Head Over Heels Fun for Little Monkeys
Little Monkeys Gym, Kidlington

Are you always looking for something new and fun to do with your little monkey, especially one with lots of energy? Why not try out Little Monkeys Gym?

Little Monkeys Gym - setting up the soft play


It's a travelling gym with sessions in Kidlington, Stonesfield and Woodstock. Run by two lovely ladies who are fully qualified British Gymnastics coaches, you can feel confident that your child will have fun and be safe. The classes are for walking to 4 years old and last for 45 minutes.

Each class involves both structured and free play. I've taken my son a couple of times to the Kidlington class and each time we have started with some music, singing and movement. This is a great way to get all the kids together and focused.

The soft play equipment is ideal for building your little monkey's physical abilities. Clambering over blocks, crawling through tunnels and slithering down slides. A circular assault course is set up with each child taking it in turns to complete. It was great to see my son improving his balance and being supported by the coaches to learn forward and backward rolls. He keeps saying head over heels to me now.

Little Monkeys Gym also includes climbing apparatus. Children learn to climb, balance and co-ordinate their limbs all with the continued support of the coaches.

Between the structured games, there's plenty of time for free play using items that have been part of the organised sessions. Bean bags and mini hockey sticks, a mini trampoline and a giant colourful circle to throw sticky balls is great fun.

The classes "incorporate the British Gymnastics FUNdamental movement ideas for early years shceme".

As well as developing your child, it's also fun to do something different with them and meet other mums. After the Kidlington class you can relax and have a cup of tea in the room next door.
