My daughter really likes her teachers/coaches, I do not know their exact qualifications but they all seem well supported and love their job. It is non-competitive which really suits my daughter. The equipment looks great and the gym seems really well set up (for parents and gymnasts).
love how the children can have fun while exercising, learning new skills and an opportunity to partcipate in group activites - other skills to learn like sharing, waiting turns, listening to instructions etc.
My kids have been coming for six months, one in the Ninja program and the other in gymnastics. The facilities and the programs offered are fantastic. However, I must say, I am constantly blown away by the level of care, commitment and compassion all the coaches display. The coaches are remarkable people, and make this place amazing.
Thanks so much for an amazing Ninja party. Staff were energetic and friendly. Wonderful birthday venue, highly recommend.
I have found ALL staff to be so friendly & happy to have a chat if needed. My daughter loves going there. She looks forward to it all week & always comes out so happy.
I like the way the coaches actually cater to individual children. The program allows all children to improve their skills in their own time while still being a part of a group. Individual achievements are celebrated, regardless of which skill level the child is at, encouraging the children to continue to improve. The supportive and non competitive environment is brilliant. The coaches have a wonderful rapport with the kids.
We came for a trial and both my kids were warmly welcomed by the coaches. The coaches kept them engaged the whole class and they seemed to do purposeful things rather than just running around aimlessly. I came for one child's trial and left with two kids wanting to come back tomorrow. We're staying!
It's very inclusive of my special needs son, and ninja is so good for him
The coaches and staff are approachable and friendly. The place is clean and always has different activities setup each week to further develop skills but also keeping each class exciting and challenging. It’s great that makeup classes are offered aswell.
My daughter loves coming each week and it has built her confidence.
It is a professional organisation that offers classes at times convenient for me and my family. Above all, my kids enjoy the classes, build friendships and continue to learn and progress over time.
Definitely the growth mindset but I also believe gymnastics is a sport that helps kids move better which translate to better focus on the class room!
Philosophy based around the whole child, not just physical development. My kids love to come, so we love it. Wonderful coaches.
My daughter loves kinder gym at Skylark. She started at the beginning of this year and she is enjoying learning new gymnastics skills. We tried our first online class this morning, which was also fun.
The classes are well organised and the coaches take the time to give feedback and ideas for practice at home. I am really pleased with the quality of the program.
The coaches are so knowledgeable. They are all incredibly supportive to my child and balance this with discipline. My child hates missing class. His skills and body confidence have developed a long way since joining, almost always outdoing kids at school. Happy child, happy life ! Thank you for a wonderful program.
My sons instructor is very encouraging and my son thrives with this.
I love the flexibility of it all from being able to change days easily to being able to book in make up lessons for whenever it suits us with no hassle. And of course, seeing the smile on my daughters face when it’s gymnastics day.
My child is excited to attend each class, the instructors are AMAZING!! I love the app to mark absences and book make ups. Mt Wav location is clean, bright and fun. We love the skills (physical, verbal, teamwork, confidence) my child is developing
The coaches are all friendly and fun, staff helpful. You put kids first before high performance or achieving the best gymnastics results.
My son is in KinderGym at Mt Waverley. I just wanted to say how amazing the experience has been. He can have a bit of a temper and get frustrated but the teachers are so patient with him and he is thriving and getting more and more engaged each week.
Thank you to the team for all your hard work.
What I like best about skylark sports, is how much confidence my daughter has gained.
Since our 4yr old has been going to Skylarks Mount Waverley we have seen dramatic improvements in a variety of areas. We have seen her muscles get stronger over time along with her cardio fitness as well as her balance and posture. More importantly to us, we have seen improvements in her ability to listen and carry out instructions, work with other children, take turns and be able to express herself with clear communication.
It has been excellent preparation for primary school by having her interact with coaches and peers that she did not previously know through childcare or kinder. We were also very fortunate to have ongoing support from Skylarks in regards to our daughters potential ASD diagnosis. The staff at Skylarks Mount Waverley work with children of various abilities and are very experienced at helping children and their families navigate through challenges that can arise.
If you're looking for a welcoming, family friendly, all-round fitness and well-being activity for your child, check this place out. Thanks guys!
that it is individual, so my child can work at their own pace/ability (not all children are good at or engaged in team sports), the coaches really know the kids and are very encouraging and happy to speak to parents after class
Great facilities. Friendly and supportive admin staff. Passionate, friendly and supportive coaches. Inclusive and inspiration to grow culture.
Conveniently located and the coaches are very dedicated.
The vibe and staff. They are super encouraging and supportive The customer service is top notch too
Amazing, patient coaches. A safe and encouraging atmosphere for children to build strength, skills and confidence but most of all have fun. Great entertainment for kids birthdays clean and safe environment.
I wanted my introvert 2yo daughter to do kindergym because she was prompt to tripping over and hurting herself. Now, after attending kindergym for more than 6 months, she’s become more agile, adventurous and confident in exploring new heights and picking herself up after a few falls.
I highly recommend this gym school for building a toddler’s self-confidence whilst still having a lot of fun playing, climbing and expending all the extra energy!
It’s my kids’ feel good place, thanks!
My son loves the Ninja class at Skylark Lynbrook. Venue is well equipped and the teachers are great with kids. Highly recommend.
I always feel so welcome. All the staff are great. My children feel really comfortable, as do I. The facility is clean and bright. And the coach to child ratio is great. My child is well looked after and encouraged to have fun in a calm and happy environment. There is no pressure on them and they are always eager to go.
The energy and care that the team puts into their students. It’s wonderful to see the kids so happy!
It is like a family run business, Jasmine has done an amazing job building a great program, facilities and most importantly team. We love how they come out and actually engage with parents and ensure all kids are collected safely.
Skylark is amazing sporting venue catering for kids of all skill levels. They have super encouraging coaches and provide an array of classes. My daughter has been attending for many years and loves going to her squad classes. Her skills and confidence have grown in so many areas of her life.
During lockdown, they have kept in touch with all their squad kids and have run zoom training and sent out home training sessions for the whole family to keep. They have donated many of these services to those who could not afford them and are all about the 'kids' not about the business.
Could not recommend more highly!
Friendly coaches which seem to have a genuine interest in my child and his learning
The BEST gymnastics class! The teachers are absolutely wonderful! They take great care with the kids, they give them all attention during their lessons and the facilities are awesome for the kids and parents. Highly recommend this place!
Friendly coach and staff, my kids love them too
The ninja program. Gym coaches are friendly, demonstrate the drills/skills really well, keep the class moving with little distraction, recognise development in the kids. The kids have fun and love their coaches.
From a young age children learn through play. You provide that for them and Make learning loads of fun. The staff are tremendous! 15yr olds love training to music too. Gaining strength and discipline is a major confidence boost.
The facilities are wonderful, and my daughter is well supported by the coaches
My daughter is challenged to extend herself in a caring and friendly environment. She always comes out energised and wanting to return.
Inclusive, encouraging and helpful trainers.
Having an introvert small daughter find something she likes and something she is good at has been a gift. She feels like she belongs in a group and team. It’s brought some confidence to her and helped immensely with her social skills. The communication is phenomenal. Sam is absolutely brilliant helping me sort make up classes etc. The parking is fab!!! Being able to eyeball staff and see what the children are up to on occasion is amazing. Handy to know what is going on.
The sense of family and togetherness. An amazing positive environment that provide so much encouragement and great friendship. My daughter would be lost without acrobatics.
Ninja program is innovative. My children have loved being a part of it at both Waverley and Lynbrook. Most coaches are caring, interested in my children, and role models who participate in the programs/sports they teach.
From the first visit my son was made welcome, and has felt like every class has been great - he's always happy to attend. The ninja coaches are amazing at combining the core gym skills with a fun learning environment.
The staff are really enthusiastic and build genuine rapport with the kids. Mia can’t wait to bound out of the car. They teach skill in a fun way, and show obvious enjoyment of their jobs.
If my son could live there, he would! Great programs and awesome staff. Highly recommend to children of all ages.
The coaches seem to really care about the kids, and have a good handle on child development, child psychology and consent. I've been really impressed with how they've handled my younger child's extreme shyness early on, and my older child's ADHD, and gender diversity.
What amazing coaches. Been going here for over 5 years at least. Anything with Ninja in the title is a winner!
Each Child is allowed to grow and develop skills at their own pace, they learn from other students in the class rather than being compared to other students in the class.
My child is happy to attend and loves spending time in the session. The coaches are switched on to my child's needs and understand her quirkiness.
I like that it is local and that the kids love coming and it’s great to watch their progression.
Skylark very good..i like the parents area where you actually can see your child doing things 🙂 love it
The environment and coaching staff, they are so encouraging and nurturing of all the children.
Location, times, it’s easy, the staff are amazing and my kids love it. It’s taught them how to use their bodies and confidence.
We love the Teachers. Cleanliness of the facility. My daughters just loves gymnastics and wouldn't take her anywhere else. She has learnt and had fun along the way. Would highly recommend Skylark Lynbrook
I can see improvements in my child's strength after one term, she finishes classes puffed out - she has physically worked in the class (unlike her ballet lessons!) and she enjoys the sense of achievement of being able to do new things and learn new skills
You value and respect the child. You see and develop the student. We had ups and downs but you foster resilience and listen to student and parents. We feel seen, heard and valued.
The staff and facilities are fantastic, they have also handled the pandemic and constant changes fantastically.
Skylark Sports makes sport fun, and my child is excited and happy to go every week. They maintain a sense of continuity even when there is a change in coaches. Skylark sports maintain a sense of community and 'togetherness' even during the extended lockdowns, which stood out in comparison with other organisations.
My child enjoys the lessons and the teacher. She is challenged by the different activities and it’s great for her fitness and strength.
My kids have newly started at Skylark and they are always looking forward to their Ninja/Parkour/Gymnastic classes. Their teachers are engaging, fun and enthusiastic. A bonus is, classes are run on the school holidays too.
We have been a part of the Skylark family from it’s early beginnings. My kids love Skylark and it has helped them grow in many ways, from physically mastering techniques, helping them develop confidence and new friendships, fitness and fun and always with a growth mindset attitude. I have always found the staff to be so kind, helpful and most of all encouraging and fun for the kids.
I love that if my son misses a class he gets to make it up and that there is a class pretty every day of the week he can go to. The coaches are great and my son really enjoys going!
Great coaches and everyone is so inviting and they keep everyone safe. Would recommend been here for 5 years
I Love that skylark focuses on the positive and helps kids to realise their own dreams, not the parents dreams. I think you have a wonderful sense of community at Skylark that makes the kids proud of what they are doing and how hard they have to work to achieve. It is important that you focus on positive education unlike other gym clubs and you encourage a growth mindset in all your programs.
Both my sons love the ninja classes. Great coaches who are patient and inspiring to young minds whilst growing healthy bodies. All staff are exceptional, responsive and very organised.
I like that it is less rigid than traditional, yet more structured than recreational. Skills based, core strength and confidence building.
Sometimes you luck into finding people who are really good at what they do ... great trainers and facility
It is about developing children's confidence in a fun and active way and my son loves it.
The staff all seem to love what they do. Many of the coaches seem to know my daughter's name, even if they have not coached her before. I am enjoying the new skills progress update system. The holiday program also worked out really well for us. We also had a birthday party when our daughter turned 4 and that was great.
Skylark seems to have a perfect balance between achievements and participation via the focus on growth mindset. It’s about doing YOUR best and continuing to try and get better and a lot less about winning/competing against others etc. This means it’s not just about how good your child is, everyone has a place to build confidence and do well.
The coaches are great with children with additional needs. So happy
Ever since my son started kinder gym, its the best part of his week. He loves it and has grown and developed so much in the past year. He has improved so much in this time.
I love everything! The coaches are experienced, friendly, and make the classes fun for the kids. There are a good range of classes and times. I like the fact that parents can stay or go. My son has been coming for about 3 years and is very happy doing Skylark classes.
I greatly appreciate the focus on doing your personal best, growth mindset, confidence through movement, positive body image, always trying and that all are welcome. That coaches genuinely want what’s best for each child.
I can't wait to come in on Monday! You're always going above and beyond.
♥️ Thank you so much.
Make up classes are awesome. We really value this flexibility that you offer, when there is so much uncertainty about whether we would be well or sick or need to isolate or not. Sometimes I only found out that my child is sick a couple of hours prior to their class at Skylark, and your staff responses have always been positive, understanding and kind. We love that your focus is on child's well being, both mental and physical. I feel there's no judgment and you welcome a whole range of skills and abilities.
Skylark Sports has one of the great gymnastics facilities I've seen. It is very spacious and even lets parents/guardians sit to watch their kid's progress, which is very important for me. The coaches are skillful and friendly. The staff are very welcoming and professional. It is easy to book for make up classes. And most of all, my daughter enjoys and loves doing gymnastics at Skylark Sports.
The attitude of staff and the desired values of children mental and physical strengths.
Great work . Friendly team . Happy child
The staff are amazing. They connect with the students and are so patient, nurturing and kind.
My kids absolutely love it here. The staff are amazing & their programs really keep the children focused whilst having fun. Thank you for your hard work & welcoming atmosphere, we really appreciate it.
I have always found staff professional & friendly. It’s obvious the staff work to a very high standard that is set. My kids have always loved coming to gym & have learnt a lot of basic skills that have now lent them to their other sports.
I like that my grandson is constantly moving for over an hour. When he achieves a mission it gives him confidence and he feels good about himself.
Kinder gym is a great outlet for my energetic and active child who loves jumping and climbing on everything. Great place for her to socialise and teaches her safe movement and strength to protect her later in life. Also a fun hobby that she loves.
Caring, friendly and well trained coaches.
I like the professional approach by the office staff, they are always very helpful. I like that there is a head coach keeping an eye on all classes
It’s not a serious class for little ones and doesn’t put pressure on them. The face that we can also see our children when they are at the class is a HUGE plus.
The teachers are approachable and are aware my child's interests and needs.
I've brought all 3 of my boys through Skylark Kindergym since 2016, and we have loved all our coaches we've had through that time. Anya really is something special. Her patience, understanding, knowledge and passion is rarely seen in kids sports activities these days and I just wanted to let you know that we appreciate her! She is wonderful & Finn is really enjoying his classes.
The warm and friendly atmosphere plus the personal service, Skylark staff speak to you like you are part of the team, I’ve had other places where we don’t even get an acknowledgment or a phone call back. Coaches are accessible for a chat about my child’s progression.
The coaches have been an amazing positive influence on both of my children, and especially helpful in developing a growth mindset.
I loved that they had a program that catered to my sons interest in jumping, climbing and swords. What more could a 5 year old want?
My daughter loves attending, I can see takes in the information and feel that she's challenged in a positive way to be physically active. She's made fantastic friends. I love the 'no pressure' fun aspect of Skylark - that she doesn't have to be at competition level.
Very friendly and welcoming place. Great attention to detail. The coaches are wonderful people who remember names of children, siblings and parents which is actually really important!
I love that I can get both my kids into their classes one after each other. I love the stations and pace of the class. It's moves along well and keeps them busy. The variety of activities each week is great for their progression.
I like seeing how far my daughter has come and how much fun she has. And the staff are amazing
Staff are great: coaches, admin, etc. They know our kids. Our kids love it and are growing stronger and more capable. It's not a pressured environment but it is skills focussed and extends where appropriate.
Great gymnastics teaching and amazingly friendly staff!
I like it when coaches give insightful feedback, and that there’s a time between the classes to do so. Training times suit us well. My child is really connecting to all the coaches, including Jaz who showed tremendous sensitivity to my child’s needs. I love that children come first at Skylark and that there’s always an understanding that everyone should be heard. I love all the customer service team!!
My child has made significant and obvious progress since she started only a few months ago. The environment is positive and supportive with clear expectations of behaviour but is also fun
I would like to thank all of the staff at Skylark’s for an incredible job. From the moment we walk in the door, my family are always welcomed. The admin staff are absolutely amazing & complete their job with such wonderful customer service & attention to detail. The coaching & management staff are friendly, enthusiastic & always very professional, my children have always had such a great time in their classes. I love that there is so much planning put into all of the programs as this is evident in the skills they have learnt & has helped maintain their enthusiasm during their classes.
For a child that is extremely introverted and finds it challenging to let go of us, all the staff have been very supportive of us and her showing so much compassion and understanding. It is such a beautiful and encouraging environment and she always leaves with such a big smile in her face and feeling so proud of her achievements.
Committed team aiming to build confidence in young children. My daughter’s happy place!
Skylark Sports is fantastic. They are excellent teachers, considerate of all their students, great communicators, and my daughter has a great time in her lessons.
Great coaches, very patient, and my kids are having lots of fun in learning gymnastics. Thank you!
They are professional, they know my daughter and are relaxed.
The unique Ninja program that my son really enjoyed. Very customer-focused staff and warm welcoming approach to the children.
The best thing about skylark for us is the teachers. My daughter loves ninja. Every Saturday morning she wakes up super early to get ready even though her class is at 10:40am she just loves it. The teachers are so engaging and fun they really are a great bunch I love seeing them interact all together.
The acceptance of my child’s wish to develop her skills in a non competitive environment really works for my child. She can enjoy her sport and develop without the stress of competing .
I love the range of classes that they have. My son didn't know what sport to do but when he came across Ninja skills he was sold. The staff are very friendly and helpful (both the coaches and reception staff). It's great how trial classes and make up are offered. It's such a fun place for the kids while they're being taught skills by professional coaches.
Thank you for being so kind and accommodating to Bronte and I. The instructors (Alex and Jacob) were also great... caring and encouraging.
I've brought all 3 of my boys through Skylark Kindergym since 2016, and we have loved all our coaches we've had through that time.
Anya really is something special. Her patience, understanding, knowledge and passion is rarely seen in kids sports activities these days and I just wanted to let you know that we appreciate her! She is wonderful & Finn is really enjoying his classes.
Dwight is so helpful and patience. Best service and best staff in town ❤️
Small classes, staff are very friendly and I think it’s really important to have kids move their bodies so I really like the focus on getting kids school ready though movement, following instructions. I’m really impressed with the kinder gym program.
I like the confidence that my child builds through developing her skills and strength. She enjoy's going and seems to enjoy the stiffness after her classes!
Not only focuses on improving the children’s physical abilities but also focus on developing their confidence and mindset - skills that they can utilise in their everyday life.
I like that every child over there is well taken care of, taking into consideration, their ability /limitations... Kids are encouraged to try again and again until they get it or at least till they are confident about a certain move.. Both of my daughters leave with sweat and smile on their faces!
My daughter is loving ninja this term and every week her confidence in class is growing. Thank you to the ninjas for the amazing job you do!!!
I think I spend more time at Skylark than at home?!
Catering for kids of all ages, skill levels, shapes, etc with an ability to stimulate casual and social acrobats/ninjas through to elite international acro competition, all with an emphasis on fun, resilience and a growth mindset!
My son loves it. There is nothing else like it in the area and having fantastic male and female role models is great for sll children
It is clear the staff all care about the children’s wellbeing and development
My daughter has been training with Skylark for just 3 months after leaving another dance program. In those three months she has become so much stronger, confident and capable.
We love skylark and recommend it to everyone!
All children are embraced at Skylark. It is a safe space where my children can be themselves and get their bodies moving at the same time.
Customer service is amazing, super responsive to emails, the coaches are amazing with my child and so patient. The facility is always clean and the equipment and classes are tailored to his age.
Teaching skill sets which will apply to future activities/sports. Focus on technique. Boys can attend same class as girls which means more choice of classes (i.e. boys are not stuck to Friday evenings!)
Great coaches! They are very positive, knowledgeable and supportive.
The coaches really know how to engage preschool children.. this is super important. I also like how it teaches essential skills preschoolers should learn which I also like. I love that they break up into small groups so each child can get attention
Well done Skylark - great to see the consideration and proactiveness for child safety. Keep it up! My Daughters are loving Skylark - the positivity of instructors and the welcoming environment is super duper 🙂
My son has been attending Ninja Gymnastics for a number of years at Skylark and absolutely loves it. The coaches put so much time and effort in to making the program fun and enjoyable and really want the best for all participants. The communication from staff is excellent and I have always been impressed by the professionalism of everyone we have dealt with. The facilities are well maintained and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Skylark to anyone looking for a high quality gymnastics program for their child.
Building confidence, motor skills and strength through activities that interests specific age groups. Make up class expiry date is generous Instructors are encouraging and provide feedback when required. They dont push the kids too far.
I love that there’s no cap on make up classes. And the portal is very easy to use.
My child loves it! His confidence in climbing/playing has improved heaps.
We would readily recommend Skylark to friends and family, and will gladly do so in future, as you guys really have been great. Your coaches have been really engaged, knowledgeable and with excellent communication, and we really appreciated Oliver having the chance to try the all boys class too. The centre is really warm and welcoming 🙂
Love this place and the people, very helpful, accommodating to both my kids, Wyatt & Claire; they are loving this place, good foundation with various activities. Highly recommended, great job guys!
The space to let kids to learn and very passionate staff
Ninja is an interesting program and fits my child's needs for exercise, social development. My child is not into team sports but loves climbing, it's been a safe way to tap into this need. Few programs do that.
