What a lovely way to spend our Wednesday mornings! *** loves his time at Growing Kind every week and is absolutely knackered every time we leave. It’s a lovely, vibrant and comfortable space for bubs to play and engage with the most amazing teachers. We are so lucky and thankful to have found you guys and I could not recommend the classes more highly!
**** loves Growing Kind. This is the best group we have attended. **** is usually a very reserved guy who is very shy. But the environment at Growing Kind has brought him out, he is chatting and sharing with the other kids and participating in each of the activities. As a mother; I really feel at ease and comfortable while at Growing Kind.
I really enjoy this special time each week with my son and we look forward to our group every week. Thank you Amie for creating this group and making it so affordable ???
Professional and friendly fun. I find the educators genuine and easy going. Classes are really well balanced between structured activities and free-time play. I appreciate the safe area in which the classes are held – certainly puts a twin mum’s mind at ease. Two closed doors and a pool gate makes moving between the car and class less hectic too. I also appreciate the affordability of Growing Kind.
I love these classes. I wasn’t able to put my daughter in kindy due to the medical fragility of my younger son with cerebral palsy. When he passed away earlier this year, I was keen to get my daughter into something…but also wanted to be involved. Not to just drop her off and pick her up. The Growing Kind classes have been wonderful. There is no pressure on her or me. Just a chance for us to both get out and socialise, explore and learn together. Thanks so much to Amie and Karlee. You have been wonderful!
We have loved the classes. Wonderful how you cater to such a diverse group and it allows for flexibility, unlike other classes that are very rigid and so disclude many. Happy that we found your classes! ❤️
