Parent's FAQs

Are parents and carers involved?

Children that participate in Balanceability Level 1 will generally be between the ages of 2½- to 4-years-old. At this younger age we welcome support in the early sessions from the parents. Having successful interaction with you through the physical activities and games whilst your child is learning new skills will have a huge positive effect for both them and you.

What are the benefits of the group?

Children learn so much by seeing and copying others, you will be amazed at how quickly your child picks up techniques from the other children.

How much does it cost?

The cost of the course is determined by the Instructor.

Can we have this in our child's school?

Balanceability is linked to the Foundation Stage Curriculum, schools purchase the equipment needed to have this as a continual programme for Preschool/Reception and Year 1 children. We advise that you speak to your child's teacher/headteacher about the programme.

Where can I send my child on a course?

You can either attend a training day by booking at a fixed site location or arrange for an Instructor Trainer to come to your site.

  • Fixed Site - see the list of fixed locations and when the training days are being run. You can book your individual places and attend one of these training days to suit you.
  • On-Site - if you are bringing together a group of 8-12 then we can come to your site and deliver the full training day. Access to children on the day is required. Please contact us to find out more.

If you are a school that requires on-site training or would like to find out more about how your school can deliver Balanceability, please read Balanceability for Schools.
