At GymbaROO, our classes are named after Australian animals, and their name matches the locomotion skills of each age group.
Which animal is your child?
Wombats are our mobile babies. At the beginning of term, babies are at least 8 months of age. They may be moving backwards, or forwards on their tummies, or up on their hands and knees. This class is suitable until baby begins to walk independently. Most babies crawl and cruise around furniture at the same time for several months, so cruising babies should still be enrolled in a Wombats class.
These children are in the transition phase from crawling to being a confident walker. They need to be at least 11 months old at the beginning of term, cruising around furniture confidently and standing independently. As term progresses, so does the class as they transition from crawling to walking. This class is best suited to toddlers from 11-14 months at the beginning of term.
Possums are between 3 and 4 years of age. Lots of important neurological and developmental changes are taking place and due to their increased concentration and co-ordination, their class is one hour long so we can include lots of challenging activities. They are called possums because they enjoy hanging upside-down.
