I am unsure if the program will suit my child, can I do a trial class?

Yes, trial classes are offered at the end of Terms 1, 2 and 3, so that participants will be ready to commence week 1 of the corresponding term.  If you miss these trials you can do your first class as a trial, however, this can only be provided if there are places available in the class (Note: many of our classes do book out) To book a trial class call 9397 3111.

My child is 13 months old, should I enrol in the 9 – 15 months Tumble Tots class or 1 – 2 year class?

The program has an overlap for these two age groups to allow for variation in child development.  Generally if your child is walking confidently they will be best in the 1 – 2 year class.

Are there age restrictions on any programs?

Yes as follows

  • Tumble Tots: is based on development as well as age so it is possible to book into a class above or below your child’s age at the discretion of the instructors.
  • Kindamania 3 – 5 years: Must be turning 3 during the term they are booking into
  • Sporty Kids 3 – 5 years:  Must be turning 3 during the term they are booking into
  • Activ Sports  4 – 12 years: Must already have turned 4 at the beginning of the term

If I book into a class that is not suited to my child can I change classes during the term?

Yes, provided there are places available you can switch classes at any time during the term Discuss this with the instructors at the class and they will notify the program coordinator; or call 9397 3000.

How long is a Tumble Tots Class and what do they do?

All Tumble tots classes are for one hour, which includes 15 minutes free play at the beginning. The structured class time consists of action songs with music, an extensive climbing circuit, musical instrument play and group games. Each of the components varies according to the age group of the class to enhance development accordingly.

What is the difference between Tumble Tots, Kindamania and Sporty Kids?

Kindamania and Sporty Kids classes are also for one hour but there is no free play at the beginning so it is important to arrive on time.

  • Kindamania activities are based exploring a new theme each week. Themes include Role Play, Building and Construction, Senses, Sport, Coordination, Music, Living Things Fitness, Craft, Colours and Shapes
  • Sporty Kids activities are based on a new set of sporting skills each week aimed at developing coordination, encouraging team work and enjoying physical activity.
