    We check with the local council/neighborhood house regularly for new free structured activities.

    If she was over 3 or over 5 she could do WAY more for $0.

    Some of the prices charged make me go

    What sort of things have you seen offered for kids over 5??

    Can honestly say the only free activity I have ever seen in my area is at the library.

    With 4 kids our activities have dropped off completely cause it's just way too expensive.

    At the moment they do:


    DD (8 yrs old)- gymnastics $130 per term, pay upfront on the 1st week of each term.

    netball - $160 registration & $85 uniform pay upfront.


    DS1 (6.5 yrs old) gymnastics $130 per term, pay upfront on the 1st week of each term

    rugby league - $120 registration, $60 boots & a mouthguard


    DS2 (will be 2yrs old in May) gymnastics $15 per week, pay by the week

    swimming - $100 per term, pay by week 2 of each term.


    DS3 (will be 1 in May) swimming - $100 per term, pay by week 2 of each term.

    It takes some hunting! (but I enjoyed that part too)

    Over 5 she can do Full swim classes for $7 per term (to cover insurance)
    Little Athletics mini champ sessions For free
    Little learners classes
    Kids club
    Karate (once again approx $7 per term)
    More advanced Music classes with a range of instruments (they cycle 10 different ones and child gets 2 weeks at home and 2 classes per instrument) -$50 Deposit returned when classes are over and child has returned instruments!

    There are HEAPS more.. but cant think of them all ATM.. they were the ones we got excited about.

    I love our town

    DS is about to turn 2 and isn't doing anything yet. He'll be starting swimming in Spring and I'm looking into mainly music or kindermusic for him. Also looking into 'kid fit' when we get back from holidays in July. We're going to Europe for just under a month so have nooooo money now

    All these prices are making my hair go gray though... better get some more money before he gets older!

    Just library for now, at $0
    DS is 23 months, DD is 12 weeks and quite honestly, I think library is enough for now. Play group will be in the second half of this year (I want DD through her 6 month vax first, whooping cough epidemic in my area ) and then maybe in summer swimming lessons for DS.
    Next year, kindergym for DS as well I think, plus preschool one day/week.
