Since we aren’t able to travel, we’re putting together an “Adventures & Travels” theme this Winter Holidays
Each Day, through our activities, art and mindfulness programs, we will visit a different country. We may eat rice paper rolls on cooking day; create Origami during art; dance to Tribal Rhythms; play Petanque during our picnics. Who needs to travel when we can bring the whole world to Annandale?
We will have 2 groups 5-8yrs old (yr k-2 ) ; 9-13yrs old (going into yrs 3-6).
Simply book your child in and we will put them in the correct group. Please note- our programs are workshops style and aren’t suitable for preschoolers (please don’t book Preschoolers in- the programs aren’t designed with them in mind then their experience with us is not always a positive one!).
9am- 3pm daily. Full day programs $105 per day!
We still always offer 5 days for price of 4!
Need aftercare? 8:30- 5:30pm for $30 extra!

These holidays, we will be taking the children to Weekeley Park, Stanmore. If we ever change parks, you will be notified. We apply sunscreen to all children. If your child uses a sensitive skin sunscreen- please pop a tube in their bag and let us know.
What to Wear in General:
Gymnastics/ yoga style gear & sneakers (for park activities). Anything they can move around in alot. They will be barefoot inside for many activities- so no closed toe tights. Nothing too fancy- we use paint; go to parks; love arts and crafts… so something that can come home a little “loved”.
Art Project Days: What to bring!
Check our art project calendar. You may need to bring something from home (normally a jar/ or a bottle of some sort. There’s always one t-shirt design day- so if you pick that day, your child will need to bring an item of cotton clothing)
Late Drop offs and Early Pickups
Please call us on (02) 93860031 if you are dropping your children off late or picking them early. There are some circumstances where we may leave for the park early; or only be getting back to the studio moments before 3pm. On those days- we will let you know exactly where to pick your child up from.
Holiday Program & Workshop/ Event Attendance Cancellation Policy Updated for Covid 19 Pandemic Times.
We respect people are being asked to keep unwell children at home – even a sneeze may render a child homebound and waiting for test results. In this situation, we offer credit for future programs. We require a drs certificate to honour the credit.
If your area has been asked to isolate, likewise, we can hold credit for future programs.
If a refund is required, a 20% admin fee will be charged.
No refunds offered on Early Bird Special purchases. You can move your days around if there is room, however we can’t hold credit for future programs for early bird bookings
What to Bring each day:
Meals aren’t included: please pack a hearty lunch; snacks and bottle of water. We are a complete nut free zone– so please respect this for the safety of other children.
We kindly request you take into consideration the level of processed sugars in your children’s food whilst on our camps. We are not by any stretch of the imagination judgemental about what you feed your children, however- highly sugared up children are very hard to manage. We know it’s their holidays and its time for fun and treats- but please ensure treats are moderate and ideally healthy!!
All Meals; a few $ for healthy tuckshop; Labelled water bottle; hat for outdoor days.
We have a Tuck shop with healthy food options: yoghurts; oat bars; home made bliss balls; seaweed snacks; apples; pears etc. Please let your children know that if you haven’t provided them $ for tuck shop that we cant give them anything.
Updated Hygiene Policies to address recent increase in Coronavirus cases:
Due to these uncertain times, we are taking our hygiene policies very seriously, and expect all parents, children and staff to help us with the administering of these to these rules.
Parents- morning drop off will be downstairs- you will sign your children in there. Someone will take them up. When you pick them up at the end- someone will be at the bottom of stairs and will call your child out to leave with you.
All children are to sanitise hands on entry to studio; and various times through the day;
We will take temperatures upon entry to the studio
We will have a chat with them about hand cleanliness and touching faces and community contact.
Please don’t send unwell children to the studio. We can credit you if your child is sick . If you notify us on the day, please present a medical cert/ or proof of covid test for us to honour the credit.
Label water bottles- we wont provide cups for children without bottles. No food sharing of course.
And the NOT SO SMALL PRINT!
Please let us know if your child has any behavioural issues. If there are tools to make your child feel at home and welcome, please share them. The less surprises we have- the better able we are to manage a child who finds new activities stressful or confronting. We will also ensure we have the correct staff on board with experience to manage children of varying points of the behaviour spectrum
We have zero tolerance on bullying or aggressive behaviour at any of our programmes. We let the children know this at the start of the day. We don’t give warnings, we will ring a parent to pick the child up. This is for the sense of safety and security of the child being bullied.
Does Your Child Require Medication?
If your child requires medication throughout the day, we need you to fill out the following form: https://www.jotform.com/form/202728717217861 . Thank you
INJURIES DURING CAMP TIME:
We take every precaution possible to ensure child safety: high teacher- student ratios; first aid knowledge and administrations; setting out safety guidelines each morning. Accidents, however, do happen. And more often with children. While we will look after your child if they hurt themselves; and administer first aid; we are not liable for an injury that may occur to your child by accident during our programs. There will be an injury report to sign.
*IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT AFTERCARE- ACTIVITIES + MOVIE
We are writing this point for the benefit of parents who send their kids to Flying Yogis expecting no screen time at all for their children. We are on your side!! We want to provide the most engaging experiences to get them off screens. With this said, our teachers often put on a Disney/ Pixar style children’s movie from about 4pm onwards. Please factor this into your decision when you book.
The decision to put on a movie at 4pm was made so that the teacher can clean up the studio and prepare everything for the next day while the children are safe and entertained. if we were to provide more guided minding and activities, then clean/ prepare after all the children have gone, the cost of our program would be closer to the $50 per child mark.. We also have to keep in mind that our teachers need to relax after a big day with the kids. An extra 90 mins/ 2 hrs of cleaning after 5:30Pm renders them exhausted very quickly. Until we have more conscructive solution, please accept this as our present decision in order to be able to offer the convenient care service for full time workers.
*NOW FOR THE RIOT ACT- ABOUT PICKING UP CHILDREN LATE!!
If you are more than 10 minutes late to pick up your child after 3pm, you will be charged for aftercare ($30). And please please respect our staff . They are exhausted… they want to go home; they may have after work plans;- or at the very least- they need to prepare everything for the next day’s activities. We trust you understand.
