Advantages Develops children's co-ordination, balance & agility
Disadvantages Not cheap
Want to tire your little ones out, give them exercise and develop co-ordination? Then it's time to consider Tumble Tots.*** A LITTLE HISTORY LESSON ***
The Tumble Tots program is specifically designed to develop children's agility, balance, co-ordination and climbing through use of brightly coloured equipment and structured sessions. The sessions also aim to develop positive personality traits such as self-esteem and confidence. If you visit their website, you will find lots of quotes from child psychologists and educators stating the benefits of such a program.*** MY OPINION BEFORE GOING ***
Gymbabes is for babies of 6 months until walking.Tumble Tots have three different classes: walking to two, two to three and three to school age.
Gymbobs is for school age to 7.Once you've had your trial session, you are required to become a member of the National Tumble Tots club which costs £19 for the 1st child/year and £17.50 for renewals as well as siblings. I thought this was a bit of a con at first but it's quite good value for money as you get a CD, DVD, t-shirt (of your chosen size), magazine subscripton, gym bag and other little goodies. On top of that you get a booklet oozing with money-off vouchers for everything from nappywipes to holidays. On top of that, the main reason for joining is that it is your year insurance cover for attending!
Currently, the fee is £4.20 per session and you pay for a half-term in advance. The program coincides with the school terms. If you miss a session, you cannot get a refund but can have an extra catch-up session.There are qualified staff and leaders there but you are required to be with your child until they are 3 and then they are encourage to be more independent although you are still required to be nearby.
