Rock Tots & Rock Kids

Share the enjoyment of climbing, singing, exercise, games and play with your toddler on one of our regular Rock Tot sessions every Tuesday and Thursday morning and Rock Kid sessions every Monday afternoon at the Mini Works.

You can read more about RockTots on their Facebook page.



Rock tot sessions are for parents and tots up to preschool age. The games and climbing elements are designed for 18 months to 3 year olds but active younger and older ones will still be able to enjoy it. For parents with a toddler and a baby there is a self-managed creche area for babies to play.

The schedule includes: dynamic movement, balance, movement initiation, coordination, flexibility and sequence recollection. Each week we will focus our games on one of these areas.
