All Access Circus – A Play Space for Neurodivergent Kids

Castlemaine Circus is piloting a winter holiday program for neurodivergent kids. We would love you to enrol in a class and then share your experience to help make the best neuro-friendly class ever for your kids! 

The classes will be both structured and exploratory so kids can choose what to do engage with, learn at their own pace and have fun in the circus space. We want to provide an opportunity for kids to grow in confidence, be creative, be physical and feel welcomed.

There will be two amazing trainers leading and supporting the class of 10 maximum students. There will be a chill out area in the space with sensory play. The circus classes will have a quieter atmosphere (juggling, tumbling, aerials) while the parkour class will have more energetic one (leaping, running, jumping, vaulting).

Carers should come into the space to begin the class and support their child. Carers are then welcome to stay for some or all of the class with the option of going back and forth depending on what works best for their child. Carers can sit in the foyer and watch through the big glass windows.
