Can I drop in to any classes?

To maintain our numbers and teacher availability as well as manage disappointment we do require that bookings are made in advance for each class online. You can book into a number of our individual classes for $25 and we also offer a 10 Pack of classes for $200. You will receive a code that you can then book your space across a range of wonderful classes.

Our Modern Parenting Groups are run in 6 week programs and booked in advance prior to the start of each cycle. We try to keep everyone together as a group where possible so that everyone gets to know each other that little bit better. The parents and children. The idea is that everyone walks away knowing people and to achieve that the best we spend quality time together as a group.

To see all classes and parenting groups available - Please view our timetable.

What if i can’t make my class?

S#!T Happens (sometimes quite literally), we get it! Little ones catch colds and life can get in the way, and we would prefer you didn’t bring sick children to the centre. We do our best to accommodate everyone and will endeavor to get you into another class. However, we ask that you tell us as soon as possible so if you cannot attend so that we can give your space to someone else who may have been waiting for a makeup spot as well.

No shows without warning us will not be given a makeup class.  Students permitted a makeup, can reschedule for another class by emailing info@beachesbaby.com.au

How early do I need to arrive prior to my class?

We ask that everyone arrives 5-10mins before class starts so that we can check you in and you can get settled. We value your time so we aim to start on time every time! As we have limited space for strollers, if you are able to leave them behind, it is much appreciated.

can i bring food to the class for my baby/child?

We also ask that you do not bring food into the classroom. Our classes are usually 45mins long and would prefer children to be fed before or after class. This way children are free to focus on the activities, we lower our allergy risk and the inevitable flow on effect of every child “wanting what she’s having”! Obviously this does not apply to infants who are nursing or bottle feeding during sessions.

Can I bring my older children to the classes?

We are focused on parent connections in the early years and therefore cater to age 0-3. Our Friday night Family Game Night allows for older children, we ask that you keep our little ones in mind whenever older children are around. Our 2nd time mums parenting group are specifically designed to have toddlers in attendance, we will provide activities for their entertainment but as always, we need to keep an eye on the collective group when near younger babies.

How long do the programs run for?

Our Modern Parenting Groups run over a 6 week program. These are on a rolling schedule. Our Baby & Toddler Classes are on an ongoing / casual basis but require and online booking to secure your spot.

Do you run over school holidays?

Absolutely!! A bug bear of ours has always been that classes stop and toddlers have nowhere to go for those weeks so we don’t stop!

SAFETY:

It is important that caregivers be responsible for the safety of their child as well as to monitor their child to see that he/she does not harm others. We have some quite active classes and we ask that you be mindful of your child at all times.

We strive to create the safest environment possible that will allow for some freedom of expression given the types of materials and amount of activity.
