Come join our Jitterbugs Gymfun classes!

Introduction to Classes

At Jitterbugs, we love to see all children get the chance to experience the fun of active movement in a creative and safe environment. We offer morning sessions for 2 -– 5 year olds (Kindergym / creative arts) and afternoon sessions for 5 -– 12 years olds (gymnastics skills) to best fit into your busy lifestyle.

In each class, we offer a variety of gymnastics / movement skills in a themed creative atmosphere of fun - aimed to develop the whole child - socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically.

Our themed activities (which change fortnightly) are designed to offer a colourful and stimulating gym space, which helps create a fun atmosphere for parents and children to enjoy. All our equipment is child-sized and ready for action with safety always our top priority.

Discovering new friends through the weekly classes is also important while children learn about teamwork from fun activities like “'parachute'” and treasure hunt games.

All our sessions run for one hour and with small class groups, your child can be guaranteed to receive quality coaching and specialised, individual attention. Our coaches are not only skilled and experienced but they also love to see their group growing in confidence each week.

Kindergym / creative arts classes (for 2-5 year olds)

These Gymnastics Australia accredited Kindergym classes use exciting play themes each fortnight (Superhero Action”, “Pirates and Princesses”, “Food and Fitness” and more) to inspire your child to relax, have fun and learn with others.

Your child will learn simple gymnastics skills such as tumbling, balancing, vaulting and bar skills on our special equipment designed for little people. They will also explore a world of music, drama and dance. Each fortnight, we introduce different gymnastics equipment and circuits to keep activities challenging and interesting.

In these classes, the basic gymnastics skills are taught alongside activities that develop their essential fine motor skills. We also have brain power time with puzzles and special craft activities that relate to the fortnightly themes.

Your active participation as a parent / carer is necessary in these Kindergym classes.

Gymnastics classes (for 5-12 year olds)

Our Gymnastics classes for 5-12 year olds focus specifically on more challenging gymnastics skills. You will see your child progress to developing their coordination for cartwheels, handstands, trampoline routines and practicing skills on the bars, vault and mini-trampoline.

We also playfully introduce competition aspects like performing set routines in front of parents and being scored for activities they do. However, the focus remains on fun as we build confidence and skill in your child.

These classes are conducted after school to suit your busy family lifestyle.
