Hi friends! I'm Hannah. After fifteen long years away from SG, I am so excited to be back! Growing up, I was extremely active and was involved in just about any sport, but my favourites have to be rugby and football!
I just completed my degree in Kinesiology, specialising in adapting sports to suit different ability levels as I am a big believer in creating an inclusive environment for all kiddos to enjoy. I consider myself an overgrown kid (who drinks too much coffee), which is why I have joined the Power Team!
Hey all. My job is to channel the inner jedi of the trainers so that they transform your children into super heroes ready to conquer the world with their agility, strength and silliness. I take my job very seriously to ensure that everyone has loads of fun – staff, children and families who come through our doors.
In my previous life, I was a headhunter and then made the transition of creating an indoor gym for my 3 children who were driving me to the edge of despair with their hyperactivity. They are all now adults but still continue to spin my head around.
I am a certified personal trainer (though these days, I certainly could do with spending more time in the gym) and have also completed the Level 1A Gymnastics Training Qualification. I also had the privilege of being trained in recreational Gymnastics in the US.
Our gliders are well on their way on building a strong foundation in developing their gross and fine motor skills through our structured activities and our free play time. Whether it is holding on to the bars for 15 seconds, climbing the rock wall or working on their upper body strength to do handstands, there is a whole range of activities to challenge them incrementally every week. In the process, they will also learn basic skills such as waiting in turns, sharing and also to interact with others in a positive way. It is all about building their confidence to explore the unknown.
Just as a pony trots and then slowly moves into a gallop our sassy Twos are on an exciting journey of discovering their abilities in an independent way. Though mums and dads are still around to guide them, they will be exposed to pre-gymnastics activities and various sports skills as well as strengthening their skills in manipulative play. The emphasis is on working on physical and social skills where they have to listen and follow directions. They will also be building their knowledge of numbers and letters which will help them with language and vocabulary development. Whether it is through our mega obstacle courses or navigating our climbing ropes, or through drills and games, our twos will improve on their coordination, agility and strength and in that process build their self-esteem and confidence.
The Super Wigglers is designed to introduce toddler to learn through play. This program is instructional and educational, but fun. Our Trainers place emphasis on global, environmental, cultural and ecological themes to enhance knowledge and basic literacy through the use of hands-on activities, nursery rhymes, phonics as well as music and movement, art and craft and social skills in preparation for pre-school.
Our Climbers are gaining greater independence. They are nurtured to face new challenges by our Trainers, who spot them and provide positive encouragement,. This is the class where they are exposed to gymnastic and sports skills, relays and much more. These activities help build up their strength, coordination, flexibility and agility. Ultimately, the goal is to help them have a more positive mindset and to build their confidence in embracing activities individually as well as in teams. Whether it is mastering a handstand, straddle jump or learning to dribble a ball, our 3 year old Climbers will start to develop their fitness levels and are introduced to the concept of good sportsmanship.
Introduces core gymnastics skills such as the forward roll, backward roll, handstands and the single bar in fun ways. This class is a good foundation for children looking to strengthen their basic gymnastic skills. In the process, they are able to gain confidence and build up their self esteem in a non-competitive environment.
This is a progression from the level I class, focusing more on skills, techniques and form. Students will start on moderate activities to advanced level. This program centers around the USA Gymnastics Compulsory Level Preparation Skills framework including the following apparatus: bars, beam, high bar, parallel bars, floor, vault, and rings.
Hey friends! I am Farah, the youngest and spunkiest in the team! I sing randomly at times and enjoy goofing around. Challenge me to a sing-off or sing along with me!
I have always had a passion in coaching kids as I enjoy every single moment of it. Seeing, coaching and interacting with children for my work just brings a smile to my face, even though you probably cannot see it as I am wearing a mask.
I joined the Power Team as part of my diploma education and I look forward to all the learning opportunities here.
Just as caterpillars make the transition to butterflies, our sliders learn to develop and understand more about their physical abilities through a series of activities and movement skills such as stretching, climbing, rolling and basic tumbling with the aid of inclines, tunnels and slides as well as manipulative play with colourful, multi-sensory toys that help with eye focus and grip control. By incorporating music, we challenge our sliders on a weekly basis in their cognitive development which helps develop speech patterns and help them make a connection with cause and effect.
Our Crawlers are just at the cusp or have already discovered their mobility skills either through crawling, walking or even running. This is the class to take them that little further in strengthening their muscles to tumble on mats, static balancing skills, jump on a trampoline, climb on our structures or to simply work on gripping skills by hanging on the single bar. There are so many things to explore in the gym and with music and movement, our crawlers start to develop their language and social skills as well as build body awareness in relation to tactile and vestibular position senses. The best bit – they have fun while learning.
