Pre-School

Our pre-school programme is designed for children from 6 months old to school age and aims to develop their balance, co-ordination, gross and fine motor skills, special awareness and body control, while learning about colours, numbers, word association and social interaction, all in a safe and fun environment.

The classes are 45 minutes long, and run during term times only (we use West Sussex County Council school holiday dates).

Sessions consist of warm-up games with hand apparatus and action songs, apparatus circuits to help develop their skills and to challenge the different age groups. Qualified British Gymnastics pre-school coaches are on hand to help and encourage the children and show their parents how to support them through their basic skills. The classes are split into different age groups to enable the children to work at an appropriate level.

All classes contain different themes and objectives each week and follow the British Gymnastics ABC Proficiency Badge Scheme

Trampoline For The Under 3'S

We have been advised by British Gymnastics, our governing body, that the use of the trampoline for under 3 years old should be restricted due to the risk of neck injury in this age of children with immediate effect.

We will place a mat over the trampoline to restrict the height of which the children can bounce. Please remember that if you choose to get on the trampoline with your child you will increase the height your child bounces.

Please remember only one child should use the trampoline at any one time.

When your child moves to an independent class (3 & 4 year olds), the trampoline will be uncovered but used only to teach different shape gymnastics jumps and controlled bouncing.
