Term time classes
Give your child the best possible start in life.
At TARKA, we go beyond simply having ‘fun’. Our highly developmental and engaging exercise-based classes are proven to develop your child’s physical coordination, strength, and endurance, while also building courage, teamwork, social skills, and self-confidence.
Was your child born during the pandemic? These classes are perfect.
Join us for our Recruits classes: a jam-packed, fun-filled 45 minutes where your child will be exercising both their muscles and mind!
The games are specifically designed to challenge and develop this age group and are part of an active learning approach to focus on their physical and emotional skills, including fine and gross motor skills, hand eye coordination, problem solving, team-work and communication.
The children are introduced to new vocabulary, colour names and matching, number reognition and counting. Your child will be supported by our instructors to feel confident and self-assured, and we take the time to celebrate every achievement – no matter how big or small.
Whilst the theme of the class changes each week, the overarching structure itself remains the same. We feel this routine is essential for young children.
The Recruits class is a fantastic opportunity for your child to meet new friends and leave TARKA with a new host of role models.
Troopers is focused on learning through movement and exercise, developing their social, physical and emotional skills at an age-appropiate level.
Through our carefully designed syllabus, your child will be introduced to theme-specific vocabulary, as they travel though space, journey across the globe to visit far flung countries and saving populations from natural phenomena.
The children establish firm friendships with each other and they are encouraged to communicate with others and work in harmony to achieve shared goals.
Our instructors ensure that they strike a balance between being hands-on and helping the children, while also encouraging them to solve problems and complete challenges on their own terms.
Captains is the final step on the TARKA ladder.
These sessions are designed so that each child is challenged at an individual level. The classes remain themed, but your child’s physical and mental stamina is pushed further, and they are introduced to concepts such as endurance and competition.
The pace of this class is faster and your child is treated in a more mature manner. They are expected to take responsibility for their own actions and are encouraged to adhere to the rules which mirror their schools promoting good manners and respect to others.
We encourage all children in our Captains classes to notice the impact of how they feel during and after physical activity. Ensuring children are aware of the benefit of exercise from a young age is a central tenet of TARKA, and something we hope will continue to benefit them throughout their lives.
