Why the overlap in ages: Some 7 year olds stay with the younger group until they are 8 and others move up the minute they turn 7. Being 7 is a critical time in a child's life and it is important from an educational perspective that a child can be in the group that best suits them as individuals at this age. If you're not sure, our tutors will happily give you their professional feedback and we can make the decision togetherThe other two critical ages in childhood are 10 and 13 so we have overlapped these age bands as well. It is important during these significant times in a childs journey that they train with a group that suits their social and emotional level.
With profesionalism and positivity. Our teachers weave their magic by inspiring you to learn. Each lesson is designed with a specific Learning Objective. We are an education based company with years of EDUCATION experience and qualifications behind us.
We do recommend that you book in advance to avoid missing a place. If you want to wait and trial a class then you may need to change the venue if the class is already full. By the time we hit week 4 in Term 3 all classes are closed to new enrolments for the rest of the year while we weave our magic and build our stage items for the end of year shows. Remember too that there is never any risk to enrol; all new enrolments are covered by the Directors Personal Guarantee. If after coming to and participating in the first four sessions, you are not happy with the Pform.nz experience, we will graciously refund you in full. Note that you must attend all four consecutive sessions to be eligible for the refund and the refund is not available for the Full Year Promo Pack which is a non-refundable Promotion.

Of course you can! The first time you introduce your child to us, you will want to stay to observe us in action. After that, you are welcome to stay and watch but remember that the students get the best value out of these classes when there are no distractions. We are a strong education based company and the classes are about the children, the learning objectives and the pedagogy.
