The focus is on introducing your child to play and beginning to develop and enhance their fine and gross motor skills which are so important for their early year’s development.
Parent participation is a MUST to assist with your child’s understanding and participation and provide for some valuable parent-child bonding time.

RUGGERBUGS understands the importance of learning through repetition, so the activities and equipment have been specifically designed to support this learning process and build self-esteem.

Important “skills4life” are very gently introduced to begin developing your / a child’s language, communication, listening skills and building self-esteem.

The session also allows for your child to start interacting with other children of the same age.

Trained coaches are on hand to explain, encourage and support with the activities.

At the end of each session your Child will receive a weekly Sidney Sticker to collect and stick on their Sidney Sticker Chart.
