We are physical play, sensory and music rolled into one… At Mini Monkey Gym we have unique soft obstacle courses to explore which support a weekly movement theme and physical skill. Mini monkeys enjoy jumping off blocks, balancing on beams, crawling through tunnels, rolling down slopes and sliding! We use different sensory and musical props each week to compliment the movement theme such as, ribbons, beanbags, hula hoops, scarves, maracas and bells.

Mini Monkey Gym classes follow the same structure each week. This promotes recognition for your child and builds their confidence to join in with the circle time activities, songs and parachute play. Our circle times are full of fun active songs and rhymes, utilising sensory and musical props. These engage your child and develop their language skills, sense of rhythm and movement. Our sensory movement activities encourage exploration, creativity and self awareness.

Our classes are very relaxed and friendly so children join in when they are ready and are free to explore in their own way! Our classes are fun and social; offering parents a wonderful opportunity for special one-on-one time with their child and a chance to meet other like-minded families. Classes are £7 each, paid termly
