Beaming Stars Gymnastics Club offers a unique non-competitive approach to Gymnastics. Currently running breakfast, lunch and after school clubs within Nurseries and Primary schools in South London and Kent, Beaming Stars also provide soft play sessions, Fundamental Pre-School Gymnastics and PPA & regular PE/Games cover.
Beaming Stars Gymnastics is affiliated to the British Gymnastics Association.
SOFT PLAY - STAR EXPLORERS Ages 0-5
Beaming Stars provide soft play sessions for Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School children where the emphasis is on fun and gives the children a chance to get to know the environment and the Beaming Stars Coaches before progressing to Pre-School or Recreational Gymnastics.
Social play is vital to a child’s development. Soft play sessions help your child in gaining social and manipulation skills as well as spatial awareness and discovery. Regular visits to these sessions are more beneficial as babies and Toddlers need structure and a regular routine. Beaming Stars Soft Play exercise and group activities help form an important part of the structure and routine of your Childs next step in to Pre-School gymnastics
Our Soft Play sessions are on Thursdays in Welling and New Ash Green, Kent:

Children take part in free play with their accompanying adult(s) and have the opportunity to play (whilst listening to the latest kiddie tunes) on the soft play equipment, the bouncy castle or the various side stations set up consisting of items such as hula hoops, tap sticks, hoops, cubes and many more. Just before the end of the session we encourage the children and their parent/carer(s) to come and sit together on the mat to participate in some favourite action songs using tap sticks and bean bags and of course, our goodbye song.
Visits can be either on a drop in basis or you can sign up for the term and receive one session free!
The atmosphere at our soft play sessions is very relaxed, informal and friendly and it's the perfect place to take a breather and spend some quality time with your child whilst catching up with other local mums. Most weeks there are refreshments available for sale including tea and coffee and of course something for the little ones.

Beaming Stars provide Soft Play parties for ages 5 and under. We pull all the best bits from our weekly soft play sessions to give you a fantastic selection including bouncy castle (specifically for under 5's), soft play shapes, tunnels, ball pool, slides as well as some toys for the younger ones - check out our gallery to see our current soft play set up and some of the equipment you could have at your party!!

STARBURSTS Ages 2-3
Our Starbursts sessions are semi-structured for both parent/carer and child and are the perfect introduction to our Pre-School Gymnastics for the younger children who have just started to become confident walkers and who are ready to progress from Soft Play sessions.
Classes begin with a short warm up (4-5 mins) starting with our Beaming Stars song followed by a pulse raising song with actions to exercise main muscle groups.
Apparatus similar to the type the children might see at a soft play session includes a single larger circuit of Gymnastics equipment to include a “Star Station” for children to achieve a specific skill. The children learn through exploration, supported by their carer and coaches.
Sessions conclude with a themed cool down with bubbles, songs and a parachute.
Children are given a Beaming Stars Achievement card at the start of the course which is linked to the “Star Station” and enables the children to earn stamps each week to record their achievement and at the course receive a certificate for earning these stamps. We will start to prepare and assess children to attend our independent child class “Shooting Stars”
SHOOTING STARS Ages 3-4
When our Starshines are ready to move on to a more structured and independent (without a supporting parent/carer) class, they will be invited to attend our Shooting Stars sessions.
Classes begin with a warm up (10 mins) to include pulse raiser, stretching, body conditioning and flexibilityfollowed by a pulse raising song with actions that exercise main muscle groups and introduce rolling, floor shapes and body preparation using hand apparatus.
The class is split into ability groups with 1 coach per group and small apparatus stations are set up including side stations with a structured circuit to be followed.
Gymnasts will work towards the British Gymnastics Pre-School Proficiency Awards Scheme which covers Action, Balance and Co-ordination.
STARSHINES Ages 5-13
Once our Shooting Stars reach primary school age, we provide a seamless transition to our After School club.
Currently offering two sessions a week which each include 3 groups to accommodate all abilities (which means siblings can attend the same sessions so no waiting around for hours on end mums and dads!), we provide a safe, structured gymnastics environment for every child to develop their skills.
Classes begin with a pulse raising warm up to music for all gymnasts which will be followed by going off to their individual groups for focus on one or more of the following:
- Floor – Children will be developing at their own pace from forward rolls to somersaults!
- Vault – Children will be taught various vaulting skills from jumping on the springboard to squat through and straddle overs.
- Gymnasts will also have the opportunity to use the wall bars to gain upper body strength and will use the balancing benches for co-ordination.
- Additional equipment and skills will be introduced as the courses progress to ensure the gymnasts development and progress is continuous.
Sessions conclude by coming together for the last 5 minutes to take part in a cool down exercise.
Each child will receive an Achievement card at the start of the course which is linked to our ‘Star Station’ development plan so that progress and achievements can be recorded. Gymnasts will work and develop in accordance with their ability level to ensure they reach their full potential.
Gymnasts will be given the opportunity to work towards their badges, perform displays and compete in an annual in-house friendly competition.
BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS
Beaming Stars believes all children should have the opportunity to belong to an affiliated gymnastics club but without the pressure a regular Gym club can bring – whilst BS encourages and develops each child, we believe each child be treated as an individual and developed to their full potential.
Beaming Stars Gymnastics supports Physical Education in Primary Schools because Gymnastics provides considerable advantages to individuals in terms of the fundamental physical, psychological and social building blocks for current and future participation – agility, balance and coordination as well as movement and social skills. These are skills that children can take into long term participation in gymnastics and to other sports, providing a significantly enhanced chance of lifelong participation and performance.
Beaming Stars currently works with over 35 schools in the London and Kent areas providing and individual offering, tailored to each School’s requirements.AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS (AGES 4-11)

Participating in sports can have a healthy developmental impact on young children, promoting cooperative play, teamwork and good sportsmanship while helping to refine gross motor skills. Physical activity stimulates growth and leads to improved physical and emotional health. Beaming Stars base our whole philosophy on ‘Every child matters’.
DAYTIME GYMNASTICS RESOURCE / P.E. LESSONS (AGES 4-11)
Physical activity stimulates growth and leads to improved physical and emotional health. Beaming Stars base our whole philosophy on ‘Every child matters’. With over 20 years experience of teaching gymnastics in schools, Beaming Stars are able to offer gymnastics to children of all school ages, designing lessons with our unique Ready Steady Action development scheme according to age and capabilities.
For the EYFS, sessions will be themed based so the children will develop physically as well as enhancing their emotional, social and personal development.

READY STEADY ACTION For our School clubs, Beaming Stars have devised a unique scheme from Reception to Year 6 which incorporates co-ordination, balance, exercise and movement elements where each child is tracked through their development to ensure they reach their full potential.
