He had an awesome time and his friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves too. Ellie and Aleysha were absolutely brilliant and the two hours went so fast. All the children enjoyed themselves from the oldest (13) to the youngest (2). There was so much fun and laughter, we could just sit back and watch all the children have a wonderful time.Thank you so much for a fantastic, brilliant, amazing, memorable, relaxing, tremendous, totally epic birthday party. Dylan often talks about all the fun and all his friends had at his party.It brought back many happy memories from when Grace had her 5th birthday party with you all those years ago!! It is still just as brilliant.Thank you again.Best wishes Jack xxxx
Latest investment will help all our current and future members to continue to develop during unique weekly Child Development Sessions.Our new equipment will also help to encourage more boys to join our club and enjoy the benefits of being part of our Balance & Beam family as we introduce some functional fitness sessions into our classes. We are aware that too much time in front of screens and a sedentary lifestyle is taking its toll on our children’s wellbeing. This is why our aim at Balance & Beam has always been to introduce as many children as possible to live a healthy life through regular fun exercise and help to challenge them to meet their own personal little milestones . We have seen thousands of children and their families gain so much from our programme over the last 13 years and believe our continued investment will help us to continue to help local children “ Cartwheel into a Happy, Healthy life”.Our professionally designed programme is based on motor skill learning and imagination which helps build confidence in all children during our non-competitive gymnastic based classes and works on all areas of a child’s development to improve motor skills, language and social skills.Sessions are always fun but we have a serious mission to work with parents and carers to help develop sociable, confident and active children who are well equipped to deal with the challenges that modern day living presents to everyone including our children and who will then go on to become sociable confident and active young adults.With classes suitable for children from just 4 months through to 12 years, we are giving all children plenty of opportunity to be active and healthy. Small pupil/teacher ratios mean all our members build great relationships with our instructors, who focus on ensuring every child, irrelevant of their ability is always given their time to shine.We always praise the smallest of achievements because we understand that a small achievement for one child can be a massive one for another.We invite all potential members to attend a free trial session which enables both child and parents to see first-hand how much fun our programme is.

All you need to know is listed belowCamps will run on Tuesday 28th to Friday 31st May and are open to both members and non-members.Every day is different which means everyone ALWAYS has lots of fun and we never hear those famous words "I’m bored" at our camps!AM CAMP 9.30am-12.30pmEach camp starts with a 1 hour 15 minutes gym session which is fully instructor lead. Group activities give all the children time to settle in and get acquainted. We then have group games and lots of fun time to try out our full size gymnastic equipment in our purpose built, bright & colourful gym. After all the fun, it’s on into our party room for 45 minutes to recharge batteries with a freshly prepared healthy snack which typically consists of buttered toast, crumpets, bagels and toasted tea-cakes and fresh fruit served with either water or juice. (Food allergies are catered for on request)All the children then get involved in a themed craft activity which will be so fantastic it will get pride of place on your fridge at home.Then it’s back into the gym for another hour of instructor led gym fun and games.So that’s our action packed morning camp. ( If you are collecting your little ones at lunch time be prepared for tears because they want to stop all day ! )LUNCH TIME 12.30 till 1.30.If children are staying with us all day we then have our lunch break . This is a supervised FREE hour where children go into our party room to eat their own packed lunch. Staff are on hand to open lunch boxes, crisp packets, yoghurts or anything else that is proving challenging for little hands. We can provide a Subway Kidspak with them being right next door to us (pre-order is essential on drop off and at an extra cost of £3.00)We then encourage children to take some quiet time to do a word search, read a book or do some colouring. This will always be fully supervised and is a great opportunity for children to make new friends.PM CAMP 1.30pm-4.30 Our afternoon session is based on the same timeframe as the morning but will be a totally different session to ensure everyone is stimulated and has lots of fun. Our afternoon snack is normally fresh fruit, raisins, a yogurt or jelly and some crisps with either water or juice.So that’s a typical day at one of our amazing camps. We guarantee your little people will leave Balance & Beam exhilarated, happy and probably shattered Each camp day is different, so if you need childcare for the full week then be assured they will get to meet lots of new friends each day; and explore different activities day in and day out.Our Camps Details Morning (9:30am - 12:30pm) Afternoon (1:30pm - 4:30pm) Both (9:30m - 4:30pm) Half Day £22 Full Day £44Early/Late PickupEarly Drop off (8:30am -9:30am) (+£3.00) Early Drop Lunchtime (12.30pm- 1.30pm) (+£3.00) Late Pick Up (4:30pm - 5:00pm) (+£3.00) Subway Lunch (+£3.00) Members Discount Code applies - You'll get your special code by emailTo book your camps Click Here
Hi! I’m Georgie and I’ve been attending Balance and Beam with my son Huw, since he was 4mths old. Over the last 2 years B&B has become a part of our family and a place where I’ve found the greatest confidence in my abilities as a first time mum. In recent months I have taken the leap to become an Independent Usborne Organiser and would like to make you aware of the opportunities I can offer.From First baby books, to activity books, to the latest fiction for all ages, I can provide something for everyone.If you wish to host a private event either for friends and family such as birthdays, baby showers or a pop up stall at your organisation or school, I can and will bring lots of enthusiasm to go with it. Let me know any specific requirements for your event be it Book Fair, Curriculum projects or PTA event, and I will be happy to tailor my stand to meet your needs. Most importantly, I will promote a real love of literacy and reading to everyone who attendsIf you’d like to order a book or know more about what I can do for you, please pick up a leaflet from inside the gym or drop me a line via my contact details below Facebook: Georgina Wardle, Independent Usborne OrganiserVisit my site: Georgie's Marvellous BooksContact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sterotypically, gymnastics has always been seen as a girls’ activity. A bit like football and rugby are ‘for boys’... But that’s just not so. More and more girls are getting into football and rugby and we need that stigma to change with respect to boys ‘getting into gymnastics’ too. We’ve seen the trends changing in adult gyms where 'cross fit' and 'functional fitness' are becoming extremely popular with the guys but you need a great foundation & core to be able to do the things they do. How cool is it to do back flips and somersaults and start that 6-pack early? And it’s not just the men who want them, women want them too.Getting fit and keeping healthy is all about having regular daily physical activities and more importantly doing something that you enjoy and that’s why WE are so much more than a gym class. Yes, we are learning how to do handstands and cartwheels and forward rolls etc., BUT we also tick all the boxes that youngsters need to gain a love of sport that will last through to adulthood:Physical FunSocialising with new friendsLearning how to turn takeLearning how to shareLearning that it’s OK NOT to be able to do something the first time...remember the old adage...if at first you don’t succeed....Being able to let off steam in a safe, fun, nurturing environment – it’s not easy being a child these daysLearn how to be safe risk taking....all the skills our children learn are transferable into their everyday lifeOur small class sizes held on a weekly basis are designed to develop everyone at their own pace with the main focus being FUN, FUN, FUN for every child. Our classes have a mix of both boys and girls which is fantastic for the social interaction and development of children. We also have male and female instructors at the gym as we believe that it is important for young children to have both male and female role models. Seeing both women and men working together is representative of how great communities live and work together.By Introducing children to a gymnastics class you are helping them in all areas of their development.Top 10 Health Benefits of being a gymnastContact us NOW to book your free taster session!.Could you have a future Gymnastic STAR in your household?Here at Balance & Beam we truly believe our Gymnastic based Child Development Programme can help all children, irrelevant of their ability to be the very best they can be. The recent Gymnastic World Cup Event held in Birmingham is a fantastic example of what can be achieved through hard work and commitment. Developing this positive mind-set helps children to succeed in all walks of the lives both now and in the future. https://www.british-gymnastics.org/gymnast-profiles/378540/joe-fraser

“I just wanted to send in a testimonial for Setta for the Sunday advanced class. She does a superb job of the class every week and makes a big effort to give them a fully rounded gymnastics class - giving all the class their own routine is the icing of that cake. What I wanted to point out was how she is genuinely engaged with the kids to the point where it is clear how happy the children learning and improving makes her. It's lovely to see and I'm glad that my daughter gets such a pleasant, capable and committed coach each week. Rob, Dad to Emmy S (Aged 9 years) ”
“I've been coming to camps for 5 years and love spending time in the gym. My little sister Phoebe comes with me now so we have even more fun together”
“My daughter Freya regularly attends camps in the school holidays. She really enjoys the wide range of activities. The camps feature time in the gym as well as some fun crafty time. As a parent I know that I am leaving Freya in a safe, supportive and engaging learning environment and when she is picked up she is already looking forward to her next camp”
“Just a quick note to say how great I thought the class was last night - a whole world away from the last gymnastics class he did. Really good fun and a great variety of activities - I was amazed that he was doing the running/jumping forward rolls after a couple of attempts. He also really enjoyed it - he's not normally the most enthusiastic but he was talking about it all the way home after class and telling his friends the following morning on the walk in to school ”
“What a wonderful 1st birthday party we had today, thank you so much for making it a very special day for our little boy. All the parents & children had a great interactive session and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lucie & Mike, mummy & daddy to Dexter”
“For me balance and beam is now one of four core elements of care / socialisation for a toddler in their early stages. Exercise, strength and learning things in a class environment & out school clubs all obvious extra bonuses.”
“Would like to say a HUGE thank you for Macy's birthday party on Sunday, Mel and Ellie are a credit to Balance & Beam, so welcoming and organised, and generally lovely girls, really kept the children engaged, all the children had a lovely time and were asking their parents if they could come again, all the parents were impressed how lovely the gym was and just how fab the instructors were. Macy loved every minute, best party ever, so thank you again, especially to your lovely girls Mel and Ellie xx”
“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for the best ever party. I didn't have to do anything at all, it was so stress free and the girls in the gym were amazing. We'll certainly be back next year”
“I just wanted to email you and say a huge THANK YOU.- For listening to mine and my daughter’s concerns and for suggesting ways to help, and WOW did it help. To see her little face in class and others too, smiling and laughing & enjoying what they were doing. As her Mum I knew I needed to and trusted you enough to be able to talk to you. You proved me right, by listening, taking on board my concerns and changing things slightly to help my daughter I know to each and every parent, their child is special and they are the only thing that matters at that point, whereas you have hundreds of children to think of. Again, you embrace each and every child and this is unique and special. A well-deserved thank you and I’m proud to be part of the Balance & Beam Family”
“This was one of the most relaxing parties I’ve had. From a parent’s viewpoint, it's such a simple party to organise....and from the party girl’s viewpoint.....'epic party again Mum, even better than last year’s!”
“Thanks so much for making our birthday party so much fun yet again. This was Mollie's 4th Birthday party here and again all the staff were wonderful. Thanks so much to Yvonne & the team!!”
“Just a quick note to say thank you for all that you do at balance & beam, Thanks for the lovely bond you’ve all built with K & us as a family, For the time & effort you put into developing your children through the well thought out themes which you explain thoroughly in class, Keeping the Facebook page fun & exciting with birthdays & star of the week, The end of term certificates that we keep & the stickers you give which mostly get squashed or chewed but are very welcome, For your newsletters so we know exactly what’s happening & for all the other activities you make possible that we’ll look forward to joining in with as K grows, I can’t wait to have a birthday party with you! Thanks for always being so caring & asking how we are & for being so accommodating with our classes on weeks when K hasn’t been too well over the winter, Your skills at knowing how to safely encourage our little girl when she was just 4 months old & started coming to class have been so enriching for her, We’re very proud to be a part of balance & beam, thanks for facilitating such a fabulous skill locally, “Thank you ladybirds” ”
