Classes designed for children aged 2-3 and their parents.
This class is designed to encourage the development of your child's physical co-ordination, awareness of their environment, self-confidence and ability to work together with other people. Lessons are designed to be lots of fun and consist of a number of games and activities that aim to help such development. Our aim is to teach these core Cambridge Kung Fu values whilst instilling a love of being physically active that will last throughout their lives.
By encouraging such important life skills from an early age we feel that Cambridge Kung Fu Mini Monkeys will be better equipped to deal with challenges that may come along later in their lives.
The class is intended to involve both you and your child so you can expect a gentle workout as well! We believe that working out together is such a great way to engage with your child and gives you a great role-modelling opportunity by showing your child the importance of movement. Doing is so much more powerful than telling! Also, taking part in these activities with your child will add another dimension to your relationship with them as they grow and mature. By experiencing the class with them, not only will you be a part of their development in the class, but you will also be able to take home elements of the class and encourage their development at home.
in the class, you and your child will be treated as a pair/single unit
so when the children do something you will do it also; in this way
their learning is encouraged and reinforced by your example. This also
means that when praise and reprimands are given you will be treated in
the same way as your child to ensure that they feel the lesson is fair.
Most importantly the classes will allow you to play together, have fun
together and share the learning experience.
Mini Monkeys runs during term time only and each class has a maximum of 10 pairs (child and parent).
Mini Monkeys is designed to prepare children for our Tiny Tigers classes. Parents do not participate in the Tiny Tigers classes.
