Jolly Gym is a gross motor program designed for preschool children. Our aim is to provide fun filled sessions that help to develop basic locomotion, co-ordination and balance skills. The program incorporates three main components;
- Flexibility activities that encourage children to bend and stretch
- Strength building activities to help build strong muscles and bones
- Endurance activities that assist in strengthening the heart and lungs
Making physical activity a part of each day is fun and healthy. Encouraging preschoolers to play actively everyday helps create a healthy lifestyle.
What do I need to bring?
All children attending Jolly Gym sessions will need:
- Water bottle
- Medications e.g. asthma
(please let us know if your child does require any medication).
Jolly Gym will commence Week 4, Term 3, 2016 . It will run on either a Tuesday or Thursday at 2:00pm. Please register your child at the school’s front office. A letter will then be posted to you with a selected starting date and time. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
