Jump Up - After School Programs

Messy, spontaneous, adventurous…sound like fun?

An afternoon of outdoor fun for the kids to unwind, explore, create and imagine.

 

Jump Up – After School will give your child a new sense of freedom to explore, create and imagine. We will spend all afternoon playing outdoors, taking considered risks, having fun, experiencing new sensations and working together to complete small projects (eg cubby building, starting a fire, making a dam, fishing etc). Children will leave at the end of the afternoon feeling relaxed and accomplished, with heaps of stories of their very own adventures and usually ready for bed.

Grab a school friend and come ready to unwind, explore and have fun!

Designed by Madeline Avci, Occupational Therapist specialising in child and youth development, the Jump Up – After School Program ignites wonder and excitement in children and encourages them to unwind after a busy school week.

Research shows that children who play outside are:

  • more likely to engage in active play
  • more likely to make healthy food choices
  • less likely to develop a range of chronic health conditions (eg obesity, diabetes)
  • more likely to be physically and socially adept.

But the children don’t know any of this, they are too busy have a fun!

Jump Up – After School is a kids only experience which gives the adults a few hours to themselves.
