Programs and Ages
Jumping Joeys’ classes are tailored to suit the development levels of different age groups. Activities are programmed based on the science of Fundamental Movement Skills. Equipment has been specifically designed for young children.
Our class age groupings are as follows:
- 1 (walking steadily) to 2.5 years
- 1.5 to 3 years
- 2.5 to 4 years
- 3.5 to 5 years
Please note that these age groups are a guide and flexibility is encouraged based on each child’s individual development.
Parents or caregivers participate in classes to assist their children. The level of parental assistance required decreases as the child’s age and skill levels increase.
Classes at Jumping Joeys begin with a welcome and warm-up, then we move onto the gymnastics and activity circuit. The circuit changes from week to week and includes the following:
- Jumping and hopping
- Throwing and catching
- Hand eye coordination activities
Following circuit time children move to the mat area and participate in group activities led by our qualified instructors. Activities target skill development in the following areas:
- Hand-eye coordination
- Rhythm and singing
- Body part recognition and isolated movement
