Activities for the under 5’s
KinderGym classes cater for the 1-5 year olds. Movement based programs which are designed to develop children emotionally, socially, cognitively and physically within a safe, structured environment. Classes align with school terms however KinderGym often offers a casual class over the School Holidays. Ask at Reception for details or see our School Holiday program page.
When can I start?
You can begin at any time during the term with prorata payment but you will need to phone PCYC reception 6344 2411 to see if there is a class place available. Casual sessions allow drop in but numbers are limited. Pay at Reception and collect a PAYMENT RECEIVED card to hand to the teacher. Classes are held upstairs.
MIDWEEK Class Fees Both Casual and Booked Sessions are available during the week.
Casual Sessions: Casuals are welcome to come along anything to this class. A maximum of 40 participants on a “first in first served” basis.
Booked Sessions: Going into a Booked Term Session class means your class place is guaranteed each week, and there is a limited class size with a regular group of children and parents attending. The smaller group size means coaches are able to spend time with each child and getting to know your child better.
This in turn allows our coaches to provide a more individually tailored session for your child. Children receive a book & stamps to reward their good work, as well as other benefits. Payment for Booked Sessions is by Direct Debit. Direct Debit helps keep our costs of running the programs down.
Direct Debit spreads your fees over a 52 week year and is perpetual until you cancel (at the end of a term). Cancellations can be lodged at any time (on a cancellation form), to finish the class at the end of the current term. Note that payments are on a 13 week quarter for each term not a 10 week school term.
WEEKEND Class Fees Casual Vs. Priority Paid Term Pass: Our weekend KinderGym class accommodates both Casual Payers and those people who want to secure their session. When you arrive at the desk you will see that PRIORITY PAID payers already have their name on the Sign In List.
Because places are limited in each class this ensures their place in the class is protected. People can, however, choose to attend as a casual drop in. This is slightly more expensive and your place is not guaranteed.
Weekend sessions are on a “first in, first served” basis if you do not have a PRIORITY PAID TERM PASS. This card also provides a discount on the casual fee. NOTE THAT our weekend classes occasionally can’t operate due to a major competition or course being at PCYC, as we are the biggest venue in the north of the state.
Session Payment: Casuals must pay each week at PCYC reception which is downstairs. You will be given a class card upon payment. After KinderGYM, most classes do not have a Casual option because of strict child:coach ratios which change as we start to teach participants more structured skills.
