Take a look at what each class offers below!
18 Months - 2.5 Years Old
With our youngest group, our emphasis is put on developing gross motor skills and early cognitive skills through the introduction of games which will lead to helping the children discover and learn about the way their body moves.
Multiple sports will be introduced in Monkey Sprogs like football, basketball, tennis, athletics, throwing and catching! The Sprogs will start to discover the fundamental aspects of the different sports and start to discover a love for sport!
Working with their parent, children will grow in confidence and become comfortable in the format of the sessions and parents will see them flourish in front of their eyes. This will provide a platform from which the children can improve their attention and listening skills so that they can begin their preparation for nursery and school life.
