Kindergym is an exceptional program to get your child moving and developing from an early age, providing a strong base for all educational and sporting activities into the future.
Our program operated from our Windsor Centre covers all the innate movement patterns and develops movement patterns which encourage connection and growth of the human body, incorporating brain development and cognitive improvements.
During a kindergym class children will practice all Dominant Movement Pattern motions, including rolling, swinging, static shape, landing, spring and locomotion, where they can explore and feel comfortable in their body in a safe & inviting environment.
Children and families will also interact with other families, forming a community. We have families still involved within our community that have been around for 16+ years!
Parents must check in with the administration when entering
Parent participation/assistance is required through ENTIRE duration of the class.
Siblings in KG classes that are not booked in must sit on the side and parent must provide something for them to do while the class is running. They are not covered by our insurance if they are not booked in the class.
MGC does not provide a child-care service. Our classes are designed for parents and children to work together in the class. This implies that parents are listening to the coaches’ instructions and assisting with their children, supervising their children and ensuring they are paying attention and trying each activity. We find that parents who do not participate fully not only impact negatively on other families’ participation but also that of their own child
