Why choose Kindergym as an activity for your little one?

Kindergym is a gymnastics program designed for children from 9 months to 5 years old that helps them to develop a mix of fundamental movement skills, gymnastics skills and neuro-nastic skills. It is a positive movement experience, presented with colourful, interactive activities that relate to a fortnightly theme in order to positively influence a child’s long-term outlook on physical activity. 

The program runs in each school term, which coincides with the school year. Throughout the term, the children have access to all apparatus areas of the club. In each weekly 50-min – hour session they participate in ‘circuits’ – a combination of fundamental gymnastics skills, physical challenges, and play activities that simultaneously stimulate the imagination. 

These activities assist in the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of a child within an exciting, structured, multi-sensory environment. The program provides an effective way to develop skills needed for primary education, such as sequencing, compartmentalisation and the ability to understand order processes. 

Children learn successfully through the observation of  others and the positive reinforcement from the adults around

them so we strive to create a safe and fun environment where child and caregiver (or educator) can play together. 

We focus on developing a child’s self-esteem and self confidence creating a safe but challenging environment providing access to appropriate equipment set up with variety and change fostering a non-competitive, relaxed and friendly environment tailoring the program to the needs and abilities of each child.

Gymnastics Australia and Woden Valley Gymnastics Club is partnered with the Sports Australia Physical Literacy Framework. Gymnastics provides a foundation for movement and physical activity for life, focusing on the skills linked with physical, psychological, social and cognitive development.
