Title: Above and Beyond Gymnastics and Sport

I'm thinking of sending my little dynamo of a daughter for some gymnastics classes. She may only be 2+, but when she wins all her fights with my 8yo son. She's the nighmare of all our babysitters and maids - your eyes leave her for a moment and she's clamboring up the gate in our PES the very next second.

I can across http://www.abgymsport.com/?page_id=80. Wonder if anyone have tried them before.

Hi,
have you managed to enrol your daughter in any gym related classes?

No lah... tried shicida... they quoted some long wait time and must put deposit some more... and she's a bit too old for GDbaby... so she's only getting what she can from Kinderland.

looks interesting ...but I tot if they are already active and doing their own gymnastic, they will just pick up more climbing and swinging skills?

I put my son in the Tumbletots programme when he was 3yo, but did not try the RightStart kindy. I wasn't too impressed by the programme, as I thought 1hr session per week was too short to make any real impact. But if they do it everyday in the kindergarten, things might be different.

any recommendations for gym classes

Postby ganchong » Thu May 22, 2008 1:00 am

Hi all,

I am looking for a gym programme for my two sons, age 3 years and 21months old.

Does anyone have any feedback on the following gyms?

1. The little Gym at Forum Gallery, as read from the website, seems comprehensive in helping pre-schooler to achieve gross and fine motor skills
2. Sporty Joe at Turf City, looks more like the sort of fun kindergym for the young
3. Prime Gym at Toa Payoh, seems to be more competitive kind of gym trainings


I brought my 3 year old son to Brain Revolution to get assessed for his weakness and strengths in learnings. I am quite desparate as he was telling me that he do not like the montessori school he is attending. (BTW, he is attending Montessori For Children at Newton since this year)

Results showed that he need more trainings on gross motor and fine motor skills.The programme at the centre costs too much ( 1 hr = $120 ) so I am thinking of enrolling him in a gym which could help his motor skills.

I am very stressed cos all the other boys who went in the same batch as him are all happily settled in this school and only my son always reply with negative answers about the school, eg, not fun, not nice...
So wondering what is wrong with him, I thought that maybe this montessori school is abit "rigid" for him or he has learning difficulties in doing the montessori works so he is not enjoying the school. I do not wish to change school as this is the third school. Very headache to find school again.... :(

Anyone have any experiences with any one of the above gyms?
