“Hi. I just wanted to share my experience tonight, I have been doing the Frankston classes, with this being my third week. My boys, 4 and nearly 2, come with me. We have a ritual at bedtime to talk about our favourite part of the day. Tonight Mr 4’s favourite part of the day was seeing our instructor Sheridan at “exercise”. He told his Dad that when we see Sheridan we get to do push ups, mountain climbers and get strong. Thank you for this incredible program, and for the amazing Sheridan who includes the kids wherever possible and makes me feel so welcome and comfortable in an active environment.
