Play Gym - Under 5's

Our PlayGym programme is set up for pre-schoolers to have fun, explore and be challenged. 

PlayGym is a fantastic program that enhances childrens’ coordination, confidence and rhythm through a variety of fun activities, utilizing specialized pre-school equipment. During our Playgym sessions the gym is transformed into a preschool playground with lots of challenging circuits, set-up to encourage children to explore the following fundamental movement patterns:

  • LANDINGS:Practising safe landing techniques,enhances childrens' confidence jumping from equipment
  • SPRING  Children have lots of opportunities to develop spring using our long tumble track trampoline, beatboards, mini trampolines and rebounders.
  • SWING Children develop confidence swinging, using small handles suspended under the bars, and big rope swings as well as using the uneven bars to learning correct shapes whilst practising mini tap swings.
  • LOCOMOTION Playgym is all about exploring movement patterns, we have lots of fun obstacle courses set up for children to spring over, crawl through and under and plenty of beams to challenge their balance. Our group activities at the start of each session provide lots of opportunities to run, jump, hop and dance 
  • COORDINATION SKILLS We always have an coordination station with small hand apparatus to practise bouncing, throwing, striking  and catching skills to develop visual tracking, hand-eye and foot-eye co-ordination. 

Playgym sessions are semi-structured, creating movement challenges for participants to explore. Playgym is based on the belief that 'movement and learning together are fun'and that play should provide for spontaneous free activity. Parents are involved throughout the session, supervising their own child on the gym floor, which is a great opportunity to play, engage and have lots of FUN exploring gymnastics with your child.
