To support growing minds, movement and keeping active is essential! With direct access to the Gymfinity Kids state-of-the-art gym, we combine our learning programme with our activity classes. Each age group gets 1 hour of structured gymnastics activities led by qualified gymnastics coach who specialises in pre-school. Our pre-school gymnastics classes are broken down into 2 groups, age 2-3 years and 3-5 years. Each group will have 1 hour in the gym each day split into two half-an-hour sessions, one half an hour in the morning and one-half hour afternoon. Gymfinity Kids Pre School Award Scheme The nursery children will all work towards the Gymfinity Kids Pre School Award Scheme which goes from level 1 – 5. This focuses on the development of coordination and locomotor skills, action skills, balance and weight bearing.
All nursery children will have the opportunity to use all our equipment including:
Using this equipment will help the children learn and develop several different skills including:

Movement Week is an opportunity to celebrate every child’s development through the Gymfinity Kids preschool award scheme. Parents are invited to come along and watch the presentation to see their child receive awards and certificates.
The event takes place every 3 months, giving children the chance to showcase the new skills they’ve been learning in daily exercise classes using our onsite-gym facilities.
We’re all about making learning and development fun as well as active! Find out more about Gymfinity Kids and the specialist Preschool Programme here.
*Due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to host Nursery Movement Weeks at this point in time, however parents will be updated on their child’s progress via the ParentZone app as well as during virtual parent’s evenings.
This programme combines music, movement and sensory stimulation. Each session is designed to help develop your baby’s sensory awareness, mobility, strength and balance.
This programme is an outstanding springboard for developing the skills and behaviours that enable children to be successful and set them up for life. Following Directions Getting our little ones to ‘stop’ and listen without being distracted is often testing! We help create many circumstances where listening, learning and following direction can be taught and absorbed. Discipline Our structured preschool classes help to underpin rules and regulations while still being exciting and motivational. Discipline isn’t just about rules and regulations but also about how those rules enable children to navigate their environment. Strength, Fitness and Motor Skills Childhood obesity is becoming more and more troublesome. Gymnastics is one of the most comprehensive lifestyle exercise which develops strength, flexibility, speed, power, balance, and coordination. Plus, it’s fun to do! Gymnastics and ninja will develop positive feelings associated with sport and fitness that can last a lifetime! Emotional and Social Confidence, overcoming fear, and new experiences are an important part of life! Whether it’s learning a forward roll or speaking in front of class – this programme helps associate new experiences in a positive way. At Nurseries by Gymfinity Kids, our “personal best” philosophy helps every child feel a sense of success and achievement. Co-operation, working with others and teamwork are also an important part of our programme.
The staff have been great and through her settling in sessions in September she has settled really well. I love seeing the photos they post on the parent app of what she has been up to in the day. She is always happy to go which is really reassuring.
My daughter shows me the gymnastics she has been learning when she comes home and I've also noticed that her speech and vocabulary have really improved since being there. All the staff are really welcoming and with the many questions I have asked are very knowledgeable.
My twin boys have absolutely LOVED settling in at the Nursery at Gymfinity Maidstone! The team have made the boys so welcome and they love telling me all about the gym work they have been doing and playing in the garden!
The staff have all been exceptional especially during lockdown when both my partner and myself still had to work, they kept the nursery open for her without question. Our daughter always feels happy and safe to be left at the nursery which makes it a little bit easier leaving her knowing that she is safe and content.
My son has been going to the nursery since he was 6 months old and from the first day, he felt like he was at home. Two months later he is getting better and better day by day. They are helping him with crawling, make his first steps and trying different types of food.
My son has started walking at only 10 months old due to the wonderful facilities available he has gained the confidence due to the soft gymnastic floors.
My little girl loves the very well maintained garden and I have extremely close bonds to all staff, they all know my children and their routines very well.
We started our little girl in August 2020 and she has loved every moment to date. The facilities at the venue are amazing, lots of interactive toys, stimulating activities and safe places to play, explore, learn and have fun. In addition to the nursery space, the children have full access to the fully equipped gym floor, with daily sessions facilitated by qualified gym
