At Jitterbugs we are passionate about helping young children develop and grow, and we strongly believe that active bodies lead to active minds.

Our high-energy programs are run in kindergartens, early learning, childcare and occupational therapy centres across metropolitan Melbourne and further afield. With a focus on movement, learning through play and fun activities, we are experts at encouraging young children from 6 months to 6 years to engage and participate in physical activity.  

Aside from being great fun, Jitterbugs sessions help develop children’s fine and gross motor skills, as well as their listening, concentration, social skills, and ultimately their self-confidence.

Structure of the program

We can tailor our sessions to your centre’s needs, with duration ranging anywhere from 30 mins to 2 hours in length, at a time of day that suits your program. We offer incursions, occasional visits and a full year-long program, with a different theme every week.

The Jitterbugs Program is suitable for children of all ages, ensuring that all activities are age appropriate for babies, toddlers, pre-kinder and kinder aged children.

Our costs will vary depending on the length of the sessions you need, and payment can be organised either from your centre, or directly from the parents to Jitterbugs.
