SIGN UP YOUR 4 YEAR OLD NOW!  ????

EVERY TUESDAY 10.15-11.15AM

A great time for those non-schoolers and a great way to learn structure through fun and physical activity.

The children venture into the gym on their own without a parent. We encourage learning, social awareness and cognitive development, through basic gymnastic skills.

Our lobby area has the fish bowl effect, so each parent can see every aspect of the class... don't worry, we have tea & coffee in the kitchen!

Each week our special themes, from stories and physical creativity.

Throughout the class, the instructors will be showing and encouraging new skills and activities to try on the equipment. From the beginning stages of a handstand or cartwheel, skills on the bar and beam and even vaulting. Each child will receive individual tuition based on their abilities and each teacher will give specific feedback to progress the skills.

If you would like to book a free introductory class please contact us!

Giggle Worms 4yrs Old

Giggle Wrom 4 years Gymnastics Harpenden

 

Giggle Worms, everyday, Monday - Saturday! 

Giggle Worms for four year olds is the most similar programme to what we’re been used to, because if it’s not broken, why fix it!

We have found that keeping the Giggle Worms to just 4 year olds however has been a fantastic change for all the children involved. The difference in a child who has just turned four and one who is almost six is extensive not only physically but socially and emotionally too. Having the ability to separate these children has allowed us to really focus on the four year olds and progress their skills at an age appropriate level. This in turn as allowed us to have the five year olds in their own ‘Good Friends’ class which now has more of a ‘grown up’ feel to it.

We have more opportunities to prepare these children for the jump to Flips/ Hot Shots and the new structure there. Good Friends now involves group tumbling activities, chants rather than songs, varied and more advanced skills and fun ’30 second challenges’ whilst on stations. These are much closer to the activities in the Flips/ Hot Shots (6-12 years) classes and so the transition when the Good Friends turn 6 has become much easier for both the children and teachers.

Lauren, Gym Director

Great Reviews from our Members

Balance Gymnastics St Albans Harpenden Luton

Here is just a few of our reviews from our valued members here at The Little Gym Harpenden!

'My son has been attending the little gym's exciting, energetic classes for a few years now and the team never to fail to deliver. Each week is a new focus which helps to keep the children interested whilst continuing to build on their strength and basic skills. The team at Little Gym Harpenden are a lovely, friendly and approachable group and I couldn't ask for a better bunch of teachers.'


 'The Little Gym is my kids' favourite activity. They learn a lot of essential skills in a really fun environment.'

'Our two sons love their little gym sessions. They have learnt so much from them, their skills seem to improve week on week. The teachers there are amazing, always warm and welcoming. We would not be without little gym in our lives!'

 

We always appreciate great feedback from such committed members! 


Funny Bugs 3yrs Old


FunnyBug 3yrs The Little Gym Harpenden

Funny Bugs- Arguably the most appropriately named class on the schedule because of course all children can be ‘funny’ sometimes!

We now have a specially designed set of lesson plans that allow for more movement, creativity and chance to be themselves in the class. At 3 years old it can be very difficult to follow a structure or activity for longer than a few minutes and with our new plan we have the activities changing every five minutes, keeping the children as busy as possible and therefore engaged. We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response from the children, they love the chance to run around during the ‘Move and Learn’ at the start (and many don’t even realised they’re learning!) and the addition of both a game and ball activity is always as winner.

The feedback from parents has been fantastic, particularly mentioning how much energy we can burn in just a 50 minute session!
