Mac the Monkey Classes

Mac’s classes start from 6 weeks old and run until children are in approximately 5 years old.

Our classes from 6 weeks – 3 years old are Parent/Guardian and Child classes – adults can take part in the adventures each week alongside their child.

Our classes from 3–5 years old are parent/guardian free. We call these Independent Child classes because the main aim of these classes is to encourage each child to build up their confidence and learn independently.

In all of Mac’s classes children learn to listen, share, take instruction and make new friends.  We have 4 styles of classes to choose from below.

Little Performers Musical Theatre

Suitable for children at Pre–School – walking to 5 years old. 

These classes provide an all-round education in Dance, Drama and Music. In today’s world all these performing arts areas are interlinked and we have found that when young children are exposed to structured classes at an early age their confidence flourishes and social and learning skills develop quickly providing a great start to their school life. These classes enhance social, lingual, physical and rhythmical skills and with Mac’s adventures each week your child’s imagination will have no boundaries.

At Pre–School level we run 2 levels of class: 18mths – 3years which has Parent/guardian participation which allows the child to develop with the comfort of a parent/guardian there.  3–5 years which is parent/guardian free to allow the children to develop independently.

 

 

 

 

Gymnastics and Sports 

Suitable for children at Pre–School – walking to 5 years old.

Through Mac’s weekly adventure your child will learn the basics in Gymnastics and valuable skills that can be used in all sports. For example hand eye coordination, balance, agility, strength and flexibility will all be gradually built upon and improved. Alongside teaching basic vital sporting skills your child will learn the importance of physical fitness, a healthy lifestyle and develop a zest for sport which we hope will last through until their adult life. 

At Pre–School Level we run 2 levels of class: walking–3years which has Parent/Guardian participation so that the children progress with the comfort of a parent/guardian there and our 3-5 years which is parent/guardian free to allow the children to develop independently.

These classes provide a taster in Dance, Drama and Music.  Through a different adventure each week you can work with your child on developing their senses through our range of class activities as you  join in Mac’s story!  There has been lots of research that shows just how important early years classes are when babies can be exposed to Music, Sounds, Speech and Song. 

Over time these classes develop social, lingual, physical and rhythmical skills and with Mac’s adventures each week stretch the imagination. Be prepared to Sing, Dance, Act, play musical instruments and much more… Its a great class to spend quality time with your baby.

Once children have started to walk they will be ready to move onto to our other styles of classes.
