WELCOME TO GYM TOTS GYMNASTICS
At Gym Tots, your child will enjoy new challenges, develop new skills, and most importantly have heaps of fun. Through fun structured activity your child will gain a new level of concentration and confidence.
Children’s attitudes towards sport in general are usually developed by the age of 5 years, so it is important that they have the opportunity to enjoy as much sport as possible before this age.
During the class, children will use many different types of equipment and activities to develop gymnastics skills which will also enhance many other sport skills, for example: throwing and catching for handball skills; football skills; hand-eye coordination for racket skills; running, jumping, rebounding and landing for athletic skills, as well as physical fitness, spatial awareness and coordination for all sports. Children will also begin to learn how to work as part of a team and also gain confidence in their individual ability and skills.
Your child will develop important key skills which will enhance his/ her PHYSICAL, INTELLECTUAL, EDUCATIONAL and
SOCIAL Awareness, Skills.
Through developing gross motor and fine motor skills, the child gains experience of managing their own bodies with assurance to achieve body control, adaptability and alertness. Listening, concentration, timing and co-ordination skills are all improved with the aid of music and rhythmic activities (usually during warm-up and cool down). A strong foundation of Gymnastics and movement skills which will enhance the natural development of a growing child are encouraged and developed.
Children will develop the ability to think independently; their imaginations will be hugely stimulated and they will learn how to solve problems efficiently and safely.
Learning is enhanced through the use of music, colours, numbers, shapes, direction, vocabulary, counting, nursery rhymes, stories, and more. Important listening skills are developed and improved.
