    Default Classes for kids in Townsville?

    Im looking at putting both the boys in some sort of activity once a week. They both already do swimming lessons but I want them to do something else.

    Does anyone know of any gym, dance, music classes or something for kids under 5? Mine are almost 2 and 5mths.

    Thanks!

    I got some brochures from child health when I did my newborn classes - some of these things involve Mum as well... don't know if that's what you're after but it's something.

    Kids in Harmony - A music & lifeskills program for 7wks - 7yo

    Baby Rhyme Time - at the library for 4 to 20 mths

    BEAP (Baby's exercising and parent) - at the PCYC in Aitkenvale, it's a circuit class where your weights are your baby

    Toddler Kindy Gymbaroo - birth to 5 yo, 45 min classes weekly

    Mainly Music - 30min session of music, rhyme, mvmt, listening etc where the parents participate

    Fit for Birth - Postnatal Yoga for mums & bubs

    There's also a toy library open 3 x a month...

    So there's some alternative activities, I don't know much about older kids stuff but this might be a start.

    Glad I could help. When you get here I'll give you more details or copy the brochures for you if I can't get more copies before hand...
