Gym Monkeys

The Pre-school Gym Monkeys programme provides a stimulating play environment where the child works independently to develop multiple basic skills that can one day be transferred into many different sports. This fun packed class is for children aged 3 years up to starting primary school. It is a very active class where our experienced coaches allow the children to learn and develop through experimental play, songs and different hand apparatus.

Class Structure

The basic structure of the Gym Monkeys Pre-schhol class is:

Circle Time (15-20 mins)
In the first section of the class, the children work on the floor area learning about various different themes and working with music to do whole body movements to warm up.

Equipment (20-25 mins)
The children then move around the various pieces of equipment in groups where they can explore by climbing, jumping, rolling, swinging, balancing – developing independence, self confidence and body awareness whilst also learning about taking turns, sharing and working with other children.

Cool Down (5 mins)
To end the class all the children come back together to do the cool down, this usually comprises of an action song or rhyme where the children develop rhythm and hand eye coordination.
