Parent and Toddler Classes

We run Parent and Toddler Classes in the Newby Rd. Centre for children between the ages 1 to 4. These are unstructured classes with a few minutes of circle time at the end. After this the children can go upstairs to the cafe for a free biscuit.

The classes are currently on:

Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays 9.30-10.30 and Fridays 9:15-10:15am. 

Costs are £4 for each child.

If you are interested then just turn up, there is no need to prebook. You can register for this session. You don’t need to, but the advantage is that there is no paperwork to fill in when you arrive and getting in is a bit quicker.

 

We run classes through half term. To see the dates and times please check the Parent and Toddler open play page.

Why gymnastics?

Gymnastics is a safe, fun and challenging sport that offers movement opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Providing participation across nine different disciplines, gymnastics has something for everyone.

Here are our top reasons why you couldn’t find a better sport for your child:-

Fun – turning upside down and learning new skills and tricks is part of every child’s nature. Fitness – getting your child up and active is not only good for them it is encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle for life.

Friendship – children love to play with their friends and make new ones in safe and challenging environments

Fundamentals – participation in gymnastics teaches and enhances fundamental movement patterns learned early in life and essential for continued growth and development.

Co-ordination and Body Control – gymnastics teaches how to control the body for safe landings and develops co-ordination for other sports and life activities

Confidence and Self Esteem – learning new skills and getting stronger builds confidence and self esteem in children

Listening Skills – children are taught the importance of listening to coaches and other gymnasts, a skill that translates well to all facets of life

Set and achieve goals – helps children strive for accomplishments whether they be learning a new skill or making a competition team

Cognitive Learning – learning new skills helps develop cognitive abilities for translation to the home/classroom

Skills for other sports – it doesn’t matter if your child does not stick with the sport, the skills they learn and fitness they will gain will stay with them throughout life and their other sporting endeavours
