I can't say enough wonderful things about The Mini Movement Cairns! It is hands down our little man's favourite activity, he gets to sing and dance, learn how to play a new instrument every lesson and he absolutely loves his teacher! There is a focus on rhythm and percussion, which he loves, and all of the kids receive personalized attention and support. The classes are very relaxed and inclusive, nothing is ever a problem and you never feel rushed. We are very grateful to Karli for providing us with such a supportive and creative safe space where my son can just be himself. Highly recommend 🙂Natalie WithcherToddler Class
My Mini Movement and infant massage session with my daughter on a Wednesday is a highlight of my week. It is a special time set aside to enjoy music, massage, mindfulness and connection together. The classes are engaging, positive and relaxing. Rosie loves socialising with the other babies, mums and Karli the facilitator. I cannot recommend this class highly enough.Sarah GoughNon-Mobile Baby Class
Thank you to Karli at The Mini Movement for providing a wonderful experience for my 11- month-old daughter and I. With songs to transition between activities, instruments and colourful interactive equipment, it feels like a live Wiggles workshop. These classes have been a great way to bond with my child and teach her the value of communication via music.Happy ParentCrawler Class
Amadeus absolutely loves coming to your weekly classes ❤️ It's a real joy to see how happy he gets when we arrive and he sees your face 🥰 Armie has grown so much since we started coming, not only with his development, but also with his patience and behaviour. I also teared up when he started copying your movements to one of your songs. It's beautiful to share and watch this with you. Thank you for everything Karli ❤️ We love you ❤️Natty and ArmadeusToddler Class
"I can highly recommend The Mini Movement Cairns! Their nice small classes are structured in a way that you don't have to feel like you've got to try and put yourself out there to be involved. You can simply enjoy some connection with your baby, and he'll still get the benefit of socializing with other babies and learning new things. 😊 Thank you! 🥰 We all love coming to the classes! Clem is always singing the songs at home, even though she rarely joins in while we're there. She has come such a long way since we started, though."Olivia, Clementine and Marigold.Toddler Class
I started when my Bub was in infant massage classes. I learnt a lot about how to massage correctly and it helps me so much (still today) especially with teething and sore bellies. We then moved up to the crawlers class which was more interactive for my crazy little man. He was 7 months old our last class this term (before we went on holidays) and he loves interacting with the songs, instruments and playing with other kids. I found it also very good for me as I was able to make mum friends and share our experiences.Kirra and HardieCrawler class
