Founded by Tamzin McSweeney in 2017, Gymkidz had a handful of equipment and a dream to grow happy resilient children in a local nurturing environment.
The Gymkidz programme has grown and changed over the years but our foundation remains grounded in simple movement milestones using gymnastic skills as a platform to get your little one Moving, Thinking and Growing.
What We Offer
From 0 to 12 years, Gymkidz offers a whole range of recreational gymnastics classes, workshops and birthdays in Newtown.
All classes are age appropriate, with kids grouped according to their size and skill levels. Your child progresses at their own pace, tackling new challenges and skills each week over a fun-filled 10 week term.
Book a free trial or start with our drop-in Playtime classes from 0 to 5 years. Move through Kindergym classes ages 5-6 years, Preschool ages 6-12 and continue all the way through to our Pre-school Plus+ and Primary aged groups, moving up as they grow.
Our Core Gymnastics Programme Pillars
Our approach fosters development through our three essential pillars in Movement, Thinking and Growing.
At Gymkidz our primary focus is to get kids moving. We focus on a wide variety of movements and skills including strength, flexibility, balance, posture and coordination
We work on developing left and right brain integration, improving spacial awareness, problem solving, language and listening skills
Our program is a structured class that develops essential life skills tailored to their ages, including emotional and social behaviour, concentration and team work
Rewards & Level-Ups!
Once achieving all 10 skills on a card, Primary gymnasts progress through our 5 Gymkidz Rainbow Levels.
Coaches are always on the lookout for exceptional listening, kindness and perseverance to give special Move, Think and Grow awards and a prize from our extra special Treasure Chest!
A Different Adventure Each Term...
Gymkidz skills sticker sheets are a fun way for your little one to track their hard work as they progress. Each term sheet is unique and keeps kids inspired and motivated with rewards for completing each skill.

What Others Are Saying...
I am so happy to have found Gymkidz for my 6 year old. We have been to two other Gym schools and this is the best one. I love the balance they have between equipment and floor. Teachers are really attentive and engaging and so nice! The kids all look so happy and the teachers keep them interested. Love the location and space
