KinderGym is a set of 3 structured programs focused on children having fun with their parents & caregivers while developing the fundamentals of movement. Each program leads into the next but can be started at any time or stage. The first of the KinderGym programs is Phoenix Hatchlings, the second is Phoenix Nestlings and the third is Phoenix Fledglings. While there are age groups specified for each of the programs these are guidelines only with each child recognised for their physical & emotional readiness to move to the next program.
Phoenix Hatchlings classes are for 1 - 2 years of age. These Hatchlings have fun with their parents and caregivers rolling, walking, jumping, dancing, playing games, generally having a real ball. The program is structured but definitely still loads of fun for everyone.
Phoenix Nestlings are for 2 - 3 years of age and is still orientated to having their parents & caregivers with them. Again these classes are all about fun & games, structured fun & games but definitely still great fun. So much fun they don’t even realise they are learning new skills.
Our Phoenix Fledglings classes are the final part of the KinderGym program and are for children aged 4 - 5 years old. This program is where the children are really starting to put things together and more obviously incorporate higher level movement skills into the fun & games. In this program parents & care givers are still there but can step back a bit to give their children greater independence.
