Music & movement for babies, toddlers and preschoolers

11:11 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.

Kindergym is now located at Eleven:Eleven Fitness, 11 Tova Drive, Carrum Downs, VIC 3201.

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.

What to expect:

  • Music Time
    The session starts and finishes with group time with Kodaly music inspired singing, actions and games. We use individual hand-held items such as fabric balls, scarves, puppets and instruments plus cooperative play items such as parachutes, beach balls and fabric
  • Movement Time
    Our equipment is set to engage children on a journey of discovery and the environment acts as a teacher. Children are given the opportunity to use the equipment and their bodies as they choose. Themes change regularly to captivate children’s interest.
  • Quality Educators
    Are qualified Kindergym leaders scaffolds children’s innate learning abilities and support children extending their skills
  • Small Class Sizes
    To maximise engagement classes are capped at 10 children/families per class
  • Connection
    When children feel safe and secure they’re ready and wired to learn. Our sessions are designed for mums, dads, aunties, uncles, grand parents, foster carers or childcare professionals to accompany the child in their care.
  • Family Friendly Facilities
    Whilst we’re in our temporary space, we sadly cannot offer you that complimentary tea or coffee or space for your child to enjoy a snack with other families! We are however next door to a cafe, park and beach.

A unique perspective:

Kindergym is unique and different incorporating music programs from a Kodaly music perspective, specialist Kindergym gymnastics on equipment designed for babies to five year olds and novel hand held props to maximise engagement including Remo Lunn Kleiner instruments and Folkmanis puppets. This program supports development of fine and gross motor skills and enhances musical aptitude and language development. Its an inclusive learning environment in which children feel safe, accepted and engaged with child-led, parent-assisted discovery. We respond to individual child interests and unique abilities, modelling and applying intentional and responsive teaching strategies.

Playing CovidSAFE:

We’ve had to pack away some items like ball pits and swings but have new equipment to ensure there is lots of covidSAFE fun! There are new climbing frames and an inflatable tumble run for bouncing down (kind of like a long low trampoline). Equipment is cleaned between classes and we ask everyone to comply with current government CovidSAFE regulations and recommendations.
