TotGym | 18 months to 3.5 years
What can I expect in TotGym programs?
We believe an active start gives kids the confidence they need to stay healthy and active for life. We encourage all little tots to get moving as early as they can! Our club is basically a giant, squishy, brightly coloured playground; amazing for motor and sensory development. Enjoy bright colours, silly songs, socialization, sensory play and motor development (think bouncing, climbing, walking, rolling and spinning). Parents, you'll get sweaty and have fun too. the class has lots of parent and me teamwork and our coaches encourage socialization for parents as well!
Our coaches will start with a silly song or an interactive game warm up and stretch, parents be prepared to get sweaty. We do lots of parent-and-tot rolling, hopping and interacting in these warm ups.
We will then go exploring on the gymnastics equipment, trying out new stations each week starting with practicing bouncing, climbing, walking, rolling and spinning, sensory development and eventually moving to learning how to follow gymnastics circuits and more advanced motor development. We will adapt our learning progressions to be appropriate for each class once we meet them on day one. We will then end with a fun activity to encourage socialization and freeplay; some squishy block building, parachute fun, foam pit play or other fun activity our coaches have planned.

This is a semi-structured class lead by one of our experienced coaches; tots will play games and learn bars, beam, floor, trampoline, tumble trak! Our coaches recognize that this may be the first ever structured class setting that your tot is trying to participate in so leave your worries behind and come and play!
We're continually taking feedback from the community, and we're currently trying to "narrow down" our age & level ranges so we can put on the best classes possible. We recognize a need for a few classes a week focused on our youngest members. We are offering 3 classes a week this session for kids who are 18 months to 30 months.

Tumble Bugs Senior | Ages 2.5 years to 3.5 years | Parent Participation
This is a 50 minute class designed for experienced tots, we recommend this class for tots who have already done Tumble Bugs Mini and/or Tumble Bugs and are more confident in the gymnastics gym. This kids should be able to follow directions from the teacher (with parents helpful supervision, of course). This class will give kids a head start and confidence to go into our Tumble Bunnies program, while still having the support from parent participation. This class is also ideal for kids who are 3 and eligible for Tumble Bunnies, but still seek mom or dad's hand for help to get them comfortable in the gym.
