Our coaches are very experienced and will turn your child’s frown upside down!
The class is structured to our Gymnastics Award Scheme and also Pre-School discipline. Your child will understand the basics of Gymnastics, whilst still enjoying our pre-school shapes,foam pits,trampoline,beam,and vault and all the fun that comes with it.
Please note: These classes need to be block booked in advance to secure your child’s place. Please visit our Bookings page or call 01451 263130 if you have any queries.
Following on from the Gymfants sessions, we have our Pre-Recreational Gym sessions for 3 – 4 year olds. These are a more structured session, and pre-schoolers must be independent and able to follow instructions from a coach. They must be happy to stay in a group whilst their parents leave the gymnasium.
In these sessions they will develop their skills further, on all apparatus. This class then makes an easy transition to our Recreational Gymnastics sessions, when they children are old enough.

Sessions: Monday 11:30-12:45pm, Tuesday 12:15-1:00pm, Thursday 10:45-11:30am, Friday 1:00 – 1:45pm & 3:45 – 4:30pm
