Junior Classes

FROM 7 MONTHS TO 4 YEARS

Our junior development program has been established in consultation with one of the country’s lead paediatric physiotherapists and will provide the framework your child needs to grow from a new-born to school readiness.

The classes are focused on fundamental movement skills. What are they? Stability, Locomotor, Manipulative. Becoming proficient in the three fundamental movement skills enables children to participate confidently in play, games and outdoor activities at home and school. They’re more confident and social, so more likely to maintain a healthy and active life as they grow up.

We will also assist your child achieve social, mental, verbal and behavioural milestones specific to their age. Throughout the program your child will graduate from each class and receive a certificate highlighting the milestones they have achieved.
