STATEMENT

We felt that we needed to give a statement as we have had lots of requests regarding Parties and Our Playgym sessions.

Due to the coronavirus we had to close then stop our parties and playgym. Now restrictions are being lifted (slowly) and cautiously we are in the discussion stages of how we can reopen Harlequin to its full potential and offer all our pre-covid services to you.

PlayGym

We have decided not to open our playgym free roam sessions as of yet. We are still working out the logistics with regard to the restrictions we have to follow for these sessions. Please be aware we will not have as many sessions as pre-covid as we are offering playgym aged children semi structured classes during the day.

If you wish for more information please email us at Harlequingymnasticshome@gmail.com and our admin team will send you the details.

Parties

We do wish to place these back into our programme as we know the children loved a gymnastics party. At present we are discussing the finer details and will be placing all details on our website and social media pages in due course.

Many thanks for the understanding and the waiting is almost over.

Groups

There are several groups and classes, so one of them is bound to be right for you. For classes, see the programme.

Play Gym

Ages 0 - 4 years

This is an open session where you don’t have to book and you pay weekly. The gym has soft play equipment, bars, beams, ladders, tunnels, bouncy castles etc.

Your child will learn to improve their balancing, running, swinging, climbing, bouncing and jumping etc.

Please note: you have to stay to supervise your child.


Mini Stars

Ages 3 - 4 years

Parents leave the children with the instructors for this class. The session consists of a warn up to music, fun exercises, imitating animals, (a fun way of strengthening muscles), skipping and hopping.

Then they go on to work with bean bags, rope, ball, hoops, rolls, occasional trampolining, parachute and bouncy castle, varying each week. They then follow a circuit of apparatus and finish with a song. Children work towards British Gymnastics Badges.


Junior Stars

Ages 4 - 6 years

This class is about getting ready to move into the age 5+ gym class. It starts the same as Mini Gym with warming up to music, exercise, animals, hopping and skipping.

Then the children are split into groups and go on the Bars, Beams, Trampet, Floor, Vault and Trampoline, varying the apparatus each week.

Children work towards British Gymnastic Badges.


General Gymnastic Classes

Bronze (5 - 7 years); Silver (6 - 9 years); Gold (8 - 10); and Platinum (10+ years)

Gymnasts are moved into this class when basic skills have been achieved. I.e. backward and forward rolls, cartwheels, handstands, headstands and displaying confidence on the apparatus.

After the warm up, they go onto the Bars, Beams, Trampet, Floor, Vault, and Trampoline, varying each week.
