Our Studio at Everton Park
Where can I park?
Parking is available directly out the front of our building or in Drake street to the side of our building. Drake St can be accessed from The Old Northern Rd, Everton Park.
How many teaching rooms do you have?
We run two teaching classrooms on the same premises, at the same time. This is why some classes from different programs are scheduled at the same time.
Do you have internal bathrooms?
Yes, bathrooms are easily accessed by our students. A single pram does fit into our bathroom, and we also provide a baby change table.
Do I need to sign my child in / out of class?
For our TreeHouse holiday workshops, all children must be signed in and out of class by their adult. For our term classes this is not required, as a teacher will mark a roll in class.
How long have you been running for?
Flying Fox Studios opened our Everton Park premises in September 2006. What a fun 8 years it has been!
Enrolling for a Class
How can I enrol for a class?
The majority of our students enrol online. This is by far the easiest way to register! Bookings can also be made over the phone or at the Everton Park studio. For bookings simply create an account via our website, click your activation link emailed to you, and then book your chosen program.
Can I enrol after term has started? Yes. After the start of term fees are simply adjusted on a pro-rata basis. This is done online automatically, so you can book a class online at any time and will only be charged for the lessons left in the term. The only exception to this is our Young Child program, where children must first enrol into Semester 1, before progressing to Semesters 2, 3, & 4.
How do I know if a class still has places available?
Our online booking system shows our availibility in real time. This means that if a class displays a 'book now' or 'login to enrol' button then there are still places available. As soon as the last place in the class is filled, it will automatically display 'booked out'. Our system does not show classes that have limited places, so if you would like to enquire about how many places are still available please phone our office.
How do I enrol a friend / cousin / extra child into a class?
Simply add their names and birth dates to your account.This can be done by clicking on 'my account'. Scroll down to where is says 'Children for user' then click 'add new'.
Help, I enrolled into the wrong class.
No problem, just send us an email, or phone us and we can easily correct it for you.
The class I want is booked out, can I be placed on a waiting list for next term?
Yes, we do accept waiting list names. Our system operates on an 'opt in' policy for each term. For various reasons, we believe this is the best way to offer children's term activity classes. As each new term opens for enrolments (usually 3-4 weeks before the end of the previous term) all class places open up and spots are booked on a 'first come, first served basis' for the following term.
The entire age group I am looking for is full, will you be adding extra classes?
We are aware that some of our age groups are often very full. We have worked exceptionally hard over the years to create a simply wonderful program, with great teachers, small class sizes, and a family friendly atmosphere. While we would love to add extra classes when age groups fill, this is often simply not possible due to the amount of preperation and clean up that our classes require, and the late hours our teachers are already scheduled.
My child is outside the set age range for a class, can they still enrol?
Our system gives a 4 week 'grace' period either side of age cut offs. Outside of this 4 week period, we are unable to book outside the specified age range.
For children who are prep age, but starting school a year later than usual, the correct class to enrol into is the pre-prep / Kindy age group.
How many kids are there enrolled per class?
A very common question! The answer really depends on the age group and structure of the class. As a rough guide;
Are younger or older siblings allowed in my Kindermusik or ZoomArt class?We would prefer that if parents have an alternate option for an older or younger sibling, they are not brought along to class. We do however realise this is not always an option for every family, and are happy to have siblings in the class room if needs be.
Please note: Past experience has shown younger toddler siblings attending with a parent and enrolled child in our Scribblers art classes can be tricky. There will be items located on the floor and low shelves (such as hand washing up buckets, paints etc.) that may be of great interest to a toddler. If you are unsure, come along for a trial lesson and see how your little ones go.
How many parents can attend a class with one child? Parents are present in the classroom with the children in the following age groups only: Kindermusik Village Babies, Kindermusik Our Time, & ZoomArt for Kids Scribblers.We usually allocate space for one child and one parent per class, however we love to have mums / dads / grandparents who can't regularly attend class come along as well. If you would like an extra adult attend class please check with us first to make sure there is enough space. For older classes, the whole family is welcome to make use of our backyard / waiting facilities during class time.
What happens if I miss a lesson? If you miss a lesson you are welcome to come along to a make up class at another timeslot during your enrolled term. This make up class needs to be booked in advance and completed within your enrolled unit. All make up lessons are subject to availability, and are not able to be carried over from one term to the next.
My child would like me to stay in the classroom, is this ok? Carers are in the classroom with the children in the following age groups only. Kindermusik Village Babies, Kindermusik Our Time, and ZoomArt for Kids Scribblers. Kindermusik Imagine That class will have parents in the lesson for the last 15 minutes of class to participate in group activities. In all other classes and workshops it is required that carers wait outside the classroom during the lesson.
I am now unable to attend my booked class, am I able to receive a refund?
Term Classes (ZoomArt for Kids, Kindermusik, Fox Blocks). All deposits paid are non refundable. If notice of a cancellation is given 7 days prior to the class starting a refund of term fees paid will be given. After this time refunds are unable to be offered.
Holiday Workshops. A full refund is offered on a workshop cancellation when 7 days notice is given. After this period the workshop booked may be transferred to an althernate workshop for the same week. This transfer is subject to class availability. If no alternate class is available, and less than 7 days notice of cancellation has been given, a refund will not be available.
What are your shop opening hours?
