Music & movement for babies, toddlers and preschoolers

Seaford Kindergym is a hidden gem located in Melbourne’s South East! A purpose designed gymnasium with squishy springboard floors and mats for soft landings. There’s specialised equipment like climbing frames, tunnels, bars, swings, ropes, ramps, rockers and spinning devices plus friendly, qualified staff who are passionate about motivating, encouraging and supporting your little one to move.

We absolutely love Kindergym!

My 16 month old has been attending Kindergym since he was 5 months old and absolutely loves it. Its great for both his physical and social development. The kids are allowed to explore the high quality equipment at their own pace and pursue activities that capture their interest. It is a friendly and supportive environment and its great to catch up with other families for a tea or coffee after class.
