Mini Movers

Our popular preschool class, Mini Movers, is suitable for 0-5 year olds! The sessions run at Brinnington Park Leisure Complex on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (Term time only)

The programme offers a unique Award Scheme leading to key stage 1 of the National Curriculum, following the guidelines of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Each level of award is tailored to individual stages of development.

Badge work is included in all Mini Movers sessions so that your child can work towards their award. As your child progresses through the award scheme they will acquire more advanced levels of movement and social skills. Achieving an award requires the completion of a variety of activities during the term. Upon successful completion of each award, a certificate and sew-on badge are available to purchase.

There are so many benefits from attendance of the sessions. The scheme promotes the concept of child led play, allowing the children to choose a variety of equipment each session with guidance from a parent/guardian or instructor.

The first session is FREE to new participants!

We are so happy to return to Mini Movers as it was greatly missed by the children and myself. In such a short time I have seen how much my little ones have grown in confidence. They are loving the new venue, there is lots of space to run around and explore and the children enjoy the social interaction and the skills they learn. What we see them achieve is amazing from climbing and exploring, to something as simple as sitting in a circle joining in with group activity. They are encouraged to learn about self control, how to use their body sensibly but also take safe risks in the controlled environment . My little ones are so excited when we pull into the carpark as they recognise where we are, the staff are all very friendly and helpful and the children absolutely love it so much they don’t want to leave.
