This class builds fundamental gymnastics skills at a young age, so by the age of 3 children are ready to work independently. The class begins with a soft play introduction, moving on to a sponge run. Various activities follow, including low rings, fast-track trampoline, bars beam, parachute and an activity circuit, and change from week to week. Sessions last for 1 hour finishing with songs and stickers. Parents are encouraged to join in with their child, so come along and have some fun!

The ‘Funkycat’ scheme & the pre-school proficiency awards employed at Gymworld introduce fun physical activity to pre-school children. Each session begins with games, stretches, and a foam pit run. Children then follow a carefully designed programme working towards their award - improving action, balance and co-ordination.

Each term they will follow a different theme, which is accompanied with a certificate and badge. This is followed by the chance to have a go on one of the pieces of apparatus we offer in our facility. Each session lasts for one hour and finishes with songs and stickers. These sessions are booked in 8 week blocks.

Party Feedback

"Fantastic party!! Fab support throughout booking, even when we had to change the date due to chicken pox. Staff were extremely helpful. Organisation was brilliant. Hosts were very friendly and led the party very well. Children had an amazing time. Thank you very much."

"Such a great structured yet fun gymnastics party based at Gymworld in Middlesbrough College. Not only is the gym spotlessly clean and fresh and perfect for bouncy 6/7 year olds, the staff have put the perfect party package together. The staff remembered all the kids names and encouraged them to take part and learn new skills."
