TumbleTastics classes provide a huge range of benefits for physical and mental development. Here are the top 5 benefits that are sure to get you interested, and your toddler practically dressing themselves in excitement before each class.
1. Promotes health and fitness
Every child needs a healthy dose of exercise—and toddler gymnastics is a fun way to promote fitness. With varied routines and less pressure than a team sport, gymnastics lets children participate in a range of cardiovascular moves while building body strength and muscle development.
Toddler gymnastics is one of the only activities that works on many aspects of the body, including flexibility, strength and posture. TumbleTastics classes will gently allow your child’s body to become fit and flexible!
Most sports just involve ‘running, kicking and catching’, but gymnastics works on a range of activities to challenge your toddler, support their achievements, and move onto the next challenge. It gives them the opportunity to excel in a range of activities and always keeps them interested.
Whether your toddler continues on with gymnastics or gets involved in other sports later on, toddler gymnastics strengthens and tones their body while developing coordination and body awareness. This carries on and assists children in all other sports. It also encourages them to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle later in life.
2. Builds trust and respect
Participating in TumbleTastics toddler gymnastics classes provides lifelong skills, like listening and cooperation.
Toddlers will have the opportunity to build strong relationships with their teachers and other children in their group as they learn to trust, support and respect each other while following rules and taking turns—and, of course, having fun!
3. Improves coordination, motor skills and memory
In a TumbleTastics class, kids acquire a whole host of skills while tumbling and leaping from one apparatus to another.
The improvement of body coordination, as well as gross and fine motor skills, is a major benefit. Gymnastics for toddlers provides a gentle challenge in a safe environment with equipment and works a number of body areas.
As your child learns new routines, they’ll also gain a great sense of awareness of their own body and fine-tune their memories.
These benefits can be transferred to any number of other sporting activities. They can also improve classroom skills by boosting concentration and the ability to remember facts and figures.
4. Builds character
Toddler gymnastics is more fun than you’ll ever imagine. But kids also get a taste of what it’s like to commit to something and reap the rewards. It promotes a range of character-building traits such as determination, self-confidence and courage. Toddlers learn to make mistakes—and to get up and try again. These really are lifelong skills.
By encouraging the development of children’s skills and assisting them in setting and reaching new goals, TumbleTastics instils positive outlooks and enthusiasm in children.
Toddler gymnastics also allows toddlers to get out of their comfort zone. It promotes safe risk-taking and teaches kids to cooperate, take turns and follow instructions. Doing this has an effect on a toddler’s self confidence, self-esteem and overall wellbeing.
5. Encourages social interaction
If your toddler is yet to attend childcare or kindy, allowing them to socialise with kids their own age is priceless. It gives them the chance to communicate with others, work in partnerships and also as a team. You never know, they may even meet their next best friend!
Through our programming, your toddler will develop social skills that will give them a head start and prepare them for their school years. Making new friends and interacting with other children will be easy with their newfound confidence. Toddlers will learn how to work together as a team by cooperating to complete certain activities and participating in non-competitive games.
Gymnastics is one sport that kids can remain involved in as they grow up. It makes a fun hobby for little ones, and great long-term fitness strategy for older kids. The physical benefits are numerous and the network of friends they’ll acquire can be extremely beneficial.
