JUMPING JOEYS

3-4 years old (2 years before school)

This program caters for boys and girls from 3-4 years old who need a challenge. Perhaps they have tried a KinderGym program before and need a bit more structure! Children participate in a group warm-up and stretching, followed by the use a wide variety of equipment in large circuits (small ratios of a maximum of 7 students to 1 coach). Parents are required to be present in the gym, but do not usually participate unless especially required.

The class is designed to be fun for little ones, whilst teaching basic movement patterns that will benefit future sports and activities. This confidence-building class is the perfect stepping stone before Kindy Puppies (4 to 5 year olds).

KINDY PUPPIES

4-5 years old (the year before school) 

The Kinder Puppies program caters for boys and girls aged 4-5 years old in a challenging yet non-threatening environment. Groups are small (maximum 7 children per coach). The class aims to encourage children to discover their own abilities in a supportive and exciting environment. Being part of a group, children learn to interact socially as well as develop their athletic skills and physical strength. These classes are a stepping-stone from the Jumping Joeys to the Recreational Bronze program (school aged beginner gymnastics).

A wide variety of equipment is used in circuits to allow children to explore basic movements in running, jumping, landing, hanging, swinging, balancing, turning, rolling and supporting their weight on various body parts.

The curriculum has been devised to enable your child to progressively develop basic movement patterns, so that good body tension and spatial awareness is promoted, and within each lesson there is scope for extension and creative activity.
