The Joeys class is aimed at children age 18 months to approximately 30 months of age. When the coach feels that they are ready, children can then move up to the Kangaroo class, where they can choose to remain until they start full-time school, or alternatively until they join the Koalas at age 3.
The Joeys class aims to introduce toddlers and their parents/carers into gymnastics by keeping them as active as possible. Toddlers can access a variety of apparatus under the supervision of the instructor. They will learn basic gymnastics skills, body control such as gross motor skills, co-ordination and balance, whilst developing their confidence. Parents/carers are encouraged to be active with their toddlers and use all the apparatus while waiting for their turn with the instructor in order to get the most out of the session. At this age, a very hands-on approach is taken, putting the children into the correct positions and guiding them through skills so that they learn the correct patterns of movement before progressing to performing skills independently. There is also a focus on the personal development of the toddler, their language and communication skills as well as their understanding of simple counting. This is achieved by the way in which the instructor interacts with the toddler, teaching gymnastics and through fun and games. These are all transferable skills and are not only vital to gymnastics but all other areas of life.
Membership is calculated based on a full year of lessons and divided into twelve monthly payments. We require 30 days notice in order to cancel any direct debits. For those joining mid way through a month, the first month will be taken at full price and the second month will be reduced in accordance.
