Little Rippers for 3-5 year old kids
Little Rippers is an award winning program that is exclusive to The Lakes SLSC that caters to 3-5 year old children.
We developed the Little Rippers program to focus on younger children and teach them vital beach safety skills, while having loads of fun at the same time.
Little Rippers runs for 45-60 minutes each Sunday morning during the Nippers season (October - February/March) from 8:30am.
We start by playing games and activities on the beach and on the grassed area in front of the clubhouse and progress to completing games & activities on the waters edge when the kids' are comfortable with the beach environment. The kids do not enter the deep water and activities are limited to being on shore to allow the waves to safely wash up to the kids.
Little Rippers is one of the most popular programs in our Junior Activities program and spaces fill up very fast. Be sure to register your child via our mobile app or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to secure a place.
What to expect on Sunday mornings at Little Rippers
Your child will be allocated a group and we will be on the lookout for parent helpers to be the 'age manager' for that group. We usually try to have at least two age managers for every group and invite all parents to get involved and participate in the activities with the children.
There are several different activity stations that are set up around the beach each week and each Little Rippers group will rotate through the stations to allow the kids to have a go at each activity for the week.
