Baby Class PooleMini Monkey Gym structured developmental classes offer an interactive, physical play and musical sensory experience that benefits your child’s all-round development. With 4 stages from Newborn to 5 years old there is a perfect class for you and your ‘Mini Monkey’!

At Mini Monkey Gym we have unique soft obstacle courses to explore, which supports a weekly movement theme and physical skills. Mini monkeys enjoy learning to climb, jumping off blocks, balancing, 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 PooleMini 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.

We would love for you to join our wonderful community; With one subscription membership per family, it gives your Mini Monkeys access to unlimited classes every week plus our Christmas party, Easter Party, Summer Picnics and games, Mini Monkey Olympics, Themed classes each term, Family meets and a variety of activities within our FB community group including activity ideas, story times and songs.
