Jump Up - Junior Programs

Would you like to instill a love of the outdoors and adventure in your childhood?

Are you keen for your child to be healthy and active?

 

Come along with your child to Jump Up – Junior and watch them play, explore and have fun while igniting all of their senses. Each week we provide materials and activity ideas that encourage young children to move, create and develop a love of the outdoors.

Designed by Madeline Avci, Occupational Therapist specialising in child and youth development, the Jump Up – Junior Program challenges and encourages children to learn new skills in a fun (and messy) way.

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 – Junior is a ‘must have’ experience for all young children. Check out
the information below and call us.

Where is the Outdoor Program located?The program is held on grounds adjacent to the Pine River behind St Paul’s School, Bald Hills in northern Brisbane. This program is independent and not affiliated with St Paul’s School, or any other educational program.
What is the cost per session?$200 / child for the 8 week program.
What should my child wear for the session?We will be outdoors and whilst there are many areas of shade available, it is essential that children wear sun safe clothing always.

 

When attending a Jump Up Outdoors program, children must wear:

  • Sun protective clothing that covers as much of the skin as possible
  • Sunscreen
  • A hat that protects face, head, neck and ears (no caps)
  • Closed toe shoes with socks
  • Sunglasses are also recommended
  • Please cover all open wounds with plaster.
What do I pack in my child’s backpack?
  • Snacks (outdoor play makes children hungry!) in an insulated container with cold blocks
  • A large filled water bottle
  • Sunscreen (30+ water resistant)
  • Insect repellent
  • Hat (wide brimmed)
  • Two spare pairs of clothes that your child can dress themselves (Please only pack items that can get wet and muddy!)
  • A spare pair of shoes and socks
  • A towel
  • 2 plastic bags for wet clothes
  • Please do not bring electronic devices of any kind.

On rainy days, your child may wish to bring:

  • Rain coat
  • Gum boots
  • Umbrella.

To limit any lost property:

  • Please label all items with your child’s name.

Make that booking for your child

and develop a love of playing outdoors early.
