KinderGym (Singleton PCYC only)

 

KinderGym is Gymnastics Australia's movement-based learning experience for young children and their caregivers.

 

Children need as many opportunities as possible to optimise brain development and increase physical potential before they go to school. 

 

KinderGym provides a safe environment for children to develop physical skills in a fun and playful way, at their own rate.  Educational research tells us that children learn best through exploring and discovering their abilities through physical activity. 

 

Gymnastics Australia's KinderGym program offers children a LaunchPad into fundamental movement; ensuring they can experience a wide range of movement activities and be encouraged to think, create, construct and solve problems with their own bodies. 

 

KinderGym programs assist in your child's physical, social and cognitive development, as well as co-ordination and self-esteem.
