Pre School

At ARGOS Gymnastics we are passionate about coaching Preschool, and we believe it's one of the best things your child can do for their development.

Research shows that kids learn best through play, discovering their limits and abilities during physical activity. Our Preschool classes provide a safe environment for children to develop physical skills in a fun way, at their own pace.

Your child will develop skills such as social interaction, listening to instructions, lining up and how to get along in a group environment. They will also learn the basics of gymnastics movement such as jumping, rolling, balancing, fine motor skills and much more.

*Plunket vouchers are no longer being accepted at ARGOS.

However, you can use at Te Puke Gymsports.
