General Information

For working parents with children in the full day programme from 9-5pm, you are welcome to drop off your children to us from 8.30am and pick up by 5.30pm. During this time (8:30-9am and 5-5:30pm) children will have unsupervised quiet time upstairs in the mezzanine area, where there are board games and colouring to entertain them. We hope this service provides you with a semi-stress free holiday period! Please note our programme caters for all ages and abilities.

Your child will:

  • Have fun and build confidence
  • Explore and develop new skills
  • Gain strength, agility & flexibility
  • Meet new friends in a safe environment
  • Use all large/small gymnastics equipment (trampolines, beams, bars, vault, double mini, balls, hoops)

All sessions are supervised by a Lead Coach and our team of knowledgable coaches.  Our coaches are energetic, enthusiastic, enjoy working with children and teaching them gymnastic based skills.  Any additional activities over and above gymnastics based sessions will be advertised here closer to the holiday period.

  • When children arrive they can leave their shoes, bag, etc in the cubby holes under the stair case or on the mezzanine floor area.

  • A Coach will come up to the mezzanine floor to call the class - you should head straight upstairs when you arrive. We ask that parents take note which class your child is enrolled in to ensure that your child goes with the correct coach.

  • If you are late please ask your child to join their group or come into the office for a staff member to take them into the main gym area.

  • Children will complete a "Progress Check" during 2 weeks of classes towards the end of term to asses whether they are ready to move up to the next level. After both sessions a certificate will be awarded to the gymnast advising which class to re-enrol into for the following term.
