Artspark Studios 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Artspark is a sun-filled art and sewing studio located in the middle of Rozelle.

Our projects are following the interests of the children and trying to add new insight and build skills. It may seem like fun and games – and it is – but children are learning a lot through exploring creative activities. Your child will gain useful life skills like communication, problem solving, social skills, fine motor skills and an essential understanding of sustainability and innovation. We believe art-making is a valuable tool for self-expression and gaining independence.

Our eco-friendly garden with edible plants is a home to three chickens and two guinea pigs. The garden is a perfect place to relax, play and source materials for projects. Students will have opportunities to tend to plants, and to associate with animals.

Cost: From $25

Starting with Family Yoga for toddlers, followed by Bendybods for preschoolers, then Flying Yogis for primary school children, tweens then teens … our age-specific programs are a local favourite in the Inner West area.

Ready Steady Go Kids Balmain

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ready Steady Go Kids offers children the chance to try 10 different sports. It’s suitable for kids aged 1.5–6 years and they learn a number of different types of throws (cricket, t-ball, basketball), kicks (AFL, rugby, soccer), hits (golf, tennis, hockey) and they’ll experience all the different parts of athletics (running, jumping, hurdling and of course egg and spoon).

Ready Steady Go Kids is a physio-designed program and the kids will gain skills around teamwork and sportsmanship as well as developing new friends.

Each term consists of five sports, for two weeks, so while there’s great variety, kids can build on what they’ve learnt in the first class.

All classes are run indoors, so if it rains, classes will always be on and your child will never miss out on a fun week.

Cost: $18.40-$22.80 per class
