KinderGym



What is KinderGym?


Our Kindergym program is conducted in a safe, structure and multisensory environment. We work on fundamental movements patterns and Gymnastics foundation skills which are essential in Early Childhood, to develop the whole child. We use qualified and accredited nurturing coaches which will extend their participants to reach their full potential.

The classes cover a broad range of skills and techniques to engage, with such areas as: music, group time, guided discovery, gross and fine motor skills, Visual perception, postural awareness, crossing the midline of the body (essential for reading and writing), self-esteem, confidence, character building, listening, observing and following instructions. Not to mention, swinging, rotating, jumping, balancing... Learning Though Play

"Teaching Life Lessons", one child at a time 😊

Mini Monkeys

You are never too little to learn. In our exciting and safe environment the child has the opportunity to experience, explore and LEARN through PLAY whilst being guided by our early childhood movement educators.

Spider Monkeys

3 and 4 y.o. (45min class Parent assisted)

This is an age where they are very keen to be extended and challenged, whilst learning to following instructions. We encourage endless movement opportunities that get them thinking, creating, constructing and problem solving their own bodies. Which in turn assists with confidence and coordination.

Chimps

1 to 4 yrs (45min class Parent assisted)

This class is perfect for the parent/carer who would like two siblings in the same timeslot. The preferred option would be an age appropriate class, but we understand tight family schedules. This class follows our Kindergym structure to enhance their LEARNING experience through PLAY.

Gorillas

Pre-Prep (1 hour class, work independently)

This program is for children attending 4yo Kinder and heading to school the following year. This works with the Social, Emotional and Physical development the child is undertaking whilst becoming more Independent in their 4yo Kinder year.

While we have lots of fun, using large muscle groups and fine motor skills, we also teach:

  • Building Imagination
  • Enhancing physical skills
  • Building their Physical Literacy
  • Forming friendships and social skills
  • Learning self-control and gaining self esteem
  • Problem solving
  • Getting READY for success in school, work and LIFE

Baby Monkeys

4 months to 12 months (45 min class)

Working on the Gymnastics Australia “BabyGym” model, this provides a strong foundation for their critical early years. This period of a child’s life will influence their movement abilities later. The development areas the program focuses on are:

  • Brain development
  • Social interaction
  • Balance
  • Fine motor skills
  • Body Awareness
  • Vestibular stimulation
  • Core strength
  • Sensory system

Night Owls

Walking to Kinder age
Night Owls

For all the little ones that won't go to sleep.

Night Owls is a special session running from 6pm till 8pm every Thursday (excluding School Holidays and Public Holidays).

The setup follows the same theme as a regular kindergym session, however there is no structure. Apart from a few group activities (numbers permitting), the rest of the evening is parent supervised free play.

Parents are able to come in with their child any time from 6pm, and stay as long as they want.

No booking is required, simply turn up, pay and play.

Have dinner, bring them down, wear them out, and maybe they'll fall asleep in the car on the way home.

Pilot program, sessions running Thursday 14, 21 and 28th March. 6.00 PM to 8.00 PM.

$ 12 entry fee payable on arrival.

Enrollments / Trial Classes

To enrol in a class we will first need an enrollment form completed, this can be done by clicking this link - https://www.movingmonkeys.com.au/new-student. The enrollment form has all the information we need for insurance and to fulfill our reporting obligations to Gymnastics Victoria / Australia.

All classes are subject to maximum numbers, so once the form is submitted (there is an option at the end for additional students if you have multiple), then you will need to contact us to let us know your prefered class / session times. You can reach us via email at office@movingmonkeys.com.au, Facebook messenger @movingmonkeysau, or Telephone 03 8609 6355

We suggest all new participants come along for a couple of weeks as a trial at the casual rate. After this point if they wish to continue you can either continue to pay casually for the remainder of the term, or we can deduct what has already been paid from the remainder of the term fee. If you are starting after week 5 then you simply stay on the casual rate until the end of the term.
