Richmond Romper Programme

Richmond Romper pre-school programme (8 weeks to 5 years)

Our Pre-School gymnastic classes run Monday to Friday during school hours.

We encourage all our pre-school gymnasts to learn early balance, co-ordination and gymnastics skills through a variety of fun activities each week. The programme is structured and focuses on basic motor skills, spatial awareness, strength and agility in a stimulating purpose-built gym using specialist equipment.

We also integrate children with special needs into our pre-school programme and ensure there is a fully qualified disabilities coach to support if necessary.
