Suitable clothing for movement must be worn. The children should 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 contributes to the building of neurological pathways in the brain. The feet are the most nerve-rich parts of the human body, which means if they are not barefoot we’re eliminating the opportunity for neural connections to develop in the brain. Children's brains benefit form every sensory experience.
We do fun supervised birthday parties for young children. Led by Darlene Koskinen, your children will do a wide variety of fun creative activities that will keep them engaged, enjoying, and benefitting. PParties are possible for children ages 2 to 7 years.

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.
