Give your child the best start in life!
AGDA’s Kindergym Krew Instructor’s ensure that each programs equipment set-ups are safe, stimulating and provide endless movement opportunities for your child to play and learn. Kindergym Krew programs assist in your child’s development, co-ordination and self-esteem.
AGDA’s Kindergym Krew Program is founded on child development principles and is focused on a steady advancement to our recreational gymnastics program Progressions To Purpose.
Commencing on our Baby Gym classes (4months to 18months) right through to pre-prep our Kindergym Program is designed to
provide a strong foundation for their critical early years. This period of your child's life will influence their movement abilities later.
The development areas the program focuses on are:
Fine Motor Skills
It promotes the child as the key focal point and involves active participation of the child’s mother, father or carer. When the child has reached the Joey's level of AGDA’s Kindergym we ask for the parents to progressively step back and allow the child to become accustomed to the Teacher/student dynamics. Thus helping with the transition to school.

Please note a new member registering into a program with payment will take priority over trialling members. So if you are booking in for a trial and that class is close to capacity be aware that you may be asked to reschedule to another time if that class becomes full (you will receive a phone call if this occurs). However you can secure your position by paying and booking into the program. When an Admin Angel calls you to confirm the booking please request this option to book and pay to secure your spot. If joining part way through a term AGDA will pro rata your fees from your starting date.

Kindergym Krew Syllabus
The Kindergym Krew syllabus is a step by step skill progression program aimed at teaching gymnastics skills at an age appropriate and skill level for each child. This syllabus is designed to be able to teach gymnastics skills correctly in a fun, stress free and challenging environment. Please speak to AGDA Administration on which program would be best suited for your child to experience a Trial.
As the Kindergym Krew is a parent involvement program and is also great in educating parents on how to spot their child on the equipment.
Please note: if you have younger children they will have to be supervised by another parent and/or guardian. Unfortunately, due to insurance and safety they cannot be on the floor during a class. Only enrolled members are covered by insurance. This is a mixed gender class with no more than eight children per coach. All Kindergym Krew gymnasts receive a T Shirt as part of their membership fee. Please encourage your child to wear this to training for safety and to help make all gymnasts feel part of the TEAM!
