Gymnastics for Under 5's


Topple, tumble and have lots of fun at YMCA kids gymnastics

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 introduce children to gymnastics in a fun and exciting way. With a focus on a different piece of equipment /apparatus each lesson, children will build up their fundamental movement skills by balancing across beams, swinging on bars, jumping off boxes and rolling down wedges. To help encourage your child’s imagination and social skills, each week we run a different theme with songs and group warm-ups. Classes have a variety of free time and structure in which children can explore the equipment supported by their caregiver.

Y-Mini Gym 1 & 2yr olds focus on developing listening and learning skills and teaching coordination and gross motor skills.

Y-Mini Gym 3 & 4yr olds focus on developing confidence and self awareness, and teaching body positions and basic gymnastics skills in a low pressure and fun environment.
