GymTots for 12 months (walking) – 4 year olds

We are excited to introduce our 45-minute GymTots class, specially designed for little ones aged 1-4 years old.

Our friendly and enthusiastic coaches lead a structured lesson that incorporates fun activities and gymnastics techniques. But what makes this class truly special is the opportunity for parents to join in on the fun! We believe that involving parents in their child’s learning journey strengthens the bond between them and creates a supportive environment for growth.

Each fortnight, we have a different theme that keeps things exciting and engaging for our young gymnasts. The class begins with a warm-up and group activity before moving onto specific circuits and activities. Not only does this help develop gross and fine motor skills, but it also introduces children to key cognitive skills such as following instructions and taking turns.

Our GymTots class is not just about physical development, it’s about preparing children for their next stage of education. By participating in this class, parents can actively support their child’s learning journey and help them get ready for 4 year old kinder and school.

Join us at Reach Gymnastics today and watch your child reach new heights both physically and mentally!

When: Monday to Friday 9.30am-10.15am, 10.30am-11.15am, 11.30am-12.15pm
