Little n Active Classes

Little n Active classes cater for different ages and developmental stages, providing children with developmentally appropriate activities to build fundamental movement and improve physical ability.

Classes are grouped by developmental stages, and active parental participation is a key component of the program. Each 45-minute class involves a welcome and open exploration, group time, guided adventure and farewell. Adventures are also used each week and are the foundation for the learning stories that are created.

Approximate ages are:

Playtime: 0 months to 2 years

AVAILABLE AT SELECT PCYC CLUBS*
Playtime classes are designed to support early development through a range of stimulating sensory experiences. Children will develop muscle strength and take their first steps and tumbles in our safe, colourful and social-play based sessions.

 


Munchkins: 18 months to 2.5 years

Munchkins classes are designed for confident walkers who are keen to explore the world with their body. Munchkins are learning to run and jump, and they like to play alone or alongside other children. They like to imitate and can respond to simple directions.

 

Sprouts: 2.5 to 4 years

Sprouts classes are designed for children who can run and jump confidently. Sprouts are learning to hop, jump down from low heights, kick on the move and balance along a narrow beam. They are starting to play with other children, can share (with a little help) and enjoy dramatic play.

 

Tykes: 4 to 5 years

Tykes classes are designed for children who are becoming independent. These classes help children learn to listen, follow instructions, cooperate with others and the activities are more challenging.

Sibs: Crawling to 5 years

Sibs is great for families where one grown up attends with siblings under five. The content in this class includes a variety of activities that cater to various developmental stages and allows for reduced adult assistance.
