KinderGym is an introduction to the world of gymnastics. These adult and child classes are for Preschool children and are focused on FUN!

This classes follow the Gymnastics Springfit proficiency award scheme, and will take children through basic movements and skills needed to lead on to the Gymanstics discipline in the future.

After a warm up and group stretch the class typically spends their time working on various apparatus and floor stations.


For ages 2+

We suggest that from the age of two children are usually ready for a more structured class rather than ‘soft play’ type experience, although obviously each individual child develops at a different rate. If you feel your pre-schooler is ready to listen to instructions from coaches, learn turn-taking, patience and other life skills as well as enjoy the physiological aspects of interacting with equipment, then KinderGym will likely be a suitable and very enjoyable class for them. We help progress basic proprioceptive skills, and want to ensure children are able to get enough out of the session so that you get value for money.

We always invite children to attend a trial fist, to ensure they enjoy it and the class is suitable, and it’s even possible to book a second trial if you’re not sure (sometimes it takes a couple of weeks for the children to get involved).

Children are encouraged to work towards the Springfit Proficiency Award Scheme in gymnastics, achieving badges and certificates for performing moves correctly.

Equipment such as bean bags and hoops are used in floor exercises to help children build their balance, co-ordination and control, while introducing gymnastic shapes and basic elements such as supported rolls. Class members can work on moves that provide a structured development programme, and allow them to attain awards for completing certain skills in gymnastics.

The group will also be introduced to various gymnastic apparatus, such as horse/vault, trampette and beam work, and work through varied exercises in a safe environment. Using assisted techniques to help overcome obstacles and learn how to best achieve results on equipment, each member can build on what they have learned each week to get their jumps bigger, hands placed down more firmly and confidently, and improve balance, strength and agility.

Working in a group environment helps build independence and social skills, and we use this first class to help children get used to the activities with the help of parents.
