At Mini Monkey Gym we have unique soft obstacle courses to explore which support a weekly movement theme and physical skill. Mini Monkeys enjoy jumping off blocks, balancing on beams, rolling down slopes, sliding on tummies, moving backwards, crawling through tunnels, climbing in, out, up and over and lots, lots more! Pre-mobile Mini Monkeys have fun with movement activities to strengthen their bodies in preparation to become mobile, including rocking, rolling, standing, pull ups, and of course lots of tummy time!
At Mini Monkey Gym we use different sensory and musical props each week to compliment the movement theme such as, ribbons, beanbags, hula hoops, transparent scarves, maracas, bells and lots more! Mini Monkeys are on the move all the time with our active musical movement, which really gets everyone, and even the adults, moving! We enjoy lots of bending, stretching, jumping, turning, shaking, wiggling, stamping, clapping and swinging at Mini Monkey Gym.
Mini Monkey Gym classes follow the same structure each week. This promotes recognition for your child and builds their confidence to join in with the circle time activities, songs and parachute play. Our classes are very relaxed and friendly so children join in when they are ready and are free to explore in their own way! Our classes are fun and social, offering parents a wonderful opportunity for special one-on-one time with their child and a chance to meet other like-minded families.
The Mini Monkey Gym professionally developed programme has been designed to help babies, toddlers and young children develop their physical skills and get their bodies moving! Movement in babies and toddlers is crucial to stimulating brain development and encouraging the creation of those all important neural connections in the first few years. Mini Monkey Gym gives you and your child the opportunity to enjoy lots of fun and sensory movement experiences together which promote this important development.
Our carefully structured 4 stage programme incorporates different movement themes each week using specially designed colourful soft playgym obstacle courses and sensory equipment. Our unique soft obstacle courses are on a completely soft matted area which offers your child freedom of movement and helps them build their physical confidence in a safe and fun environment. Our classes see your child increase in their physical skills of locomotion, balance, agility, climbing and coordination.
Our circle times are full of fun active songs and rhymes, utilising sensory and musical props . These engage your child and develop their language skills, sense of rhythm and movement. Our sensory movement activities encourage exploration, creativity and self awareness.
