Tumblebears is the follow on gym program from PIT A PATS, and caters for children who attend 4 year old Pre-school. Children of this age group are ready for more formal independent learning and therefore, parents do not have to participate in this class.

​Tumblebears often run concurrently, but separate to Pit-a-Pats, uses the same fun equipment and themes, but has a different emphasis.

​Boys and girls in the Tumblebears class are offered a more structured and formal lesson which aims to improve fine and gross motor co-ordination, in readiness for entry into the prep year at school.

​The class involves:

  • Gross motor skills such as swinging, springing, rocking, rolling, jumping and landing
  • Small motor skills
  • Basic gymnastic skill progression for forward rolls, handstands and cartwheels
  • Fun and interest gymnastics activities

The benefits are:

  • Balance
  • Motor co-ordination
  • Strength
  • Locomotion
  • Self Confidence
