Nurture Program

Our KinderGym program is both aged-based and ability-based designed specifically with our youngest gymnasts and their parents in mind. KinderGym is a great development program that you can enjoy experiencing with your child!

We offer classes Monday – Saturday mornings with our KinderGym coaching team and a free trial is available for new members to come along a test out a class before signing up for the term.

We strive to make Western Districts Kinder Program a multi-movement based program designed specifically for children 5yrs and under and their caregiver.

The program promotes the development of the whole child – physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively, in a safe, structured, multi-sensory environment, indoors.

Learning through play in a stimulating, non-competitive environment assists children to develop to their full potential in readiness for kindergarten, school and sports.

Each session is directed towards empowering your child with the skills and confidence to hang, swing, spin, balance, skip, climb, throw, crawl and jump. It helps to provide the foundations for a lifetime of positive attitudes towards physical activity. While having fun, children learn to move and move to learn.

Parents/carers play a pivotal role in a child’s experience at our Kinder program as they get to share the child’s fun and achievements and support them as they learn through play. While we encourage our Kinder Fun classes to become independent we would like Parent/carer to be close by if assistance is needed as some weeks our circuits need more assistance than other weeks.

Just a reminder that our 10min free play at the start of each class must be supervised by the Childs parent/carer. The free play is a special time that you get to explore the gym with your child and get to see what equipment we have have out for the day, we feel that for some children it helps them settle into the class.

We would also like to remind parents/carer that we would prefer that there is no eating/drinking in the gym except water.

Please feel free to come and have a chat (3369 8843) or email (beth@wdgymnastics.com.au) if you have any feedback/questions about our Kinder program.

Our enrolment page is here – Kindergym Enrolments – there is also a class schedule on the page with class times. If you wish to see what weeks our Gymnastics classes run please check out our Calendar Page.

KinderTots (45min class / Walking to 3 years of age)

KinderTots is designed for children that are walking through to 3 years of age. Parent participation is required at this level so you can experience the fun of gymnastics with your little one! KinderTots is designed to encourage children to develop emotionally, socially, cognitively and physically in a safe and exciting environment.

KinderKids (60min class / 3-4 years of age)

KinderKids is a circuit-based program that develops strength, coordination, flexibility, motor skills and confidence which are all essential for a child’s holistic development. This age based program progresses skills each week and includes balancing, rolling, bouncing, swinging and twisting in a safe and fun environment, lead by our qualified coaching team. Theme weeks are included each term – adding variety and fun to all involved!

KinderFun (60min class / 4+ years of age – attending prep next year)

KinderFun is an extension of our KinderKids program for those that have previously participated in the KinderKids program. Our KinderFun children are often at an age where they want to assert their independence but also want to know that their parent/caregiver is not far away. In this one-hour weekly class parents are required to be on hand should their child need them, but do not need to take part in the class otherwise. KinderFun classes encourage the children to be active listeners and learners on their own. The slightly more structured environment fosters the children’s ability to take directions from the coach whilst still provide an opportunity for children to grow, share, take turns, set goals and take risks within a fun and safe environment. Children develop at their own level with new successes and achievements every week within a learn through play based program.
