Gymnastics Movement Programme
We strongly believe that the physical development of each growing child is important as it contributes greatly to the acquisition of language, social and emotional development.
The school engages BearyFun Gym to run the Gymnastics Movement Programme for the Nursery, and Kindergarten One and Two children. The coaches are qualified and trained to work with preschoolers.
The programme is integrated into the curriculum and aims to develop children’s gross motor skills such as muscular strength, endurance, balance, co-ordination and pro social behaviour.
The programme also focuses on the development of the child’s dominant movement patterns (such as jumping and landing skills, rolling, balance while still or moving, travelling and use of parts of the body in a controlled way) and the acquisition of simple gymnastics movements such as forward rolls. These fundamental movement abilities are required for work, sports and recreational activities.
