Gymnastics is to sport what the alphabet is to reading. 

Gymnastics programs promotes and encourages the importance of children developing fundamental movement skills at a young age, encouraging them to develop health habits and a lifelong love of physical activity. 

The benefits of recreational gymnastics are enormous – children learn balance, correct posture, stability, how to use their body, all couched within a fun, safe, ‘play to learn’ environment. 
As teachers, you play a vital role in helping children explore and play with movement, helping them to understand their environment and their place within it.
