Esprit Kids - where EVERY child is a champion!
Courtney Hows, the owner of Esprit Kids, has developed a brand new type of gymnastics centre, that focuses on teaching skills that will stay with a child throughout their life. Courtney, herself a high level gymnast and coach explains, "we simply teach the sport we love to every child, no matter what their innate abilities may be. Every child is unique and they all progress at their own pace. So, if you teach them well and make sure it’s fun, there is no telling what they can go on to achieve, they just need to to be nurtured in a safe, happy, fun environment”.
In our intimate, colourful environment we put just as much effort put into the comfort of you the parent as we do the children. There’s free tea and ‘proper’ coffee available, as well as WiFi and an impressive viewing area, which allows parents to comfortably watch their offspring perform or catch up on some work".
Classes available include:
Baby Gym - designed for parents and their new borns, from 4 to 20 months. From the very earliest age, Our classes start to build a critical foundation for your child’s future development. Not just in gymnastics either, our programme gives children the tools to help them throughout their life. Starting with their fine motor skills and simple things such as colour recognition, we help them develop independence, language development, muscle control and self-confidence, among many other things. Esprit’s Baby Gym will also ensure you are there to be part of building a strong foundation for their early years development.
Pre-school gymnastics - 18 months to 4 years. These classes are so much more than forward rolls and cartwheels; it helps your child become more self-assured, confident and happy in their early years. Our programme is split into two stages (with parent and eventually without them), they are designed to prepare children, at their own pace, for after-school gymnastics classes. All sessions start with a fun warm-up, followed by circuits on our specially designed gymnastics equipment. Our qualified coaches work side-by-side with your little monkeys to improve their opportunities for a future of fun and fitness.
Early years gymnastics - 4 to 12 years. Gymnastics is a sport that builds so much more than fitness and flexibility; it helps children develop the skills they need to succeed in life. In our fun, energetic classes, the gymnasts demonstrate progressive improvements, and your child will have their own achievement book, which is their record of an amazing gymnastic journey. A skill mastered and ticked off is something to be proud of, and throughout each 10-week term, the new skills mastered enable your gymnast to earn badges and certificates for their fantastic achievements.
