Beaton Park Leisure Centre is a member of Gymnastics NSW and therefore requires all participants of its programs to register as members. Membership entitles participants to sports insurance through the association as well as a membership pack.
KindaGym is an introduction to Beaton Park Gymnastics for children aged 2-5 years. Classes explore a variety of themes and activities including group activity time, music, dancing and circuits.

It is important to inform reception if your child is sick, away or on holidays. The system will only allow make-ups if we have been informed of a child’s absence in advance. Make-ups are to be used within the term the child was unable to attend a class. Any make-up classes not used within the required time frame will be forfeited. Two make-ups available per term.
