Learn through play, with PlayActive.

playactive_newslettercircle474x474_3.pngPlayActive is a unique Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) for young children aged from 6 months to
3 years old and their parents. Our dynamic, unique program recognises that play is an important part of a child’s growth and learning. PlayActive is about experiential and kinaesthetic education - learning through doing.

Our 50 minute classes in the Bandicoots Play Centre are a combination of structured and unstructured formats using music, equipment and movement to develop fine and gross motor skills, spatial awareness and bridge the gap between the body and brain.

Your child’s cognitive, emotional and behavioural development and their natural learning style will be nurtured throughout the program. PlayActive’s focus is on developing the child rather than the skill.

The program is also about you, the parent. Learn more about your child and what activities they will benefit from and why.

How the class runs

  • Time to get moving We start with a welcome song, warm up and move to the music
  • Ready, set, go! Then we work our way through a circuit of fun activities and games
  • Shake it off Free time to play on the Bandicoots play structure  and revisit the circuit
  • See you next week The class ends with circle time and a goodbye song.

Each class accommodates only 15 children in order to give them the best opportunity to thrive. PlayActive is a parent child program where you attend and participate with your child. More than one parent/guardian is most welcome to attend our fun sessions and crèche facilities right next door are available for siblings.

Age/Development groups

Bouncy Bubs - 6 to 12 months
Toddle Tots - 12 to 18 months
NEW CLASS Bouncy Tots - We now offer a transition class for your little one! It's a hybrid of our Bouncy Bubs and Toddle Tots classes and caters for little ones 10 months – 18 months old. 
Wiggle and Walk - 18 to 24 months
Two Can Do - 2 years
Three Watch Me - 3 years

These age groupings are a guide only, your child will progress through the classes as they meet developmental milestones, rather than strictly by age.

New Rock up and PlayActive

If you don't want to commit to a full term, we are offering a special new class on Thursday mornings during term time which provides you with a taster of the full program. Our Play Leader will begin the 50 minute session with our welcome song and some group mat time and then your little ones can explore the mini version of the PlayActive circuit.

There's no upfront commitment, just come along on the day. $8 per class, and is for all of our PlayActive ages.


PlayActive is just $10 per week per child. 

PlayActive operates through the school term, and you can enrol any time throughout the term. The cost of a ten week term is $100, and if you start later, you will only pay the pro rata amount. Sessions do not run on public holidays.

We offer upfront payments only. 


We are now accepting enrolments for Term 4 2021. 

Enrol now 

We offer a one off trial class for $10. After that if you do not sign up for the full term you can attend for $15 per class on a casual basis.
