LITTLE STARS: STRUCTURED SESSIONS FOR UNDER 3'S

 

Do you have a toddler who loves to climb, jump, swing and play?

Little Stars is aimed at children from just learning to walk-3yrs.

 

LWGC's 'Little Stars' pre-school gymnastics program is aimed at toddlers who are just learning to walk up to 3 yrs. The session is delivered as a structured play class, designed so grown up's can spend some time bonding with their child, enjoying short circle times and allowing children explore the colourful pre school apparatus.

 

Our coaches are there to advise of correct supporting and to explain the focus for the session. Every week/session has a different theme, e.g. transport, numbers and colours, farm etc. and the session follows that theme. Sessions involve circle time, which is completely optional and often depends on the individual as to whether they are ready to take part. We have Circle time too where grown up's bring their child to sit in a circle and sing a song, play a game, discuss what to do on the apparatus, or sing our goodbye song and receive stickers! Gymnasts are awarded participation certificates at the end of each term and coaches can also begin ticking off skills on each individuals award chart.

GYM STARS: PRE SCHOOL - Over 3's

 

For pre schoolers aged 3 and 4 who love to explore, use their imagination

and challenge themselves! The Gym Stars program gives your child a head start with a new physical environment to explore and new social interactions. 

 

A more structured class aiming to give pre-schoolers an introduction to our after school General Gymnastics program. Each session gymnasts will work on two pieces of apparatus (beam, bars or rings, floor, tumble, vault) and will practice skills suitable for their level of ability.  Every week/session has a different theme, e.g. transport, numbers and colours, farm etc. Gymnasts will work on developing their strength, flexibility, coordination and technical model for different skills through imagination and play on our fun, colourful apparatus. Throughout each term coaches will be ticking off skills as and when gymnasts achieve them on their individual award charts.

 

At Gym Stars we follow the British Gymnastics pre school curriculum which is focused around Action, Balance and Coordination (ABC) although we have developed our own range of certificates that are included in class fees. These are important skills used in every day life encouraging the development of strength, balance, coordination, posture and flexibility, as well as underpinning the basic foundations of the sport.
