Age Groups (7).png

“Always remember you are unique just like everybody else.” 

We are all unique and children’s development is just the same.  Children develop at different rates both physically, mentally, and socially.  Height, weight, confidence, the ability to listen or follow instruction, and many other things develop and change at different rates and are unique to each individual.  This is particularly true when we compare girl’s maturation rates to boys.  We aim to work with each child and their own rates of development as much as possible.

Tots Classes

We currently have the following classes for

the Tots age group:

Tough Monkees for Tots

Tough Monkees for Teeny Tots

Unlike the rest of the regular classes for other age groups these are pay as you go classes and membership is not required to attend.  However, if you take out an annual Movement Bothy membership you will receive a discount on each class AND all the other benefits which come with  the membership.
