    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!

    Yay for the third trimester, we can't wait for him to arrive

    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...

    Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes.
