Term 4 Lane Cove Activities from Toddlers to Teens 2020

TERM 4 is HERE! We have put together a list of some local activities for pre-schoolers, primary school students, tweens, teenagers/secondary school kids – in other words something for everyone.



Kumon Lane Cove

At Kumon, we personalise each student’s program, right from the beginning. Students begin study at a level that allows them to build self-confidence from day one, and progress according to their ability rather than their age. Over time, our students develop the study habits, attitude and skills that will allow them to study advanced material confidently and independently.

Kumon has operated in Lane Cove for over 30 years, and is run by local mum (and ex-Kumon Student) Sheryl Lee. We are constantly adjusting our centre to ensure the safety of our students, staff and the local community. Families can study with us in person, online, or via correspondence – choose the system that suits your family best!

Find out more about the Kumon Method of Learning by watching our introductory video (kumonglobal.com/kumon-a-foundation-for-the-future/) or booking an Orientation Meeting directly with Sheryl at [email protected].

Kids Motor Skillz, by 4 Elements of Health

Motor skills are skills that enable the movements and tasks we do on a daily basis.  Gross motor skills use the large muscles in the body and include broader movements such as walking and jumping.
Typically children develop certain motor skills at specific ages, though not every child will reach these milestones at precisely the same time.  A child with motor impairments has trouble moving in a controlled, coordinated, and efficient way.

Fortunately these skills, like any skill can be trained, in Kids Motor SkillZ we focus on kicking, jumping, hand eye coordination, throwing and catching, movement patterns, balance and many more activities.Classes are limited to 4 students for an 8 week block,  starting on the second week of the school term.

Kids will meet under the Kindy COLA, supervised and brought back to Kids Motor SkillZ headquarters (16 Gardenia ave LCW) where they will eat their own snack before commencing activities. Pick up will be from 4:30 however parents, you are more than welcome to view the class.

  • Age Group: 6-10
  • Days: Tuesday or Thursday (Start date 13 Oct – runs for 9 weeks)
  • 3:25pm – 5:00pm
  • 8 Week term
  • Cost: $199
  • Class size 4 Max.
