Ready Steady Go Kids

Ready Steady Go Kids

Ready Steady Go Kids is Australia’s largest multi-sport and exercise program for preschoolers (aged 1.5–6 years). We have been operating since 2004 in our quest to help all children benefit from sport and physical activity. Today, our physio-designed program is run at approximately 200+ locations across Australia.

  • Our program introduces preschoolers to a variety of sports in a structured, safe, inclusive and non-competitive environment.
  • Show preschoolers that sport and physical activity are fun, thus developing a lifelong passion for exercise.
  • Develop and enhance age-appropriate gross motor skills, coordination and correct posture.
  • Introduce and reinforce the importance of warm-up and stretching to help prevent injuries, and proper hydration.
  • Teach the importance of good sportsmanship and teamwork.
  • Decrease childhood obesity.
  • Increase each child’s confidence.
  • Prepare children for school and participation in the broader community.

Each class is run indoors for 45 minutes and we cover five sports each term (taught in two week blocks). Classes are designed to focus on a specific gross motor, hand-eye/foot-eye and/or balance activity to complement the sport component and our program structure is repeated each week so that participants become familiar and comfortable with the routine.

The sports included in the Ready Steady Go Kids program are:

  • Soccer
  • Athletics
  • Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Hockey
  • Rugby
  • AFL
  • Golf
  • Cricket
  • T-ball

Our program is structured so that we can accept enrolments throughout the term. So, if you have missed the start of a term don’t panic, we might still be able to accommodate your booking. Click here to see class availability in your area. Fees are pro-rated to include only the remaining classes for term.


Sewing with Nikki

Sewing with Nikki

Sewing with Nikki offers weekly/fortnightly classes and holiday workshops teaching children to sew.

My brand-new studio located in Ryde offers classes suitable for children from 7 years old.

Students will complete stylish projects while learning basic sewing techniques. They will learn how to modify and layout patterns, cut fabric, construct, sew using a machine and hand stitching.

Sewing with Nikki provides students with all patterns, fabric and trims to create our on-trend projects using one of our brand-new computerised Janome sewing machines.

Classes will be fun while learning a valuable life skill.

Besides the obvious benefit of being able to sew on a wayward button, hem a new pair of pants, or even craft a new gift, handwork provides your children with a creative way to:

  • Develop and mature their finger dexterity and fine motor skills
  • Find and build their self-confidence
  • Learn copious amounts of patience
  • Have a social creative outlet for meeting and gathering with friends

“I’m so glad to have found Amber to be my daughter’s tutor. A very warm and lovely teacher, Amber has extensive expertise in teaching children how to read and write properly. Her unique way of teaching writing and vocabulary has enabled my daughter to develop her writing skills in a systematic way. With Amber’s wonderful guidance and support, my daughter’s writing has improved dramatically, and she has become such a confident writer capable of handling both persuasive and creative writings at a consistently high level for her age. Her enhanced writing skills have also helped her win a full scholarship to a prestigious school. I am sincerely thankful to Amber for all the support she has given to my daughter, without which my daughter would not have been able to achieve such an outstanding outcome. If you are eager to improve your child’s writing and vocabulary, I would strongly recommend you to send your child to Amber and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.”
Jing – Year 6 parent


“Thank you Amber for working with my daughter to help her achieve a High Distinction in her ICAS writing exam, 1st in English in at a Sydney-based private school, 1st in a number of other subjects which also require essay writing and the overall Academic Prize awarded to the top 2 students in the year.”
Marina – Parent of a Year 8 child


“I can clearly see the impact Amber has had on our kids these past 6 months. I highly recommend Amber’s incredibly detailed and technical writing course, the school holiday workshops or private tuition. The way Amber teaches is not like your typical teacher. She is passionate, detailed, and extremely knowledgeable and will inspire and engage your child like no other. Our kids always leave her buzzing with ideas and inspiration. Thank you so much Amber for bringing out the very best in our children. I’m thrilled we have found such a high level of teaching support for our kids now in primary and well into high school.”  
Ray – Parent of Year 4 and 5 children
