Our one stop shop pre-school programs do just that for every student learning from our caring teachers in our nurturing and safe environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I watch my child’s classes?

In our experience preschoolers are able to concentrate better without the distraction of other noise in the room from parents and other siblings. Our program has been endorsed by leading child care experts who support the independent learning model. As preschoolers participate in classes they have the opportunity to develop additional secure attachments with adults (teachers) and peers. This helps them transition positively into the larger world and helps with school readiness.

Having said that, a lot of children are timid at first and need to know that a parent is close by. Our program allows parents to watch the first class if necessary to help them adjust.

Are your teacher’s qualified?

All teachers have their Working with Children Check and follow the program that is endorsed by early learning experts. READY SET DANCE teachers are required to gain their accreditation from READY SET DANCE head office before delivering the program. This also applies to Little Monkeys and Tumbletown where all teachers must acquire a teachers accreditation in this field before gaining competency to teach.

Do we need to purchase uniform and shoes?

Students must wear the READY SET DANCE uniform for dance classes. However, we need to make sure we are the right fit for you and your child before committing to anything. Comfortable clothes and sneakers are fine for the first couple of lessons. Once your child has settled you can purchase the official READY SET DANCE uniform at reception which we are sure you will love. We also have Little Monkeys t-shirts available.
