No. One of the many benefits of the Ed Gym program is that you get to be involved. Your involvement is essential to ensuring your child gains maximum benefit from the program. From our observations it is evident that children will:
- Naturally seek challenges to test themselves,
- Take risks in an attempt to master new skills,
- Not necessarily seek adult attention or assistance when combating these new challenges.
As such, all parents are encouraged to be involved with their children’s participation at Ed Gym and actively supervise their involvement. We ask that you stay close to your child, i.e. arms distance, as they navigate the equipment. Enjoy watching your child learn and discover new skills!
