Athelstone Kindergym promotes the development of the whole child socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically through movement – it’s a place where children can swing, jump, throw, climb, explore and learn in a safe, multi-sensory environment.
Athelstone Kindergym is a not-for-profit organisation specialising in programs for children from 6 months to five years of age. We operate during school terms and each session is managed by a qualified leader.
Kindergym is often the first contact a child has with organised physical activity/sport. Through our programs, Athelstone Kindergym lays the foundations of an ongoing active and healthy lifestyle.
Conveniently located within the Max Amber Sportsfield building, 150 George Street Paradise. There is ample street parking.
Let us help your child reach their full potential.

Learning through movement
Learning through play in a stimulating, non-competitive environment, enables children to develop their skills and confidence in readiness for kindergarten, competitive sport and of course, school.
As the child is accompanied by a caregiver, Kindergym also enables the child and parent to “play” together.
“Parents who have the opportunity to glimpse into their children’s world learn to communicate more effectively with their children and are given another setting to offer gentle, nurturing guidance.
Less verbal children may be able to express their views, experiences, and even frustrations through play, allowing their parents an opportunity to gain a fuller understanding of their perspective.
Quite simply, play offers parents a wonderful opportunity to engage fully with their children.”
The Importance of Play in Promoting Healthy Child Development and Maintaining Strong Parent-Child Bonds” Kenneth R Ginsburg, MD
