Integrating physical activity in children’s lives is essential for creating a foundation of movement and activity that they will carry with them throughout the rest of their lives.
Our public classes allow parents and caregivers to see and/or participate in their child’s development first hand. Our classes are held throughout the day and in a variety of environments including local community centres, Monkeynastix venues, dance studios etc.
Babynastix – 1 to 2 years
Enjoy a fun packed Monkeynastix lesson with your little one with a variety of safe activities and music!
Starting to develop children’s fundamental movement skills each class includes a fun Babynastix song, stretching positions and locomotion. Each week a circuit is set out with particular themes such as balance, jumping, etc, where children explore different stations. Following the main activity children then participate in a fine motor activity. Participants are then introduced to manipulative skills such as throwing, kicking and catching. Each lesson ends with a fun closing song and a Monkeynastix sticker handout. New equipment and lessons are introduced weekly.
Full adult participation required. One adult per child. Note: children must be walking independently.
Tremendous Toddlers – 2 to 3 years
Help your child develop remarkable self conﬁdence through the individual success they achieve in our program using our specialized equipment!
Each class begins with a fun Monkeynastix song, stretching positions, and locomotion. Children then participate in a circuit featuring a main activity with complementary substations focusing on a particular theme such as balance, strength, ﬂoor skills, cardio, speed and agility etc. Children then take part in a fine motor activity. Participants are introduced to sport skills such as kicking, catching and throwing. We end our energy packed lesson with a fun closing song and children receive a Monkeynastix sticker. Children leave Monkeynastix feeling happy, conﬁdent and energized!

Playful Preschoolers – 3 to 6 years
Our 3-6 year old members will strive to develop their fundamental movement skills such as running, hopping, skipping. jumping, throwing, catching, kicking, etc.
Each class begins with a warm up which includes a fun energetic Monkeynastix song, stretching positions, and locomotion. Children then participate in a main activity circuit with sub stations focusing on a particular theme such as balance, strength, floor skills, cardio, speed and agility etc. Following the main activity, participants are introduced to sport skills such as kicking, catching and throwing.

School Age – 6 to 12 years
Monkeynastix helps develop fundamental movement skills that children need to play sports successfully.
Each class includes stretching, cardio, strength and a focus on one fundamental sports skill. Children practice their fundamental skills in well-structured drills and games with minimal focus on competition.
Our goal is to get children 6-12 years old “sport ready” and physically literate so they stay active for life!
