Your preschooler will learn through hands-on activities in all areas of our spacious facility – gym, pool, park and classroom

For ages 2-5 years

Elevate your child’s early learning experience with our team of dedicated Active Living Instructors. In our spacious facility, your children engage in hands-on learning across our gyms, pool, park, ninja chamber, and classroom. Our experienced team focuses on fundamental movement skills, nurturing young minds with a passion for active living. The Active Living Program ensures physical activity is blended with cognitive and social development.

Choose the day(s) you would like your child to attend. Register for one day or as many as five – it’s up to you and based on your needs. Instructors all have SFA/CPR C, Police Check with Vulnerable Sector and are High Five trained. As a best practice we encourage all staff to obtain their child Development Assistant. All Instructors have a good understanding on the importance of sport and physical literacy in the development of children.
