Specifically designed Gymnastics program for ages walking - 2.5years old.
 

Are you struggling to find a safe and educational way for your toddle to use their physical energy and sense of curiosity in a fun way? Relax; most parents struggle to find the answer, but the parents who attend our gymnastics programs with their toddlers and pre-schoolers know the solution is to engage their children with activities that stimulate gross motor skills, fine motor skills, imagination and play through climbing, jumping, rolling, swinging and general movement.

Little EdGym is a play-based, parent assisted program which has been developed for children to utilise their natural curiosity and exploration of the environment around them. Activities are designed for a younger age group, taking into account their activity levels and concentration spans.

Our Little EdGym Program is conducted in purpose based space, using equipment designed for this age group.
