Parent/child classes – 12 x parent/child 4 to 6 years – 12 children maximum
Instructions will be given in both English and Finnish.
Suitable clothing for movement must be worn. The children MUST be barefoot. This enables them to have a better grip on the equipment and to feel the tactile surfaces. It also strengthens feet, improves body alignment and contribute to the building of neurological pathways in the brain. The feet are the most nerve-rich parts of the human body, which means  means we’re eliminating all kinds of opportunities for children’s brains to grow new neural connections.
If your child is having a birthday and would like to have a "Funky Monkey Party" or any other party do visit our MoovKids party page for further information. Visit the party page »

Darlene really enjoys working with the kids

My son has been participating in karate and gymnastics classes at Monkey Gym premises for the third year in a row. He is very pleased about the classes and the gym.

As a parent, I think the gym equipment and the general arrangements are excellent.

In addition to being a very competent trainer in karate and gymnastics, Sensei Darlene really enjoys working with the kids. She manages to make the lessons enjoyable for the kids, yet she is successful in achieving the goals and teaching them useful skills.
