Our Pre-school Programme starts at 9 months with Parent & Toddler classes. Around age 3 the gymnasts move into an independent class. The programme is centred around the fundamentals of movement. Children learn to balance, roll, swing, jump, turn, climb.. ….all in a safe environment with qualified coaches. The session is delivered as a structured class using music and action songs, hand apparatus and large specialist gymnastics equipment such as beams, trampette and bars. The programme leads onto all sports, teaching the basic skills required for physical development – motor skills, co-ordination, strength, posture, discipline ….and it’s fun!

WHAT TO WEAR – Children should wear comfortable clothing, shorts or leggings and t-shirt are best, with bare feet and jewellery removed. We have an optional pre-school t’shirt which can be ordered from our supplier, Mick Mick designs here.

SESSION COSTS – £6.84 per session / £28.50 monthly subscription
You will be given the option for pay for a 1 week trial before committing to a monthly subscription. All Astro members pay a £10 membership fee on joining and thereafter on the 1st of August each year and must register with Scottish Gymnastics here by their third week, at a cost of £16.

ON ARRIVAL – please come straight into the waiting room where a coach will collect the class at the start time. Children will be brought back to the waiting room after class.
