Baby Swimmers

Classes are fun with singing and skill related activities. Physically your baby will gain greater muscle control and hand-eye co-ordination, alertness is also improved through word association such as “reach”, whilst looking at and reaching for toys, which also stimulates the natural movement of their arms and legs.

Holding your baby in water is a fantastic bonding experience and rewarding too, as you interact and develop trust,  letting them float on their backs whilst singing twinkle twinkle little star and looking into their eyes is beautiful.  We teach you to take baby underwater and it fabulous when you sit at the bottom of the pool and see your baby swim to you!

For older children we focus on stamina and stroke techniques, whatever their age and ability.

Classes from 6 weeks old up to 14 years old, with classes in Harrogate on Tuesday afternoons at Spring Water School, High Street, Starbeck, Harrogate HG2 7LW

Harrogate Gymnastics Pre-School Sessions

Pre-School – Term time sessions

Getting a head start

Bouncing, spinning, rolling – children are already natural-born gymnasts. So if you want to help yours develop their physical skills, what better place to start than at Harrogate Gymnastics? In our Pre-school Classes we teach your children important skills like balance and co-ordination. With expert supervision and a playful environment, it’s a great way for them to have fun and lay the foundations of a healthy, active lifestyle. With an adventure playground to explore and lots of exciting activities to get involved in, the sessions are always energetic and entertaining. And while they’re having fun with new friends, they’ll also be getting a head start in the world of physical exercise.

Structured Classes

Our pre-school structured classes are for children aged from 2.5 years old who can participate independently of their parent/carer. Each class is 40 minutes of fun, continuous activity using the full range of gymnastic equipment, trampolines, and the foam pit. With a small coach to children ratio, each child receives proper instruction and has many opportunities to practise gymnastic skills that help develop and improve their listening skills, balance, spacial awareness, coordination, flexibly, agility, and strength. We will regularly evaluate each child’s progress against the stage criteria to see which specific areas need further work, where they are excelling and how much they are improving.

 

Drop-in Sessions.

All of our drop-in sessions are open to all pre-school children accompanied by an adult and, new to the drop-in, we now have a special baby area for our smallest members. Sessions are £5 each child, and there’s no need to book – just come along and have a go!
