KindyGym for babies and toddlers at Ellerslie Recreation Centre managed by YMCA provides a wide range of activities designed to teach children the fundamental skills of gymnastics in an exciting environment.
These classes are focused on learning through play and exploration. Sessions are guided through bi-weekly imaginative themes such as "Farmyard", "I want to be..." and "Winter Wonderland" and also work around the 7 Fundamental Movement Patterns, to develop physical strength, enhance cognitive skills and encourage social interactions with others in the class.
MiniGym classes are best suited for those aged 1-2 years and focus on developing listening and learning skills and teaching coordination and gross motor skills.
KindyGym Classes are best suited for those aged 3-5 years and focus on developing confidence and self awareness, and teaching body positions and basic gymnastics skills in a low pressure and fun environment.
