ABOUT OUR PLAY SESSIONS
Our weekly sessions are led by Jenny who has over 18 years experience teaching children sport & physical activity. Everything Jenny has learnt through her experience in early childcare, sport & physical activity is considered within our play sessions.
Each week we will explore a new theme (skill) and include it in our imaginative play through repetition. In this age range repetition is key for your child's understanding of the skill and gaining the confidence to perform that skill.
Not only do we focus on gross motor development, we are equally passionate about your child's social and emotional development. Our aim is to encourage confidence in each child, however we are equally supportive of parent's joining in with their child if they need that extra support. In our 45 minute sessions, the core focus is always on fun and imaginative play using age appropriate equipment and the surrounding nature.
We structure our sessions with the same routine so each child feels comfortable and confident each week;
A movement based warm up
An activity using our chosen skill
A game using our chosen skill
A very basic, brief discussion on what we learnt/played/enjoyed to reinforce our skills
And to finish... a mini dance party!
After each session our families will receive an email fact sheet highlighting the skills we learnt that week and ways to recreate more fun at home!
My daughter absolutely loves her Ribbit and Roo sessions, she often anticipates the day asking “Ribbit and Roo today Mum?”. The preparation and creativity that Jenny puts into each session is always so imaginative and exciting for the kids, she knows exactly how to keep them all active and engaged. I love that the sessions are set up outside in a really relaxed friendly environment where the mums can chat and the kids are amongst nature while learning and exercising. I highly highly recommend these sessions for your little ones!
Testimonials from our families
My kids LOVE Ribbit & Roo! Jenny is the most organised, creative & adoring instructor who the kids gravitate towards to beautifully. The part I like the best is chilling out on the side with other local mums having quality adult conversations, with minimal interruptions ;)
Ribbit & Roo has been an amazing experience for my little guy! He is always excited to get going to our sessions (this from someone who drags their feet getting to most other things) and most days asks when we're going again. The kids are always engaged and happy, the activities are perfectly designed and well timed for them, and Jenny has such an incredible connection with all of her participants. Highly recommended!
