Ac­tive learn­ing keeps kids mov­ing

Highfields' Own - - Children's Collective -

Chil­dren have a nat­u­ral urge to climb, hang, swing, jump, run, roll and bal­ance that needs to be nur­tured in or­der to stim­u­late mus­cle growth and brain de­vel­op­ment.

It’s there­fore vi­tal as par­ents to sup­port this nat­u­ral ac­tiv­ity in a safe en­vi­ron­ment to en­sure chil­dren de­velop to their full po­ten­tial, and there’s no bet­ter way to do this than by join­ing gym­nas­tics.

Gym­nas­tics is a chal­leng­ing, mul­ti­dis­ci­plined and safe sport cater­ing to chil­dren of all ages and abil­i­ties.

It pro­vides a com­plete foun­da­tion for all sport, pre­par­ing chil­dren in whole body move­ment, con­trol and co-or­di­na­tion, as well as fine mo­tor skills, con­cep­tual, sen­sory and rhyth­mic de­vel­op­ment.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing in a gym­nas­tics pro­gram in­creases core strength, bal­ance, spa­tial aware­ness, and the abil­ity to land and in­jury pre­ven­tion.

It can also boost your child’s self-es­teem, and in ad­di­tion to the phys­i­cal well­be­ing ben­e­fits, stud­ies show strong links be­tween whole body move­ment, emo­tional sta­bil­ity and brain de­vel­op­ment, es­pe­cially in the early years of life.

Gym­nas­tics teaches life skills such as set­ting goals and reach­ing them.

Pro­grams at All­star Gym­nas­tics cater for gym­nasts of all ages and abil­i­ties, and pro­vide for an easy tran­si­tion from one pro­gram to another.

These pro­grams are de­signed to foster the de­vel­op­ing needs of the whole child while sup­port­ing their self­con­fi­dence.

All­star Gym­nas­tics has been rep­re­sented at regional, state, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional lev­els, and with friendly, fully trained coaches on hand, it is a fun and pos­i­tive way to in­clude your child in an ac­tive life­style that ben­e­fits their con­tin­ual de­vel­op­men­tal needs.
