Mini Marvels is designed as a transitioning class. Your child may be able to participate independently from a parent or may still need a little help to make the big step. Children are encouraged and motivated to learn in a structured class involving group skills, songs, sharing and caring, exciting games and individual apparatus instruction.

A typical class:

After a few minutes of open play and exploration while children and their parents/nannies arrive, everyone gathers in a circle and introduces their child, giving the kids an opportunity to get focused for class. This time encourages you and your child to engage together in exercises and stretching in a fun and dynamic way.

Once the children are warmed up, we allow for them to have a period of free time to play around the gym with fun toys and also to experience our safe gymnastics equipment with close supervision by their parent or guardian.

Next it’s time for gymnastics skills with the instructors. Changing weekly to keep things exciting, these skills are carefully designed for children to begin to learn body awareness and build strength and coordination while also learning to trust their parent and instructors. Children are spilt up into smaller groups that rotate through the different skills while parents help their children to sit and wait their turn, learning patience and focus.

Each class finishes up with either a fun game or a puppet show that encourages children to participate together in an engaging social group activity.  And of course, hugs and smiles are always welcome!
