The Benefits of Gymnastics for Pre-Schoolers at Wickers Gymnastics Club

As parents, we all want to give our children the best start in life, and introducing them to gymnastics at a young age can be a fantastic way to boost their early development. At Wickers Gymnastics Club, we offer a specialised pre-school gymnastics program designed to engage babies to school age, tapping into the critical early years to foster physical, social, and cognitive development.

Why Choose Gymnastics for Your Pre-Schooler?


1. Physical Development

From the moment they begin, young gymnasts at Wickers are encouraged to explore a range of movements which help to develop their motor skills. Regular participation in gymnastics can improve strength, flexibility, and coordination, which are essential not just in sports but in everyday activities. For instance, the simple act of balancing on a beam can enhance their physical skills, such as coordination and balance, which are crucial during these formative years.


2. Cognitive Skills

Gymnastics also challenges children to think as they move. At Wickers, our sessions are designed to keep young minds engaged by requiring them to follow instructions, remember sequences of movement, and understand spatial awareness. This kind of mental workout is perfect for developing attention span, memory, and problem-solving skills.


3. Social Interaction

One of the less discussed but equally important benefits of pre-school gymnastics is the social interaction it offers. Children learn to take turns, share attention, and support each other. At Wickers, we create a supportive environment where children not only learn from their coaches but also from their peers, which enhances their social and emotional development.


4. Confidence and Enjoyment

Beyond the physical and cognitive benefits, gymnastics can be a tremendous source of joy for children. It gives them an environment where they can express themselves freely, learn new skills, and accomplish tasks that boost their confidence and self-esteem. At Wickers, seeing a child's face light up when they master a new move is one of our greatest rewards.
