Situated at Funnell HQ, Fun Kids is Hillcrest’s hive for modern moms specialising in toddler play based, educational classes focusing on early childhood developmental skills such as fine motor skills, gross motor skills, music, arts and crafts, song and rhyme, sensory play and a time for moms to spend quality time with their little ones.

Our purpose built, kid-friendly, playground  is available for hire as a small party venue.


Fun Kids offers stimulating, interactive classes for mums and tots aged 1 years old to 3 years old.

In each class we cover a range of themes and topics that a child will experience in their world. We explore these themes through sensory and tactile play, music, arts and craft, gross and fine motor activities as well as social and emotional skills to ensure your baby shines as one of the brightest stars.

A lesson will be 90 minutes long with 45-60 minutes of indoor activities and 30-45minutes of structured outdoor play.

During this time mums can socialise and enjoy refreshments while their little one is engaged and active during free play.

Classes are a wonderful meeting place for mothers to get to know fellow moms and babes in their community.

The lessons will run according to School Terms with one lesson a week for each age group.

Pop-Up Classes will be held on Saturday mornings and during school holidays, with all details provided via our social media platforms.

Currently for the remainder of 2018 of classes are as follows:

12 to 18 months

18 to 24 months

In 2019 we will be introducing a 3-4 year old group and an afternoon school readiness class for Grade R children that will be non worksheet based and will follow the CAPS curriculum.

The Queen Bee’s

We are sister in laws who both had our very first babies within 7 months of each other, so are fortunate to have the help and support of each other during and after pregnancy.  It made us realise just how much mom’s need to share, learn and lean on other mom’s who are too experiencing the same joys of motherhood.

We found that while being “stay at home moms” we were always looking for things keep us and our babies entertained, we craved adult interaction and loved being around other moms and babies of similar ages.  With the perfect location and an already established name in the Hillcrest area, we decided to start our own Funnell enterprise, namely Fun Kids.
