About The Gymkidz Programme 

The Gymkidz programme is built around basic movement milestones with its foundations in gymnastics. Our classes are age appropriate where children progress at their own rate, tackling new challenges and skills each week over a 10 week term. The Gymkidz environment is fun but the essence of what we do is founded in educating and nurturing happy, confident and well-rounded children.
