GYM JUNIORZ

At British Orchard Nursery, we believe that every part of your child’s development is important, including his or her physical development. That is why we created GymJuniorz. This program includes an extensive gym and fitness plan to engage your child in varied physical activities, designed to improve their strength, flexibility, speed, balance, coordination, power, body awareness and discipline.In addition to these skills, children also learn social skills, communication, listening, self-confidence and teamwork.

We follow the understanding that ‘every child is unique’, therefore all children learn and develop at difference stages, which is taken into consideration at GymJuniorz. This is reflected in the activities showcased throughout the sessions, varying in difficulty and skill.

We believe it is important to allow children plenty of freedom to explore and challenge themselves mentally and physically in a task. All children will be accepted and recognized as making their own unique contribution. We want to see every child enjoying our classes and improving their health and skills through physical activity.
