Research has shown that children who have a positive experience with activity before the age of 5 stay active. Play is a serious business; it should be a fun, enjoyable activity that stimulates the development of the mind and body. Pre-school gymnastics provides a stimulating play environment that is the key to starting children on the sporting pathway and getting them active for life. A good pre-school gym experience can provide social, physical, lingual & intellectual, creative & emotional awareness and improve concentration, competence & confidence. It also sets children firmly on the path to being active for life – our clubs report that they keep up to 80% of their pre-school participants after they graduate from pre-school gymnastics – a commendable result.
