"Is your little one getting their recommended 180 minutes a day" - Chief Medical Officer
Both our face to face and online 40 minutes classes are perfect for introducing your child to exercise in a fun and imaginative way. Suitable for all pre-school children from around 2 years of age, each session is carefully designed to get little ones moving and so much more! Watch their creativity, confidence, physical and social skills develop week after week, and build a solid foundation for an active life.
At this age familiarity and routine is key to building confidence, so our classes follow a simple structure which is aligned with the EYFS framework:
- A warm up song and stretches
- Movement songs
- Active games
- Simple dance routines
- Water/snack break
- Cool down and stretches
- Positive feedback & Minimovez hand stamp
Our fully accredited 30 minute group sessions help child care providers to meet the requirements of the EYFS Framework and contribute to meeting the recommended 180 minutes of physical activity per day for pre-school aged children (Chief Medical Officer). We can work with you to complement the themes and activities you are developing with the children.
We use a variety of colourful and sensory equipment (pom poms, ribbons, bean bags, tunnels, hoops, balls etc) and cool music to help keep children engaged throughout the session. And it’s not just the little ones, grown ups love it too! We encourage parents, grandparents and other carers to join in the session as much as possible. Enjoying physical activity together is a great way to spend quality time with your little one, having fun and making friends. We also take song requests and younger siblings are always welcome.

Alex and Steph were fantastic at my daughter’s 5th birthday party. They managed to keep the attention of all the children the whole time and kept them thoroughly entertained. We had plenty of comments from other parents saying how brilliant they were. Would thoroughly recommend.Ross Carey
Steph and Alex did a fantastic job providing the entertainment at my daughter’s 4th birthday party this weekend. She absolutely loved it and all the kids had a brilliant time. They were so accommodating with our pirate theme too and a couple of specific requests I made. I really couldn’t have asked for anymore!Keira Borrill
Attended our first session at Abbeydale this week and it was brilliant. I was unsure how nervous my daughter would be but Steph was great at making her feel at ease and she had great fun. She’s already asked when we are going again! Will definitely be back.Hannah Johnson
My very nearly 2yr old girl has been going for a few weeks now, and we absolutely love it! Alex is fantastic with all the kids no matter how shy or outgoing, she treats them all the same. I love that she’s learning to listen and follow instructions, her fine and gross motor skills are being used, and learning to take turns and sharing. Plus, it’s so much fun (not only for the little ones- I love it too). She’s so excited to come every week. I tell everyone that will listen how fab this class is. Thanks Alex.Alex Warwick
We have been including ‘Minimovez’ sessions at our nursery since February 2015. We have done the sessions with both our ‘toddlers’ and our ‘pre-school children’ and they have all thoroughly enjoyed each and every session. Steph and Alex are professional, friendly and accommodating at all times and are very easy to work alongside. The sessions are well planned and always age/stage appropriate with safety and risk assessment being of utmost importance at all times. The themes are always fun, relevant and educational too – after the sessions the children enjoy telling us all about their heart rate and the importance of warming up and cooling down! Our parents/carers are often asking when the next Minimovez session will be taking place and the older children are always very excited to hear that “Minimovez are coming”! Thank you Steph and Alex for providing a fun way for children to keep active.Garden House Nursery, Fulwood, Sheffield
