A fun, activity-based group designed for girls aged 8-11. Through activities the girls will develop an improved understanding of social norms and expectations, awareness of appropriate social behaviour, self advocacy as well as a sense of agency, and language skills for conversation.
Fun With Feelings
This new group programme is for children aged 5-8years who will benefit from learning about managing big feelings, combating anxiety and navigating the emotional world. There are sessions along the way for parents as well.
Superstars / Superchamps
These groups are all about helping prepare children for the next steps of learning. Superstars is K/PP readiness for 2-4 yr olds and Superchamps is for PP - Year 1.
Move Write 2 Learn
For ages Kindy and Preprimary, Years 1 to 2, and Years 3 to 4. Groups will target children's fine motor, gross motor, handwriting, and language skills for writing, planning stories and independent working skills
These groups aim to help children develop an improved understanding of social norms and expectations, awareness of appropriate social behaviour and language skills for conversation.
This group addresses children's organisational skills in the home and school environment. Topics covered include self regulation, problem solving, flexible and positive thinking.
Our Mealtime Matters groups aim to help children with very selective eating. Children are supported to expand their food tolerance through the use of a range of therapeutic approaches (eg SOS, MORE, Social Thinking) as well as through the group dynamic.
The Three R's
Toddler Say and Play
This group helps children develop their phonemic awareness skills which are the building blocks required for reading and writing skills. Children who struggle to identify the alphabet letter sounds, struggle to identify real rhyming words or find it difficult to take apart and build words. Children will practice these skills to enhance their confidence with reading and writing
Our group focuses on improving children's bike skills and confidence. This programme helps develop balance and strength in a way that is functional and fun.
Our 'Squad Training' is a movement skills programme for children aged 5-12. The programme is especially for children with motor learning difficulties of any description and helps with development of strength, balance and coordination!
