Cartwheels are a mobile pre-school gymnastic and physical education organisation, who currently run gymnastic classes in Nurseries and Pre-school establishments. We have been established since 1995 and are currently operating in Nurseries in Harrow, Brent, Hillingdon and Hertfordshire.
We believe that physical fitness and wellbeing is paramount in today's health conscious society. Knowing that the general fitness of children attending your school will be of importance to you our aim is to extend the curriculum of Nurseries, Kindergartens and Playgroups by enhancing both the mental and physical awareness of the children in your care.
Cartwheels provide fully qualified BRITISH GYMNASTICS PRE-SCHOOL COACHES all of whom are members of the National Coaching Foundation. We offer a variety of challenging activities, a safe environment and the use of first class equipment & apparatus.
Our aims and objectives are to promote health and fitness whilst implementing a fun and educational lesson. The classes include a musical activity such as a “shape game” to increase body temperature, a dexterity skill such as “hoops or quoits”, gymnastic skills on a themed basis and finally a “cool down” game to bring the children back to a relaxed manner.
Although the classes consist of group activities the children are encouraged to reach their own potential.
